Toodledo beats Doit.im for now

I’ve been using Toodledo for years now as my task management app.  Recently, I had a “crisis of faith” that made me go rooting around inside a number of other task management apps ranging from Any.Do to IQTELL.  I ended up trying to us Doit.im for a while, but I just couldn’t find a way to make it work for me.

A scree (or manifesto) about Google integration

Hey, Google!  Why haven’t you integrated your basic user tools yet?

My new sabbatical task schedule

In my last post, I explained why I feel I'm not getting enough out of my sabbatical, productivity-wise. As it happens, I had the time today to sort out a new schedule, which I summarize here.

Reacting to tasks just isn't working for me
