Advanced planning…

I picked up a 2015 year planner for my Filofax while in Selfridges yesterday. I’ve been working on some big, long-term projects (more on that in a few months) lately, and I’ve noticed that looking at the year on a single sheet of paper is actually more helpful than on screen.

What I’ve heard so far about the app is positive. A new forecast view of commitments by timeline Introduction of review mode, just like […]

GTD on the iPad

For those of you not steeped in the intricacies of the GTD craze, it stands for “Gettings Things Done”. It’s basically an approach to help you be more productive and less forgetful and it is set out in all its glory in the original book by David Allen. One of the core elements of any […]

Remember…everything!

I’ve been a fan of online to-do list generator “Remember the Milk” for some time. However, I found myself printing off the weekly schedule for when I was going to be away froma computer, and then inevitably, losing it or leaving it at home. I wanted mobile online access to the service and now my […]
