I have many notebooks with little notes in them. I use it as a journal and a planner with my to-do list. The problem is, once the notebook gets filled up, I find another one and put the used one away. Making me forget about it and start afresh.

At times, I plan in my head eliminating the process of writing down which makes me forget some things.

I learnt about an awesome tool recently and to be honest I don’t know why it’s taken me this long to find it.

Trello.

“Trello is a collaboration tool that organizes your projects into boards. In one glance, Trello tells you what’s being worked on, who’s working on what, and where something is in a process.”

I use it to for practically all my planning: create a content calendar, managing my workflow, setting and keeping my goals, saving blog content ideas. I even use it to plan personal projects by separating them in different boards.

When you check it out, this is the lingo you’ll come across.

A board is a page which has lists that will help you see an overview of your projects.

Lists are a breakdown of the tasks you need to remember to do.

Within the list, there are cards which break down the tasks into smaller sizes.

You can add an attachment, checklist, image, deadline or even notes to help you or someone in your team to understand the tasks at hand.

Trello cards are like sticky notes, but better because they are digital, searchable and shareable, and they also come with reminders.

Trello is a fantastic tool to use for personal or business purposes. I love how visual it is because I am a visual person.

Try it out and share your thoughts.
