Even the most unorganized individuals can not escape the inevitably of having to jot down a few bullet points of tasks that need completed. Since To-Do lists are the ‘backbone’ of organization, I figure this is the best place to start. So if a crumbled napkin has lost it’s appeal, I invite you to check out what technology has to offer.
For those individuals looking strictly for a computer based task management system, I have a few freebies for your fancy.
The site uses Steve Covey’s Seven Habits of Effective People frame-work.
I appreciate the Goals/Roles/Vision section. Weekplan might scare off someone new to task managment with it’s long term planning aspects, and like Covey’s writings you cannot go wrong with using it.
Looking for a ‘sexy and simple’ to do list?
TeuxDeux.com allows you to ‘cross-off’, drag and drop your tasks and look good doing it.
"I want to use my cell phone and PC to manage tasks"
For those who have a Smartphone and are looking for a single solution, you’re in luck. There are choices.
Google Tasks is available in standard web format, mobile web format, and as a widget for IGoogle.
Although there is no official Google app for Tasks (yet),the Android Market offers GTasks, a free, ad’less, sync/streamlined solution to managing your Google tasks on the go.
Do It Tomorrow
A recent edition to the ‘to-do list’ scene and I must say I appreciate the interface’s attempt to mirror the old pen/paper techniques.
Smartphone app syncs with website nicely, and it’s very initiative easy to use.
For the readers out there who begin their ‘technology using change’ with adopting one of the following tools for your to-do lists, congratulations.
Welcome to the e-side!
