Working Tools: Task Managers

The analogue solution to task management has always been lists. “Things to do”. If you will. To solve the tricky problem of future tasks, say an insurance renewal, mankind came up with planners. But I'm off on a tangent.

Notes on notes

I’d written a post on the race to be the next Prime Minister of the UK, but frankly, I lost interest. I just can’t be bothered.

Effortless organisation. That’s what I want. A system that’s instinctive, forgiving and easy on the eye. That’s not too much to ask for, is it? No? Well, while we’re here, I’d also like extendibility and expandability. A system that can grow with my needs.
