This is just for fun: try using Asana (personal workspace) to map out your next day-trip somewhere. I did this last summer for a 1-day tour of Washington D.C. that I led, with a group from Brazil. Each activity was a Task for the day, so as we did things I would Complete the task and it would fall off the list.
Some of the PROs of using Asana in this way:
- It is easy to drag and drop activities. So if we ran late on the Supreme Court stop and had to move the Washington Monument stop to after lunch, I could just drag that step down and still have my itinerary be accurate
- I was able to attach all sorts of materials leading up to the trip. So in the project I attached PDFs for the bus route map, my digital parking pass, email confirmations, etc. If they had to do with a specific task I would put them there, but some things I just put in the Conversation area of the Project
- Because you can clone Projects, it makes it easy if you ever take the same trip and want to follow the same general plan
TIP: Put a time in parentheses on the Task line for quick and easy reference to keep you on track.
Example: “Walk to Union Station (12:00pm)” or “Have Lunch at Union Station (12:30pm)”
And of course you could easily modify this for longer trips using Sections as day breakdowns. So many possibilities!
