    GTD in Your PKM – Track Everything

    I recently got asked how I use Obsidian alongside all the project management and task tools I must have. In any given week I have things to do coming in via Trello, Github Issues, email and Things 3. Many of these items may also have a related Slack conversation, or notes I have taken in […]

    This is NOT a complete review of Things 3

    While I’ve been reliant on paper based productivity for a while now, there is something about a digital task manager that still seems useful to me during times that my business is ramping up in complexity.

  • EasyTask Review: If Only

    Recently I reviewed The Hit List and while it is a great application I found a number of areas that gave me pause in using it long term. Since then I’ve been using EasyTask which appealed because of it’s cross-platform nature and the offsite sync, not to mention the price which includes versions for both…

  • Review of The Hit List: It came with a Bundle

    In Episode 2 @iKitty mentioned that she was using Things as a GTD/TODO app based on a recommendation from me. I used to use Things as my choice for quite a while but have now switched over to The Hit List and thought I’d give you a run down of the features. While this started…
