About 9 months ago I discovered a fantastic new technology that's revolutionized the way I keep myself organized. I want to tell you about it.
For the last several years I've been on the hunt for a software or web application that could help me organize my ever growing and evolving task list. At various points I had used or tried all of these options: Remember the Milk, Google Tasks, Toodle-Do, a spreadsheet, HiTask, ... and more.
But then about June last year I tried something new. Something better than all of the options listed above.
Paper and pen.
Seriously. I've been using a notebook with paper and a pen with ink to track my tasks for over 9 months now. And I have been both surprised and pleased with the results. While the technological versions have a little more pizzazz, you just can't beat the adaptability of paper.
But an even bigger plus is this: If my task list is on a computer, I'm automatically drawn to check in on my email, calendar, favorite blogs, etc. My task list on paper just sits there, staring me down, reminding me I have something to work on.
Don't believe me? Give it a try!
