I've developed www.planzu.com with this scenario in mind. I too saw the need to express dependencies and found that existing applications did not adequately capture this even through sub tasking. Planzu has a brainstorm and outline feature that let's you build chains of dependencies in an outline structure. Each of these items can then be assigned to ...

If you like the Kanban as your productivity system there are some creative ways you can address the issues you are finding. Kanban works great for single action items, but when it comes to projects with many steps and daily repeating task (rituals) there can be some challenges. You issues made me think about how I would solve this problem with ...

It looks like you may have 3 issues that are important for Kanban - You have a high WIP issue. You may have a prioritization challenge. You also have a 'sizing' problem. Let me elaborate on each - High WIP. Clearly, you have a number of well-defined and not so well-defined projects that you have to do. The projects seem sizeable enough to manage on ...

https://www.subtask.com/ looks like what you are looking for. http://mindontrack.com/ too. Basically I googled "mindmap task management", you may find more alternatives in the results.

I assume you are familiar with http://www.personalkanban.com/pk/ I am not an expert in Kanban personally but here is how I solve your issues: I have a "Waiting for" list for things that I can't work on but should be reviewed regularly. For example, any email I send and I expect a reply would go in that list. Therefore, if the person doesn't answer after ...

workflowy.com may be a fit for you. It's basically an outline editor with cross-node search, and you can annotate anything with labels. Labels can be used to filter and connect nodes. Check out their usage videos for a quick demonstration. You can take the free version very far, and (if I recall correctly) this includes basic sharing and collaboration. ...

While GTD says you should only have one to do list, this isn't always practical. For me, I can't have my work tasks on my personal to do system and I don't want my personal tasks on my work to do system. Which means I have two GTD type lists. I deal with that by not overlapping in contexts (much). I know that I look at my work TODO lists for work and ...

The one thing that I kept seeing over and over again was application. This application, that application, application application. I'm becoming afraid that I miss something, cause maybe a task is written in one list but not the other. I am a programmer. I make applications but personally all of what I want to do is written in an old-fashioned ...

Is there a way to have one application for everything (including pomodoro)? Have a look at http://weekplan.net It gives you Pomodoro tracking, Task management and planning, and a mission statement editor.

Is there a way to have one application for everything (including pomodoro)? There is no need to have an app for creating a todo list and pomodoros, since these are two different things: one is a tool to remember things, the other is a tool to stay focused and take brakes. Think what to do vs. how or in which pacing to do. In case you need to use ...

Emacs org mode :D I won't go into details here, because it's a horribly deep rabit hole to go into. I have tried giving this exact same answer already, so I'll just show you a link to that. It does, however, require you to learn emacs, if you haven't alreay, and org-mode, if you haven't already. You can use org-mode for taking notes, your agenda and your ...
