You can try Asana - it has excellent integration of both professional and personal tasks with the ability to set repeat tasks for routines (e.g. clear your inbox every two days, have a haircut every two weeks etc).

Use the principle of Dramatic Visible Results. (This is a fun way to refer to the principle of "measurable progress", which is essential to effective change management.) How it works: Decide on something you want to do. Then before starting, set a goal -- one that is measurable enough that you can know when it is complete. For some projects, it may be ...

GTD itself does not classify tasks by Urgency and Importance - that lifehacker article proposes the old urgency/importance matrix as an alternative to GTD. In GTD, urgency and importance are considered when selecting which action to do, but only after considering context, time available, and energy. You only consider it in the moment of deciding, you don't ...

I keep encountering this question on different forums, and to me it's often the wrong question. I have the tendency to think this way as well: "What tools should I be using so I can be super super organised?" But in reality, it's often the discipline, not the tools, that needs to be addressed. The most genuinely organised person I've ever known was a ...

IMDO it's not the toolset but the mental approach that works. The GTD Book and Audio Tapes really help with this; there's not real substitute for reviewing them every year or so. Concepts such as the weekly review, and breaking tasks down to 'pushing widgets' are the only things that really work. I've been through every type of todo management app out ...

I use a constellation of apps as my system, email, calendar and to do apps. There are a couple of practices that keep these systems from going stale. Set up some back burner categories These usually go by the name of @somedayMaybe, @waitingFor, @moviesToSee, @thingsToDoWhenInTheCity, etc. You will only review these lists when you are in the mindset of ...

You can compare softwares in this link: Comparison of notetaking software I suggest to you use google keep Browser: Mobile app: I suggest you to use google keep because: 1. Simple 2. MultiPlatform (Android, Chrome extension, browser based) 3. Integrate with ...

TL;DR: Don't use Evernote as a to-do tool. I find Evernote to be a great place for reference material, but not for actual to-do lists that frequently change. For that, I use a mix of two other tools instead: workflowy.com is the most fantastic outliner I've ever seen. It's minimalistic in appearance but packs the perfect amount of functionality in a very ...

Evernote, is more than just a TODO list. For instance you can have two stacks in Evernote TODO DONE You can add a note to "TODO" set a reminder to get reminded (Recurring reminders are not there so you will have to manually set if you forget it once). Once you have completed the task, you can move it a done stack and proceed with the next item on your ...

Try them all, it's the only way to figure out what fits your needs. Personally I tried a lot of different note, task, calendar, scheduler programs. After months of fooling around I found a simple text document worked best for me (notepad++ and markdown) Full disclosure; I am bias to plain text.

Work with whatever tool suits you best. I use TSW with Evernote, but I don't follow it precisely. As your workflow matures and changes, your GTD tools will also mature and/or change. If Trello works best for you now, then use it. It doesn't have to be the end-all be-all for you for the rest of your schooling, career or life!

As the answer is individual, do this: In the beginning of the day, or the night before, select a number of daily tasks you think is good for you. Write down as many tasks as you've decided. Go ahead and dedicate your day to achieving these goals. In the end of the day, review how happy are you with your productivity and how many/much of the tasks you've ...
