The Time Management Series: Three Tools To Make Life Easier

I am constantly looking for ways to improve my time management, the way in which I do things.  One would laugh at how many “systems” I have tried, how many tools and applications I have tried.  Today, I want to share with you the three tools that have made my life easier.

  1. Remember the Milk – Remember the Milk has been around since August 2004, and I have tried it a couple of times now.  Recently, I am working with it in connection with my new Droid phone.  Also exciting is RTM’s integration with Gmail and Google Calendar.  Since I use these daily, RTM is fitting into my workflow for now.
  2. Evernote – Evernote is like an online notebook.  With Evernote, you can make notes, save pictures, even save web clippings.  I have used Evernote a few times, and really love the ability to save things directly from the web.  For me, it’s worked especially well for inspiration pieces that I find while surfing the web.  Evernote also has the ability to sort, organize, and search your notes.
  3. To —>Done – To —>Done is a new one to me, but I was immediately intrigued by the uniqueness of the idea.  With To —>Done, you enter the tasks you have to do, along with the amount of time you think it will take you to complete the task.  Then, when you have some time to get something done, you tell To —>Done how much time you have, and it will give you a task from your list that fits the amount of time you have.  This is a great idea for people like me who are super indecisive and have trouble figuring out what task to do first.

Those are three tools I am using now?  What tools are you using?  What would you add to the list?  Let me know in the comments below!

    I started using evernote a couple of months. I don't think I am utilizing its full potential, but I do like it. I use it for all of the digi sites that I find when I am blog hopping, but don't have time to read it all. I also use it for digi supplies that I would like to go back and get. I am also make note of things that I want, and that the kids want, so when people ask at holidays/birthdays I am prepared. 🙂

    Have you checked out Evernote Trunk? It's like a collection of apps and add ons for Evernote. It's pretty cool.
