“There is the psychological discomfort knowing you should be doing something else. And we presume that balance is a good thing. When something is out of balance you can get quite innovative in your attempts to resolve that fact.”
I can’t remember the last time I forgot the milk, but I do remember the last time I neglected to attend to something on my to-do list.
Enter the web tool, Remember the Milk, an online task management system. Kevin Loker and Aram Zucker-Scharff, two people I follow on Twitter, recommended the tool after I asked. I needed something that would help manage both small and large scale web projects. I looked at Todoist, Google Tasks and Tasks within Microsoft Outlook. Remember the Milk seemed to be the most user friendly and flexible. It also helped that friends recommended it.
How I’m Using It
I created different to-do lists that correspond with folders in my email. The email folders contain the action items that I need to make web updates, like copy, photos and other information. So far, this has created a streamlined approach that works for me. Keep in mind, I’m not sharing my lists with anyone, and I have it set up as more of an individual task manager tool.
What I Like
- Its interface is simple and easy to use.
- The lists load quickly.
- The keyboard shortcuts make many things within the program faster.
- It’s free.
