We use Asana to manage both to-dos, 1:1s (I like this both for pre-prepared agenda items with my manager and also ad-hoc tasks that come up in our meetings --- can also roll them into larger projects after scoping if necessary), and larger-level sales training projects. I think it works fairly well in addition to a process-driven kick-off form that we use in order to get the project approved from sales leadership and other stakeholders.
We also really think about the "why" that we'll deliver and what format we'll use to roll out the training.
We transitioned over from Smartsheet about a year ago (I like Smartsheet's Gant charts better), but I think Asana has better UI. In addition to these software apps, I think I live and die by digital calendar in Outlook for work / G-calendar for home life. I've never really been able to do the physical planner thing.
I started with a notebook and pen. Then I just used post it. Then I used the To-Do App from Microsoft Then I bought an Ipad and now I use Good Notes, which has improved my productivity because I love to take my own nows rather than typing so with the pen it´s fantastic.
Notion & google cal has been fantastic, keeping it as simple as possible is what has kept me from feeling like I'm swimming in "to-do"s. I love Notion's how customizable Notion is, and I heavily utilize google cal's reminder or task features.
I've installed HubSpot at 3 companies now. It's got its quirks, but it does the job in a far more simple way than SFDC. I also don't need to know how to code to make custom properties or land some integrations.
I use Google Keep. It is ok. A few years back I used something I loved but can't for the life of me find it again. Help! Every time I opened a new tab, it was my to do list. Genius because it followed me everywhere. And simple.
Yellow legal pad and pen. I also keep my inbox minimal - if it's in my inbox it needs to be acted on. If there's some to do from an email then I'll add it to my (written) list and archive the message. I can't escape my list, can't minimize it, it won't crash, haha, always staring at me.
I live by my CRM, hubspot. I used to set tasks, but with how updated i keep it in combination with my loan origination system, it's pretty easy to know what needs to be done. If nothing needs to be done on my current pipeline, i need to be finding more deals!
I use a pen and a pad. Every morning before I get the work day started I write down “what do I want to accomplish today” and I write down everything I want to accomplish in my personal and professional life. On too of this I also use the “reminders” function on my iPhone. Between these two things I feel I stay pretty on top of all of the things I want/need to get done.
