Does seeing this icon make your heart beat a little faster too? If not, it SHOULD, and I will tell you why. I am a list maker, I love making lists. I live on lists, lots and lots of lists. If you're like me, between kids and home and dinner and work and bills and everything else, it's hard to keep everything straight and carrying around 500 pieces of paper for each different list gets impractical, not to mention the impossibility of any amount of consecutive time for list making. ENTER WUNDERLIST.
Wunderlist is a list making app. I know it sounds mundane, but this little beauty saves my bacon every day. The app allows you to create various lists that you can manage on an on-going basis, allowing you to add and redeem any list item at any time. It also has a history for each list which lets you look back and verify list items. The other really cool part of this is that you can share lists. So my husband is on my grocery list, it's shared between us, allowing either of us to pick up the listed items when at the store etc.
Fortunately, I found a picture for this with all the lists in a different language, ha ha, but you get the idea. The app builders also included a pleasant "ding ding" when you check off an item from your list. I am not ashamed to say that my brain lets out a hearty cheer every time it hears that "ding ding."
The fact that I can make an ongoing list of what I need to do at work is extremely helpful for my workflow. My mind processes more like a spider web than a straight line; as a result, while in the middle of other things, thoughts pop into my head, and having this app on both my phone and my computer allows me to validate that thought by putting it in a list. This allows me to get right back to work rather than interrupting my flow. I love it. LOVE IT. In fact, I'd be lost without it.
(Disclaimer: Wunderlist has no idea I wrote this and certainly didn't pay me in any way shape or form to write it. I just love Wanderlust enough to dedicate my very own blog post to it :-))
