We’re all busy with client work, family things to do, and managing our lives on and off-line.

I’m using Wunderlist as a to-do list.  I use this as a primary way to organize tasks for clients that are tactical in nature.  

I’ve tried many of these types of platforms and even rely on a Moleskine journals to keep track of things, take notes the old fashion way.

Yes, they are over priced and expensive when an ordinary tablet you can buy at OfficeMax will do, but when I am using Moleskines, I tend to take the note taking as an art, rather than a task oriented process.  I buy mine here on Amazon.

But Wait – My To-Do LIst Overwhelming Me.

Even with the elegance and simplicity of Wunderlist, I just started to try GoalStacker.

Amidst a massive to do list, GoalStacker makes me focus on what has to get done today.

Not tomorrow.  

Not pending.  

Not in the future.  

As in today.  

Oh – And Place A Place For Notes… 

My favorite App for notekeeping – not note taking – is Evernote.  To me the tasks and processes are very different. When I am taking notes, these are just reminders of what I hear.  And when I really want to capture what I hear and possibly transcribe later, I use the

  3. I, too, keep a printed and electronic “To Do” list. I haven’t tried Wunderlist, but I will. I’m with Shawn, too, on Basecamp. I’m a huge fan since using it for TEDxSanAntonio. I’m also with you on the nice journals. I have a leather-bound list I keep, and i does turn it into more of an art form and less of a task. Thanks for the info, Alan!

  7. I think the real trick to all of this is just sticking to a routine, following up and getting things done.
