If you haven’t mastered the art of getting things done, it’s no wonder you aren’t more successful. Being productive is one of the biggest struggles we face. It’s all too easy to let the most important things go undone. Days turn into months and months into decades. If you’re not careful, you can live your entire life and never do more than just survive. So what can you do?
Here are a few tools to help you take control of your busy schedule:
Get it done (www.getitdoneapp.com). Basic features and functions for tracking tasks. What makes it special is how it integrates with Evernotes and imports your notes so you can turn ideas into finished tasks.
Google tasks (www.gmail.com/tasks). One of the least versatile task-tracking applications on the web, but it does integrate nicely with their online calendar. And it’s from Google.
HiTask (www.hitask.com). This simple and easy-to-use platform has plugins for just about any browser and mobile apps. Not overly sexy, but extremely useful.
Nirvana (www.nirvanahq.com). A good-looking web application that allows you to track projects and assign tasks to key team members. Allows you to add contexts and tags to each project.
Nozbe (www.nozbe.com). This tool takes execution seriously. A nice looking set of tools at a great price, all geared toward helping you manage complex tasks.
Orchestra (www.orchestra.com). The coolest-looking task app ever. Part instant messaging, part to-do list. It replaces your email as the key way of communicating.
