@TheIndependentAquarius have you used any strategies that failed before or is this your first attempt ?

+1 for the screenshot and your custom approach.

comment How to keep up with a todo application?
your suggestion should work with people that have 20 things to do in their lives and can handle them in a paper. When you deal with big projects which have subprojects and dozens of tasks, personal life tasks and trying to run some personal business in parallel with a 9-5 job, then you'll realise it's just theory. What counts is being super organised - missing a task will fall on others like a domino effect. So If you have a little time and much things to do, you don't have the choice to make a mistake. Prioritisation and organisation keep me running and doing.

Can you be more specific? The things you ask are answered free by a simple search, so what's the point of starting a bounty with +500 reputation ? Even for GTD what you ask are basic principles. Help us to get a better reply suited to your needs.

I think that you got what I am asking. This is the situation, discipline is missing. Or overwhelming of much stuff to administer. I've literally tried dozens of apps, notebooks, cards, papers, strategies and some are way better than the others but even the best fail for me because I lose track very easily. I haven't kept an app for task and time management more than 3 or 6 months. The only thing I am sure is that GTD is the most interesting and working implementation of life management for me. So, you describe the problem very well but what's the solution ?

I agree with you but I cannot see what does it have to do with my question.

I believe I was clear - I have tried everything but usually I get bored or there are too many things to do that I lose track and the TODO app I am using gets forgotten.

@TorbenGundtofte-Bruun I disagree with you. I don't need to read another self-improvement blog post, I have begun to feel disgusted to read the same things over and over again.Come one, who doesn't know that deleting things frees up space of any kind? It's like asking "how do I replace a flat tire?" and replying "you remove it and place the new in its place". I have read GTD and books of the same kind like a thousand times - I need a better reply than Inbox, Delegate, Schedule, Reference, Trash.

Sorry man, but most of the things you say are quite obvious. Nothing personal, but most replies here are starting to seem too ordinary to me. Seems that users should start voting If a reply solves something and not because the author spent time to write a big answer, with nice bold text and numbered list bullets.

My question has to do mostly with falling off the wagon when it's hard to keep up with all this stuff to be done. Actually I am following all that you say as I am doing years and years research in task and time management. As far as I get on track, everything runs flawlessly but being loaded with big amounts of work usually overwhelms me. I fight but I am defeated. And don't tell me to get rid of projects and tasks because everything I do is highly prioritised things.
