Hi, what to-do-list do you use for your daily work?

I need a software based to-do-list app and not a web based. What do you recommend? It would be good if it's free. :p

Also how do you stay constantly focused on your work? I kinda have this tendency to check forum, fb, youtube in the middle of work. No matter how much I try to concentrate, I will check mails, forum, fb, youtube every after 30 mins. How do I stop it? Any way to track the time invested into work per day?

Following up and on the same question.
I have used a lot of techniques but could not adopt them properly!

I've used Todoist for the last few months, it's good enough for me. Software based and free.

I'd never used a to-do list before, productivity easily doubled.

Notes on iPhone are doing great for me, it's not about the app, it's about your mindset

I swapped from todolist to Trello. I find it much easier to keep track of longer-term stuff but for the daily day to day I think better with a pen and paper.

If you are looking something digitally I would recommend "Google Keep". You can use Google Keep on computer and mobile device (both iOS and Android). Since it is on the internet, you can check your to-do list on pc or phone on your way.

What is personally do to keep myself focused towards my goal is I write my next day's to do list before I go off to sleep. As and when I complete the tasks, I strike off it. Writing your tasks will make you remember things and striking off by your own hand will give you self satisfaction.

After trying lot's of apps aka websites for project management and To-list both, now I am stick with "Google Keep". The simplicity of Google Keep is the best thing that amazed me always. The keep is in all possible versions like, web, android and iPhone. Even if your smartphone is not connected with Internet you can use the apps and it will sync smoothly in background. ( Believe, I never noticed when the app synced and I know it's always).

My Todo_list.txt inside Dropbox finished more tasks than my Todoist app

I personally use Microsoft To-Do for managing my tasks.
It's a pretty simple application, but it got all the features I need. It is integrated in Microsoft Outlook, but there's also a standalone application available in the Microsoft store (W10 only tho)

Regarding avoiding distraction:
Installing a productivity extension in my browser helped me a lot whenever I had to get stuff done.
I probably wouldn't have gotten my bachelors degree without this one :D
