One of the key ingredients to running a successful business is finding a way to stay organized.  Entrepreneurs have a lot on their plate, so it’s great when we discover tools to help us manage our time more effectively.

I have found that the best way to get more done is to create “To Do” lists.  A few years back I discovered a website that allows me to create these lists online.  Introducing Wunderlist… which in my opinion is absolutely “wunderful”.

Wunderlist is a free and easy to use task manager.  This web-based tool allows you to create a simple “To Do” list for anything you need to get done.  From marketing tasks, to project development, to packing lists, to uncluttering your office.  Whatever list you need to create, Wunderlist can handle it.

When you create your “To Do” lists with Wunderlist, you can choose a date for when each task item needs to be completed, or no due date at all.  Plus you can add a note with additional details for any task on your list.  If you are the kind of person that has multiple “To Do” lists (and who isn’t) you will appreciate that Wunderlist has a nifty feature that allows you to see EVERYTHING you have do… Today, Tomorrow, Next 7 Days, Later, and No Date.  It’s a great way of having a birds-eye view of everything on your plate.

What I especially like is that because it’s web-based you can access it anywhere.  Even better, your lists automatically sync across all computer devices, so you can use your mobile devices (iPhone, Android, iPad, etc.) to manage all your lists.

Wunderlist also gives you the ability to share your to do lists with other people.  So whether you wish to collaborate with your work team, family members, or friends, you can share specific tasks or an entire list by email.  Wunderlist even helps you to stay on task by sending you a friendly reminder when you’ve got tasks that are overdue.

I really like Wunderlist.  It’s clean, simple, and easy to use.  Best of all … it’s free.
