New Favorite Thing: Workflowy!

Workflowy? What on earth is that?

Sounds funny, doesn’t it?

That’s exactly what I thought when my husband showed me a promotional video for Workflowy, a new, free, online way to (and I quote) “Organize Your Brain”. Workflowy allows you to create a list–a giant list–of everything you can possibly think of. It allows you to add as much information as you want, and also helps you search and tag your giant list so you can, well, organize your brain.

Some might say I’m the to-do list’s #1 fan, but even after watching some promotional videos, I hadn’t quite figured out a practical use for it in my life.

Until this morning.

I am working on an exhibit project with the Iowa Department for the Blind that has me drowning in amazing content, coming at me from all angles. I’ve been having trouble trying to figure out the best way to organize it so I can move to the next phase of the exhibit development process – creating a comprehensive outline of every aspect of the three exhibits.

Enter Workflowy.

Check it out!

I don’t know why I thought to try it this morning, but within two minutes, I was hooked. Finally, I had found an easy to use program that allowed me to organize all of my content,  and also easily limit what I’m working on so I don’t get overwhelmed.

If you are looking for a way to organize your research, projects, or pretty much anything, I highly recommend checking out Workflowy.

…or perhaps I should have kept it my little secret, to give me an edge over my competition?

Nah, I’m too nice.
