Choosing the right tools for your process

As I mentioned last time, don't choose a tool that doesn't fit your flow. What does that mean? Here's an example: I thought I'd be clever and create a separate flow for home and work. Since I work at home, the thinking was that I'd further separate my two worlds with two systems. In one corner I had The Hit List syncing to iCal which in turn was syncing with Todo on my iPhone. In the other...

Your very own personal assistant

Having a personal assistant is great. If you need a cup of tea, your dry cleaning done or someone to walk the dog simply send your personal assistant out to do those things. If you lack the finances to retain the services of a personal assistant you can get one for free from macscheduler. Unfortunately, Scheduler for Mac will not get get you a cup of tea or any of the other stuff that a real live...

Taskpaper - dead simple task management

With the vast number of task management applications that are available, particularly for the Mac, you'd think that every possible feature has been done in a to-do list program. But maybe that's part of the problem. These programs are so feature-rich, that they end up getting in the way of actually getting things done, which is their purpose in the first place. Jesse Grosjean thinks so, which is...

SimpleGTD adds Project views, becomes contender

We first looked at SimpleGTD back in June, and concluded that although it had a lot going for it, it lacked of the ability to view your action items by the Project they're assigned to. That one missing feature was the only thing that prevented us from recommending it wholeheartedly, since there really is a lot to like about SimpleGTD. Fast-forward a month and a half, and we're in the pleasant...

Remember the Milk adds Twitter support for creating and managing tasks

In a day and age where everything from YouTube to Pownce are vying for both our free and shouldn't-be-free time, it's great to see a company like Remember the Milk figuring out an ingenious way to help keep our daily tasks organized while we're goofing off or micro-blogging with Twitter. On the company's blog today, RTM announced not only that they have a Twitter account of their own, but that you...

SimpleGTD - maybe too simple?

SimpleGTD is another in long list of online task management tools that attempt to adhere to David Allen's Getting Things Done system. On the surface, it's incredibly appealing; the makers of SimpleGTD have used Ruby on Rails to create a system that is stripped of the extraneous gunk that seems to litter other GTD tools, and instead present an incredibly bare-bones GTD environment. For those of you...

iGTD - Getting Things Done on a Mac

It seems there's more Getting Things Done inspired software packages out there than there are Flash games littering the web. It's understandable; GTD has become the geek mantra for productivity, and finding the right tool to suit your GTD needs is like searching for the holy grail. For Mac users, that holy grail may be iGTD. iGTD is a free Mac program that pulls from all of the GTD principles to...

MindManager 7 set for May 30 release

Mindjet, the folks behind the slick productivity tool MindManager, announced today that MindManager 7 hits the shelves on May 30. Whether you're planning your ten-year old's birthday party or your next corporate takeover, there are always a zillion details to attend to. Some folks find it easier to organize and visualize things by getting them down on paper (or pixels, as it were), and opt for...

ThinkingRock - cross-platform GTD application

While many other task management applications have found ways to incorporate the ideas put forth by the Getting Things Done methodology that David Allen developed, it seems that very few have been built from the ground up as GTD applications. There are certainly a few web applications that can make that claim, but in terms of "offline" applications, the pickings are pretty slim. One such...

Getting Things Done with Nozbe

It seems like there is another Getting Things Done related task manager popping up online almost every week. The latest to surface is one called Nozbe, which reminds me in some ways of Tracks, although it takes a very different approach to the design and workflow. Anyone that is familiar with the GTD methodology will be comfortable with the concepts used in Nozbe; you create Contexts, Projects,...

Jello.Dashboard - a GTD dashboard for Outlook

I'm not sure how this one has flown under the radar for so long! There's a Getting Things Done solution that I wasn't aware of until just recently, and having taken the time to implement it I have only one thing to say: I'm in love! Outlook has had the ability to use alternative "dashboards" (basically just web pages encoded to work with Outlook data) since Outlook 97 - that's a full ten years...

Tracks - GTD application on Rails

In my ongoing search for the ultimate software system for use with the Getting Things Done methodology, I've recently come across a real winner. Tracks is a web application that was built from the ground up for the purposes of implementing a GTD system. Written in Ruby on Rails, Tracks offers the familiar Projects and Contexts organization system made popular by David Allen's Getting Things Done...

What To Do Next - local web app

Lifehacker brings us a nugget from Davo, one of their avid readers, called What To Do Next. The idea behind the little application is extremely simple; it's written in javascript, and therefore will run on any platform. All it does is act as a front-end to a list of tasks that you would like to accomplish. Clicking on the button for one of the tasks starts a ten minute countdown timer (the time is...

Online productivity suite Scrybe released in phased beta

You remember the video, right? I got my wish. Eleven days ago I posted about a new online productivity suite that I was dying to try. Well it's late on Halloween evening, and I've just spent the last hour playing with the various features in Scrybe that enticed me when I first saw the demo video. And so far, I think we have a winner on our hands. After playing around with the user interface for a...
