How to create a to do list online.

Get all those tasks out of your head and into your electronic to do list.

Busy days, weeks, and months can be a lot to track. This is why so many people reach for an online to do list. It’s a great way to free up mental space and manage tasks from any device and location.

So if you’re someone with a lot to manage, here’s how to create an online to do list that works for you.

Create a digital to do list.

The first step to organizing your tasks is creating a list to store them. Explore and compare different to do list online apps and web tools. Once you find one you like, it’s time to brainstorm. Here’s how:

  1. Type out everything you have to do in your list.
  2. Think about how you want to categorize your tasks.
  3. Organize tasks by priority, level of effort, or anything else that makes the most sense for you.

Depending on the to-do list you choose, you can color-code tasks so they’re easy to identify. And if you have more than one list, you can easily merge them together.

Manage your online to do list.

After you’ve listed every task and organized your list, the next step is sticking with it. The best way to do this is to create a list routine. Here are some ideas:

  1. Make it a habit to check your to-do list after each meal.
  2. Set an alarm to update your list every day at the same time.
  3. Revisit your to-do list each time you complete a task.

Don’t forget to make sure your list is easily accessible. Keep the app on your phone’s home screen. Or bookmark a web tool in your browser. Before you know it, checking your to-do list will just feel like second nature.
