If one browses the web searching for ways of boosting productivity, one will no doubt come across a relatively new phenomenon called Bullet Journaling. More casually referred to as ‘BuJo’, its creator, Ryder Carroll, proposes that it is a ‘customizable and forgiving organization system [that] can be your to-do list, sketchbook, notebook, and diary, but most likely, it will be all of the above.’
So, how does it work?
In line with the findings of the renowned neuroscientist Daniel Levitin, in his book entitled; ‘The organized mind: Thinking straight in the age of information overload’, the ‘BuJo’ maintains that as a species we are inherently unable to successfully multitask. Although we may be in the process of undertaking one task, our mind will – either consciously or subconsciously – shift its focus towards a different, incomplete task. Therefore, Levitin suggests that the ideal way of preventing this from happening, is to write down any incomplete tasks into an ‘external brain’, such as in a Bullet Journal, a to do list, a mobile app, or even better, a to do list mobile app, such as Gluru.
As the smartest to do list app to date, Gluru enables you to not only manually input your tasks and to do’s easily into your personal schedule, but it also automatically identifies them from within the content of your inbound emails. Due to its unique approach to artificial intelligence (AI), our productivity-boosting app combines natural language processing (NLP) and deep learning (DL) to identify the actionable phrases from within your emails while automatically surfacing them to you. This enables you to either respond to them immediately with one click or schedule them as a to do for a later time/date.
As we are aware that many of you tend to be working on various projects all at once, or simply prefer to arrange your tasks by category, we have now made it significantly easier for you to do so by enabling the new ‘List’ feature. Similar to the ‘Rapid Logging’ system prescribed in the ‘BuJo’, through creating a ‘List’ and adding a task to it, you can organize your task and to do’s accordingly so that you can remain organised and on top of all that you need to accomplish for that day/week.
How do I access this awesome new feature? Well, it’s quite simple really…
In order to create a new list, all you need to do is to follow these four simple steps:
-Select the ‘Lists’ icon
-Select ‘Start a new list’
-Input the desired name of the list
Once you have created a new list, you are then able to easily assign any item to it. To do this:
-Select the email/task/event that you would like to add
-Below the title of the email/task/event, you will find the option to ‘Add to a list’. Select this
-Select the list that you would like to add it too.
You can even manually input a task into a specific list from within it:
-Select the list you would like to manually input a task into
-Select the ‘+’ icon
-Input the details of the task
-Select ‘Add’, and then specify the time/date that you would like to associate with it
If you have already downloaded Gluru, then you should be able to experience this new feature immediately. However, if you like what you have read and would like to try the app for yourself, then you can download it for free by clicking on either of the links below:
