A question I often get is, “what project/task management app do you use or recommend?”
Often the real question is, “What’s the magic pill to make my project/task management effortless?”
I don’t use a project/task management app.
And I generally won’t recommend someone start there to get organized.
If you don’t know how to effectively project/task manage, then adding the complexity of learning new software will make your project/task management that much harder.
You probably are busy and have many things happening in your business and life if you’re looking at adding this kind of management app to your business. But it won’t build the foundation for you.
- don’t know what your projects and tasks are
- don’t have your processes and systems set up
Then how can you expect an app to manage them for you?
If you’re moving into a house, you have to decide what goes into each room, closet, cabinet, or drawer before you put things in them.
You can’t effectively use the app if you don’t know what your projects and tasks are or you don’t know your processes and systems.
So, what’s the magic pill to make your project/task management effortless?
Take the time to lay out your projects and tasks and set up your processes and systems.
