Project Management Productivity: Using Asana to track all your tasks

I've been using Trello for a long time to manage the tasks and operation of my video business. But since I have multiple projects going on, I wasn't really organizing my personal tasks, or my daily everyday tasks.

I've read before that pen and paper is the best way, and I've tried building a habit out of making a daily task list everyday. It works, but the problem was I wasn't doing it, and I had a a lot of recurring tasks that I didn't necessarily want to write out everyday. I looked into the phone apps stuff, but around the same time I learned Asana from my friend Arielle Hale, who is an operations expert.

This program is so good for looking at an overview of all your tasks for multiple projects. I can create recurring tasks and set them up for myself and organize by client. Check out the video.

What Gets Measured, Gets Managed

"What gets measured, gets managed." - Peter Drucker

There is so much power in this quote. If you've never tracked yourself, you don't even know how much power there is in tracking. I couldn't even explain it adequately. You wouldn't believe me. You'd think I was exaggerating. The simple act of paying attention to something will cause you to make connections you never did before, and you'll improve the those areas - almost without any extra effort.

I'm not a believer in "free lunch" and I don't think the universe vibrates things to you just by thinking about them. But the closest thing to a free lunch getting vibrated to you by the universe is writing things down as they happen.

Before I go any further, I need to give you one piece of advice - start small and build up, so you don't overwhelm yourself. This is just being pragmatic. You want to scale up gradually, as I wrote up in "The Evolution of My Time/Habit/Life Tracking." You want to build small wins, lock them so they become automatic, and then expand.

I'd have a hard time convincing you of the power of tracking, so I'll just show you. I fill this out every single day.
