I know the Clear app isn’t new, but it is new to me. I make lists. Constantly. I try out new to-do apps (reminders, weave, simplenote, epic win etc.) but they never seem quite in tune with the way my brain works. Which is poorly! I swear I have a goldfish brain and will be like oh hey you need lightbulbs and then go to the store and oh hey look a castle and then get home and try to switch on the light and oh hey I need lightbulbs, you dumb butt!
But I’ve been using this for the last couple of weeks, and I just keep getting things done. Things that have needed doing forever. Things that I forget REPEATEDLY. I am getting really good at remembering to add things AS SOON AS I think of them… and I LOVE crossing yet another accomplishment off my list. It is intoxicating stuff for a pea brain list junkie.
Anyway, given that it’s resolution season and new year, new you yadda yadda yadda… I thought I’d share how much it’s helping me already. I find it handy for both the immediate, medium and long term stuff. Like ideas for when I’m bored or things I’ve always dreamed of doing but never remember to pursue… like learning Dutch. Oh, and the drag and drop prioritization is rad and super helpful. The whole thing is good stuff and I was pleased to catch it while it was on sale. It is worth it.
Hooray for being a do-er!
