To-do list applications can be very useful to increase productivity, organization and efficiency in task and project management. When you have 100,000 things in your head, using an application of this type, allows you to have a clearer head and know that the app will warn you of urgent or priority tasks, you just have to write it down and you can forget about that topic until it touches. I recommend using these applications because they will free your mind, you can get all those tasks out of your head and focus only on getting them done.
Why would you use a to-do list app?
Some advantages of using the todo list applications are:
- Centralization of tasks: You can have all your tasks in one place and easily accessible, which will allow you to have an overview of all your responsibilities and priorities.
- Reminders: To-do list apps often have reminder options, which will help you keep up with important tasks and meet deadlines.
- Share tasks: Many of these apps allow you to share tasks with other users, which is especially useful if you work in a team or have collaborative projects.
- Customization: Some applications allow you to customize the task list and add details such as tags, deadlines, notes, etc.
- Accessibility: Most to-do list apps have a mobile version, which will allow you to access your tasks anytime, anywhere.

And if you don’t like any…
You have a traditional option that also works well, notebook and pen. When I have a lot of work saturation it is what works best for me, I write the tasks of the day and cross out the ones I finish.
Nowadays there are a lot of to-do list tools to help us in our day to day. Ideally, you should choose the one you like the most and above all save you time. The important thing is that you improve your productivity, which is the purpose of these apps.
I have been using applications of all lists for years, every so often I have seen that the one I used did not meet 100% what I needed and was going from one to another. Today I am with Notion, but if it ends up not fulfilling what I need, I will not mind changing to another, because the important thing is not the task app used, but the one that allows you to meet your goals and best suits your style.
