work/life/tech/zen: Asana brings a little zen to tasks, projects and teams

We are constantly seeking the elusive “balance,” aren’t we? We want more “zen” in our work and our lives. I believe that thoughtful choices about the technology we use and how we use it can bring us closer to a flow that is less stressful, less overwhelming,  less confusing.

I’m starting a series of posts, online courses and podcasts to explore bringing more calm and clarity into our ultra connected and techno-driven lives. This is something I need to do for my own life. I hope you’ll join me on this journey.

Here’s the first post…


Teamwork without email. Asana puts conversations & tasks together, so you can get more done with less effort.

I’ve tried many project management, task management and people management applications. (To name a few: Basecamp, Wrike, 5pm, Many Moon which became which Salesforce bought and is now shutting down, Cohuman which became MindJet, Glasscubes).

I’m always hoping to find the application that works with my brain. Do you know what I mean?

Asana may hold the key. I recently started seeing tweets from very busy, productive people I know mentioning Asana as a great tool for managing tasks, projects and people. So I signed up, and so far, I’m not disappointed.

Like any productivity guidance system, you have to get into a good habit of using it, find your rhythm, but so far I find Asana to be intuitive with a good flow. Plus the application brings together information, conversations and files related to projects and tasks for good continuity.

Why use Asana?

If you’re managing multiple projects with tasks tied to it and also assigning tasks to team members, Asana will get you in the groove. Try Asana.
