Do you know what you have to do?

It seems lately as if I’ve got a million different things to do, and not enough time to do half of it. I’ve tried using the tasks in Apple mail to keep track of my to-do list, but quite honestly, the program just doesn’t work that good for a task manager. Not enough options, and not an easy way to sort or categorize them. I’m simply not getting things done.

I’ve said for a long time now, that the one killer app that Google is missing is a great task manager. One that would sit inside of Google Mail and Google Calendar. One that could even sync up with you mobile phone. And even though I’ve given up on Google to come up with one, I finally found an app that does everything I want and more. Remember the Milk is a great task manager that gives you many different ways to track you tasks. You can check you to-do list from anywhere on the web, you can check and sync it from your phone, and you can even embed it in all of your Google products. From gmail to google calendar to igoogle to ical, Remember the Milk ties in seamlessly with all your apps. It also lets you create different lists, tag tasks, add notes, and set priorities. I’ve been using it for about a week now and it ties in perfectly with what I’m doing. And did I mention that its free? I’m a sucker for free web apps and this is one that I highly recommend.

At Catalyst, I think it was Jim Collins who recommended that we start a “not to-do” list. For everything you put on your to-do list, you need to put something on your not to-do list. I need to figure out how to set that up now. Although, if you’re not doing it, when do you check off that you’ve not done it? Just a question.
