How The Arena App Can Help You Win the Day
If you’ve been following our blog, you may feel like we are a little harsh when it comes to Post-It® notes. While they have their benefits (quick notes, reminders, etc.), they are not great at keeping track of your schedule or your to-do list. The Arena App can help you fill in the gaps left by that Post-It® you lost with the details of your meeting. Keep reading for some tips on how Arena can help you win the day.
Enter Your Projects for the Day
The Arena App is designed with the day-to-day in mind: users enter in their tasks, projects, meetings, etc., every day, which allows you to know what needs to be done today to ensure the most impactful outcome. Arena also offers a calendar view, which lays your projects for the day over your calendar. This helps you visualize the time you have available for your tasks, which leads to a better sense of what needs to be completed first.
Assign Your Project Impacts
When entering your tasks for the day, The Arena App lets you decide if you Must, Should, or Could work on it today. Projects default to the Should distinction so that users don’t feel like they must do everything today. The focus is on what you know needs to be completed versus what you would like to complete today. Once you choose this, you are also able to decide what level of importance a project has, in terms of effort and impact. You can decide these based on what you know you need to do, though some users assign a higher value to projects they don’t want to do as a way to motivate themselves.
The Arena App also includes several features that can help you when you are stuck on a project. The timer feature is built in for when you need to focus on a project, but find yourself struggling to do so. It is designed so that the user can choose however much – or little – time is needed, and just get to work. You’ll be amazed at what you can accomplish when you remove your outside distractions!
Another feature included in Arena is multiple project checklists, which are both pre-built and self-curated. You can easily add them to a task when entering it in, and the list will appear when you open the task bubble. Arena even tracks your progress on the outside of your bubbles as you check off the boxes, which helps with the overall feeling of getting things done.
Let Arena Help You
The Arena App is designed to help your day run as smoothly as possible. And while that might not always be in your control, you can easily get back on track with Arena. The appeal of this app is that it doesn’t tell you what to do; it helps you focus more on what you know you need to do, which allows you to be in control of your day. Let The Arena App help you win the day, and gain the peace of mind that you did everything you could in the time you had.
