Great tools which help thinking

Being in school, university or similar there are always some mid-term goals we’re trying to reach. When we finally finish and start our working life there is suddenly little time to think about life and goals. We might find ourself so distracted by daily life that it gets challenging to find and follow our goals. I’m collecting tools which help me to “manage thoughts”:

  • – relativ simple cloud notepad tool, allows structured lists, great for managing thoughts on different matters which follow you throughout your life
  • – one of many Kanban-style task managing tools, O.K. for to-dos
    *update*: one of my current challenges is to use Trello for everything. In order do keep it clean I am using it smarter than in the beginning. It already boosted my free-time productivity a lot. I might update this post with examples some time.
  • – incredible minimalistic and beautiful mind-mapping tool, great for “thinking”
    *update*: I stopped using this tool after a short time but might give it a 2nd go some time
Great sources for "short" entertainment and motivating "news"

  1. I found out that I love to spend some time in the evening for my thoughts.
    And that therefore I mustn’t do too much in the evening.
    That way I feel like when I’m travelling… very inspiring new experience during my daily life!
