Currently using Trello! You can share access if you want to but you don’t have to. They have a free version that works for me.

Trello!! It’s so easy to use and you can create your own system for organizing. It has checklists within tasks so you can get super granular with it! It’s kinda like JIRA but prettier. Teams also has something called Planner that works similarly. For quicker projects, I use Evernote’s checkbox feature to jot down tasks. Much better than paper to-do lists because I always check the lists again on Mondays of the following weeks to ensure I haven’t forgotten anything.

Is there a good way to avoid signing up for new major responsibilities at current role if you’re actively job searching / interviewing?

What's the bench policy in Mindtree. I've heard that they just give only 3 chances to clear client interview. Is that true ?

I am used to providing my client/PO with weekly status emails (CYA). However, this new client is telling me they’re not reading their emails and I should instead have weekly catch-ups with the BA? Will this impact my project review when the CAL goes to the PO for feedback/input? My goal with these emails was summarizing the tasks I have been doing over the week, so that the PO is aware of it.

Why won’t ethnic so called groups come together and be Human for the good of ALL? Study history and no one can play the slavery, discrimination, removal from homelands, genocide card! From the beginning every ethnic cultural group has suffered them all. I can tell you that having worked on a local and national project to bring these groups together it is the adults that reject unity in favor of their special interest. Not so true of our students who are more accepting.
