comment How to take notes when reading technical books
very good points. I also made this experience (with a very long project, where it may take weeks or months since the last time working on it) that writing some kind of short "working diary" is extremely helpful for restarting quickly. However I would also recommend to make notes about the content (as this is at least for me the only way to memorize - I forget really quickly, if I have only read something without taking notes. Same is true for meetings).

@xralf: "EDIT: Finally, I have found out that Workflowy provides this feature via tags. So, this is the answer" you can write an answer to your own question and accept it, if this is the solution to your problem. IMHO the question and the existing answers are still useful and worth being kept here.

comment How do I set priorities and estimate completion time for 30 projects, 600 tasks?
@RobertoDelgazzo: I do understand your frustration. For giving a more concrete answer, you might give more detail in your question what you're actually doing and what tools you are using for maintaining your task list(s). You say, "this is all known". Did you read Michael Linenberger's books, especially the one I mentioned in my answer?

comment Hierarchical notetaking application
this was also my first thought. I've started using Emacs and org-mode more than a year ago and sure it needs some time learning the basics, but it es extremely powerful, flexible and can be easily extended to your needs. For note-taking I prefer Freeplane (freeplane.sourceforge.net ), but for storing and organizing notes, todos and projects, org-mode is amazing!

My first thought was Emacs org-mode (already proposed by jxy: productivity.stackexchange.com/a/5767/566)! I did never work with workflowy, just hat a short look at the demo-video, but I'd say that orgmodecan do everything that workflowy does (creating and reorganizing hierarchical lists) + much more. If you like it more "visual", you could try Freeplane (see my example workflow here: productivity.stackexchange.com/a/7618/566)

comment Is there an email/forum productivity tool which can automate reply generation?
@apathetic: maybe my approach with Freeplane mindmapping software could be used as a base to create something more sophisticated. Freeplane can be extended easily by Groovy scripts. productivity.stackexchange.com/a/7618/566

very good points - also cure the root causes instead of only working on the symptoms!
