Not all habits are bad: going to the gym, keeping track of your work, and even remembering to take out the trash are all good ones to have. But to start a good habit and keep it up, you have to be disciplined.
There’s no magic potion or pill to get you up at 6am every morning for a run, but luckily there are tools out there that can help support your habit and give you the motivation you need at the right time.
CloudTasks is a great addition to your productivity plan, and has some handy features built in to keep you on track for the long haul. Let’s take a look at some.
Inbox: where ideas are born.
Perhaps you’re the type of person who has a lot of grand ideas, but often forgets them by the day's end? Use Inbox to quickly capture these ideas and store them for later reference. Inbox is only a tap away from your home screen, so it’s an easy routine to adopt: think, tap, type, tada!
Notes: never forget the specifics.
A lot of people and talk: meetings are the cauldrons of any business, where big ideas regularly meet small to-dos. Take CloudTasks with you to the next one and get into the habit of storing background information in notes, along with your tasks. This way, when you come to start on a project, you’ve got all the wishes and requirements of your team or boss right there at your fingertips. Never forget the specifics again, and give your productivity a healthy boost
Reminders: your personal coach.
Reminders are a staple of habit forming. CloudTasks allows you to assign a due date and time to any task, and when the time comes around you’ll get a handy notification as a reminder. Whether it’s to do your taxes or drink some more water, this feature is invaluable in keeping you on top of a new routine.
Recurring tasks: think less, do more.
Recurring tasks automatically pop up in your ‘Today’ list at a specified time, so you always know what’s up next on any given day. Similar to reminders, they keep you on top of new routines – both regular and irregular – without the need to input them over and over again. You can set tasks to recur daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly, at even or random intervals.
CloudCal integration: make time for your tasks.
If there’s one thing we all need to help form habits, it’s time. But how can you get an easy overview of your availability, so you know when you can slot in your next habit-forming action? CloudTasks seamlessly integrates with CloudCal, a calendar app that shows the hours you’re free with a quick glance, so you never miss an opportunity to be more productive. Like CloudTasks, it’s available free on the Google Play Store.
And that's it! Do you use CloudTasks in any other interesting ways? Have you accomplished something great with it recently? We'd love to know.
