Troubleshooting Tuesday: 3am Board of Directors Meeting :(

 

QB Worried in Bed.pngHey Momentumers! 

 

Is this you: Your eyes spring open at 3am in a panic about your business _______________. If so, fill in the blank, ask let’s get that issue solved!

 

It’s Troubleshooting Tuesday, so post your troubles to get input and support. No need to suffer alone (or at 3am).

 

So tell us, how did you fill in the blank?

'How to keep track of all the varied tasks'

 

Is there an app or system someone loves to use to keep track of all the things to do without piling up post it notes? I want a better sytem to manage tasks!

Great question! I use Wunderlist. It's online and also has an app, so it follows me everywhere.  Downloading tasks definitely keeps those board of directors sleeping! Smiley Wink

"Technology"...
I'm not sure if anyone here has issues with mobile devices, but that's what I have to deal with most of the time.  I work in the field of Technical Support for Mobile Devices, and I fix what's broken, so that people can keep working.  It's not really an issue though, since I'm the one that has to find all the solutions... but it does keep me up at night.

and getting all the work done. 

 

I pride myself on getting the work done quickly and accurately.  So, I lie in bed and worry and just get up and start working.  Sleep is definitley lacking and catching up with me.

Great to see you here @activemode!

 

Taking on other people's issues, can definitley become your issue, and stir those late night meetings!  What do you do to keep the issue under control?

I have to use automation...

There will never be enough technicians to handle all the calls and chats requests, so I'm busy designing "TechBots" to handle the work load.  I receive requests, and then give responses to the issues through email.   Most of the problems can be resolved easily, and I don't charge for simple solutions.

@JulieatTheWELL I use Wunderlist for everything. Works great! It allows to set reminders and create as many lists as you can manage. Smiley Happy

Now that's a GOOD reason for a meeting @jessbru99568!!!! Smiley Wink

 

Yes, love Wunderlist... My Wunderlists were getting out of hand, so now I create a single list, prioritize with stars, due dates, and reminders.... #optimized!

I keep hearing about Wunderlist! I should really check that out.

I designed the example "test bot", to see what was possible.  Some places offer a free 30 day trial period that you can use to your benefit.  These are the same tools larger businesses use to save money on staff and expenses.  So if you're self employed anyway, it just makes sense.

i love to-doist for my catch-all to-do stuff.

i really respond to color and have to have flexibility in that area if i am going to feel organized, so it's perfect for me.
