Apple Reminders for Personal Projects
Working on personal creative projects takes a good organization system. There are so many little details to keep track of. I have found a combination of Craft and Apple Reminders to help me stay on track. In this post, I’m going to focus on Apple Reminders. Reminders help me keep track of my website updates and social media posts and plan blog posts; staying organized can make a big difference.
One major advantage of Apple Reminders is that it’s completely free and easily accessible on all my Apple devices. This means I can easily manage my tasks from my iPhone, iPad, or Mac. Additionally, it syncs with iCloud, ensuring that tasks are always up-to-date no matter which device I’m using.
Another great feature of Apple Reminders is the ability to use folders and tags to break up projects. For example, creating a folder for website and social media posts and tag each task with “website” for easy access. Plus, it’s easy to set due dates to ensure no deadline is missed.
Of course, no tool is perfect, and Apple Reminders has limitations. It’s not as powerful as other project management tools like Todoist (though it’s getting close), and it’s not cross-platform, meaning it’s not ideal for anyone using both Apple and non-Apple devices. Since I’m all Apple, this is not an issue for me.
Despite these small drawbacks, Apple Reminders is incredibly useful for personal projects. Siri integration is great for when I’m driving or cooking. For example, when I have an idea, I can simply say, “Hey Siri, add work on the personal project blog post on Tuesday to the Website list,” and Siri will add it to your Reminders and remind me on the day I asked.
It’s easy to create widgets on devices to keep track of your tasks for the day easily. And if you do need more advanced features, you can always use an app like Fantastical to see your tasks in a list alongside all your calendar dates.
Overall, using Apple Reminders as a personal project manager is a great way to stay organized and productive. Give it a try and see how it can simplify your personal project management.
