I’ve spent a good deal of the last couple days fiddling around with two list applications (they’re both Air apps). The first one, MiniTask takes (as the name suggests) a minimalist approach to task lists. The second one, Simple Tasks V2 is much more complex and has a few of the features that I think would be useful in MiniTask. However Simple Tasks doesn’t appear to be in development anymore, and also unfortunately quite buggy (tasks don’t save sometimes, which kinda defeats the purpose).
The irony of all this is that instead of getting the things done on my list (which is currently just a basic text formatted list in an Outlook task item) I’ve been searching for the perfect way to store my to-do’s. Talk about procrastinating!!
So how do you go about actually getting things on your list done? Is it the way you break the lists down, or organise them, or only have three things in there at once, or plan your day to tackle items x, y and z…?
I’ve even got Getting Things Done on my bookshelf at the moment, but wouldn’t you know it I’ve been procrastinating about reading that too!!!
There’s actually an items on one of my lists (yes I’ve got more than one) to create a time management app. And you guessed it, that hasn’t been crossed off the list yet either.
