Everyone has their own way to keep up. For me, a simple pen-and-paper list is the most effective way to stay on track with tasks at work. Some other folks I know swear by apps. But whatever the medium for their professional to-do list, it seems like people rarely give the same weight to personal tasks at home. I'm not talking about the stuff you have to do (make bed, empty dishwasher), but the stuff you love to do.
