This year, I made productivity, integrity and accountability as a few of new year’s resolutions.  Not necessarily goals or objectives I needed to accomplish, but values I wanted to uphold in all parts of my life.

But then Netflix happened. In Cambodia.

And it is what I spent a considerable portion of my weekend doing. Specifically binging through The Mind of a Chef.

So enter TeuxDeux.  This is the app that’s going to keep me in line this year.  For me, one of the biggest challenges of entering a creative career is self doubt.  The fear eats me up and I wind up finding other things to do (read: baking green things) rather than accomplishing the tasks that will actually help me move forward.

Created by the design maven cum serial entrepreneur, Tina Roth Eisenberg (aka Swiss Miss), Teux Deux is the solution to all of my productivity slumps (I’m looking at you, 2-4pm).  It builds upon other productivity apps I’ve tried and failed at because it absolutely feeds into my competition loving self since I can see my productivity stats.  And it’s simple and pretty in the way that a Swiss designer would (and the colours are absolutely customizable).

I get to see what I have done, what I’ve still got to do, and clicking on a completed task and seeing it dissolve into the grey is just so satisfying.  This is what I’m up to today (yes, I’m a meal planner)!

I’ve gotta go finish my list, whilst this orchestral ditty (by Arcade Fire violin maven, Sarah Neufeld) plays in the background. Happy Monday!
