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.ย 

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.

In the past, I've used:
- Todoist
- Methods from Habit Journal by James Clear to manage to-do/priorities:
Eisenhower Box:ย  https://jamesclear.com/eisenhower-box
- Right now, I'm really into the Ivy-Lee method:ย

Yeah, it's fairly easy to use and can be used for a lot of things, so it's not just an exclusive project management tool or a list tool.

Asana is great. Big believer in it. If you havent used hubspot as a CRM it has a very similar function integrated into it.

Hubspot is great.I think it's a nice tool for lead campaigns. I never really used the CRM portion since I had SFDC as a CRM.ย

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 itยดs fantastic.

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.ย 
A few years back I used something I loved but can't for the life of me find it again. Help!ย 
Every time I opened a new tab, it was my to do list. Genius because it followed me everywhere. And simple.ย

Calendar and notepad.ย 

I have a specific to-do list note pad for tasks and calendar for meetings etc.ย 

The feeling of putting a line through a completed task is unrivalledย

Yellow legal pad and pen.ย  I also keep my inbox minimal - if it's in my inbox it needs to be acted on.ย  If there's some to do from an email then I'll add it to my (written) list and archive the message.ย  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 โ€œwhat do I want to accomplish todayโ€ and I write down everything I want to accomplish in my personal and professional life. On too of this I also use the โ€œremindersโ€ 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.

Trello - I found you can fit more tasks on one screen than Asana with more options to customizeย

The most important thing about having a to-do list is having it present, so write it down. And, if you use a pen and paper the better. Have it present more or less.
