I have tried many of the time management systems out there over the years. I gave up on all of them, usually because I was finding it took me too long to learn them and to maintain them.

What I want a time management system to do easily is to maintain a list of all my tasks and projects, prioritise them, and keep them on track. I also want to know at a glance what I have to do now, and next. Oh – and not miss anything or forget anything.

I just love testing out new tools: or getting to the point of realising where I am wasting time every day and then Googling to see who else has had that problem and how they solved it. I do have to be strong, though, and ration the amount of time I let myself spend on this stuff. Or I’d be on it all day! πŸ™‚
