If you’re starting or running an online business, you will inherently have hundreds of to dos, discussions, files, and deadlines to manage. It can quickly get overwhelming and make you feel pulled in a hundred different directions.
You can go old school and try to manage your to dos with pen and paper, and have discussions with your team members or people you’ve hired via email, but you’ll most likely get loopy trying to manage everything that way.
At the very least, you’ll be wasting a lot of time that you could be spending doing other things to grow your business.
There’s a kind of web tool called project management software that can make things sooooo much easier for you. This kind of software gives you tools like to do lists, discussion areas for you and your team, file storage, and calendars.
There are dozens of options for project management software, such as Liquid Planner, Central Desktop, Apollo, and Project Bubble. My favorite though, is Basecamp. It’s very easy to use and has an amazing ability to help keep you sane.
Hundreds of to dos can be organized into separate to do lists. All project related discussions with a team can be kept in one space instead of in a heap with all your other emails. Events and milestones can be set on multiple project calendars. Files and documents can be shared and discussed.
Organization of chaos = sanity.
Your mind and body will thank you.
