I knew about the TODOIST app and even had it installed on my devices, but, never really took the app seriously. Until now. As someone who has multiple projects, daily tasks, and is addicted to creating a to-do-list, even though they have ben proven inefficient, the TODOIST app is proving to be a game changer in project and task management. But because of its complexity it really needs a simple-to-follow guidebook to navigate people through all of the functions.

This is where the MASTER TODOIST bo

I started using Todoist a few months ago and have found it useful. Useful, but not perfect. Sadly, I believe there isn’t a ‘perfect’ to do list manager in existence. The trick is to find one that matches the closest to how I manage my world. Todoist is the one I am working with at the moment.

I thought I would get some help, so I bought Master Todoist. It was very helpful in understanding the basics quickly. Where I really found the value was in the back of the book. Scott really knows his Todoi

I was watching a podcast one day and the guy was prattling along and then he said something like he needed to add into his to do list, all the steps and stages that he needed to complete to self publish his book. I thought he’d stop filming and load all that in, but instead he pressed like three clicks and voila… the entire list was loaded in. WHAT APP WAS THAT? I demanded… it turned out to be todoist, not todolist. My bad.
And then, like a lot of things, I forgot about it. Until I saw it mention

This is an affordable, quick read to give users a starting point for setting up and operating a practical Todoist environment.

It starts with a walk through of the core features. As an existing user I moved through this pretty quickly. The projects, labels/filters, and review sections were more useful and I've updated my setup to take advantage of a number of these suggestions, which were compatible with how I was already operating.

This book was published nearly three years ago. While the UI and

Master Todoist is a 3rd party guide on how to use the to-do app Todoist technically and how it should be used to improve productivity/self-organization. I have used Todoist before some periods but haven't got the habit stuck.

The book is very quick read and technical parts were maybe even too detailed for mee (I know already where everything is). I got a few tips on how to organize tasks, what kind of tasks should I create, how to prioritize tasks and how to keep the task list organized.

Great tips on how to use the app/website Todoist. I've been using Todoist for several weeks and I still learned some new things with regards to how to use Filters and other features. Also I learned some interesting ways to organize tasks, like by energy level.

I would add Alexa integration to this book, since that is one of the primary ways I use Todoist. It seems to cover every other integration, though.

Pretty good at explaining everything, and even offered some advanced tips. On the other hand, the one thing I kept thinking was this: Why not just make it a long blog post? Although I can't verify it, I'm almost certain I've read some Wait But Why posts that are longer than this.

All in all, I recommend it to someone looking for an introduction to Todoist, but you can probably find the same content for free online somewhere.

The book is ok, it could be a lot smaller imo. It's needed to be said that author comprehensively touched every aspect of this tool. By reading this book, I'm now sure, that I know advanced techniques of Todoist which are helping me on a daily basis. What's most important - the reason every person could reach for this book is to gain effectiveness in getting things done and I feel this book helps in that. ...more

I decided to read this book to se do I really master Todoist. I have been using the app for years now and tried different methods to boost productivity. This book confirmed my hunch: I do master Todoist. No new things to learn, on the contrary, I don't want to label everything or concentrate on "big" tasks. Todoist is a lifesaver for me and this book is useful for those who are still starting to use it. A-okay book, but not for me this time. ...more

Excellent tutorial to get my behind in gear to start using this app to increase my productivity and overall planning & awareness of what I want of in life.

I'm a big SJ Scott fan. His topics inspire me in an area that doesn't come naturally to me. I already feel like this book is changing my life for the better.

Really good overview of Todoist

There are so many links to keep you engaged in all the aspects of Todoist. The author makes liberal use of the IFTTT links and I am grateful for that. As a user of Todoist for a couple of years now, there were some secrets and tricks that I was not aware of.

Great book

I learned so much from this book even though I am a Grand Master at todoist. I hadn't used labels or filters and I hadn't linked with other applications so was doubling up on some tasks or relying on multiple products to organise my life. I do find Google Keep useful as well which is one product not mentioned in the book.

Like mining for gold

I have used ToDoist for a bit know, so, I knew quite a bit of information already. However, I found lots of small nuggets. Most useful to me was the template for projects done often. Love the tips that helped to remove other apps and use just a core group.

Great informative book.

Very basic

As a long term todoist user I can not say I got much new information or specific ways to use it as an overall system to set and achieve goals. But maybe I was just expecting too much. Great read for those new to the system, and I wholeheartedly support the authors endorsement of using todoist to organise your entire life. It's awesome.

Excellent intro to Todoist with practical suggestions

I enjoyed the book's laid-back tone with a little bit of stern reality thrown in. I have an excellent idea of how to use Todoist with some practical examples to start me off. These suggestions may or may not work for me but as the author says, I'm committing to using Todoist and embracing what I learn as I build the habit.
Oct 22, 2017 rated it it was amazing
Simple and straightforward. It helped me implement many decisions and habits I've been developing. But seems to be also helpful to learn and start with some of those. It closely follows the "Getting Things Done" model. I've made my project and daily planning more efficient, so I could use space and time of my journaling sessions to write and reflect more. Thank you! ...more

Good intro book

This book is good for those who have never used the app before. As an advanced user, I still enjoyed the book because I learned a few things that I will incorporate now. I do think it's helpful if the reader is familiar with planning in general.

Is a brief overview that will tell you basics for gtd

If you want a really short overview this is it, but very little depth. Mostly this is an expanded list of features and 3rd party tools and processes.

Good ideas for beginners

Steve's book does a very good job explaining an easy to follow workflow for getting the most out of Todoist along with some great advice for utilizing third party applications to make our even more powerful.

This brief, clear, fun book made a Todoist addict of me. Todoist is the most amazing organizing app I've ever encountered. While simple on the outside and easy to get started with, it contains many powerful "hooks" for organizing tasks and projects by date, priority, projects, labels and filters. This book was just the kick-start I needed to immediately begin using its many features. ...more

Get Started with Todoist

Great, short book to get you started with Todoist. The book gives you plenty of ideas on how to best use this tool to get control of your to do list. If you are looking for a jumpstart with this app, the book should be very helpful, but don't expect an in-depth review of the app.
