26 Feb El mejor gestor de tareas para empresas o equipos dedicados al diseño y la comunicación gráfica

 

What makes the results between one and the other so different if we all have the same time, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year?
What are the knowledge, talents, habits or secrets kept by people who manage to be successful in their lives? Thousands of books have been written around these interesting questions and it is the fundamental topic in the field of personal productivity, a very broad topic that has many followers, including myself, but today it is not my intention to delve into it, today We are going to talk about the tools that I use and have used to manage my work time and that of my team.

How do I organize my working time today?

In my more than 20 years in this I have gone through different stages in which I have used different tools to organize my work time.

  • Paper diary.
  • Notebooks and sticky notes.
  • Software.
  • Software and paper agenda.

I currently use software and personalized agenda.
What is that of a personalized agenda? I use an agenda designed by me but mainly copied from my admired Cal Newport and others like Michael Hyatt or even Marcos Vazquez. From what they propose I have been adapting it to my own tastes and needs (I continue to make changes almost every month) and every month I print the pages I need that month. Every day I put the things that I have to do in their respective time blocks and I try to stick to them, which is impossible, so I move the blocks trying to at least not leave the tasks that I have considered the most important for that day. At the end of the day I review how it went and re-arrange the tasks for the next day.

On the other hand, all my projects and their respective associated tasks are organized in an application called ClickUp.
I’ve tried many apps but these are the ones I’ve used long enough to get to know them well.

The evolution of work, task or project managers, whatever you want to call it, is exciting, its evolution is amazing and the number of new players is overwhelming. ClickUp is one of these that stood out from the beginning and has managed to get close to the podium in record time.

Why did we switch from Asana to ClickUp?

Asana seems to me to be a very good option, it is very well designed and quite intuitive, the completely free version is perfectly suited to manage personal work and even that of a team, but this is when you begin to see very useful or interesting options that you become of the paid version. We were with the free version for almost 5 years but the day came when we started to really miss some of the paid options. Before I started paying, I did a study of the applications available in the market and came to the conclusion that Asana was too expensive for what it offered in its paid versions and after much study and testing (I tried Monday, Jira, Notion, Wrike…) and almost going crazy ended up paying for ClickUp in its business version.

Price
What made me change was mainly the price, what it offers is far superior to Asana in terms of value for money.

Views
But you also have quite a few more options overall. It is more “customizable” and spaces adapted to the different parts of the company can be designed with its particular hierarchy of Spaces, Lists and Tasks and with the different views to deal with them. List, board, calendar, table, gant, workflow… and many more.

In Asana I was sorely missing this! In ClickUp, apart from managing tasks, you can also store information for simple consultation, in addition to having very good options for block content clearly copied from Notion, which is what we used for this purpose until then.

Mindmaps
I was pleasantly surprised by this, I love mindmaps and I thought it was great that it is built right into the project management app itself.

What was missing from ClickUp that we had in Asana?

At first ClickUp seemed much more confusing to us, and it is in that it has many more options and it was quite difficult for us to adapt, but in return it made us learn much more about methodologies that we did not know.

It shows that Asana is more mature, it’s better designed, it’s simpler and they think about it a lot before incorporating changes, ClickUp is more dynamic and they are constantly changing things and some of them are still in need of better finishes.
