Working On That New Year’s To-Do List? Here are Some Tips



The new year is all about getting your act together and staying on top of those emails, to-do lists, and more. Here are a few software products to help you along the way:

  • MindJet’s MindManager – a very popular application for brainstorming, managing projects, managing to-do lists, and integrating with Outlook. They also make a Mac version
  • Outlook 2007 – The To Do list in the side bar is a great way of staying on top of emails that you’ve flagged or tasks you’ve created. To ways to keep tabs on an email: drag it to your Task List button to create a task from the email; or, flag it for follow up so it shows up in the To Do list
  • Create a to-do template in OneNote 2007
  • Franklin Covey’s PlanPlus for Outlook
  • Create an on-the-fly To Do list in Windows Journal

What other tips or software would you recommend?

    Evernote. Create a category for “MUST DO 2009”. Then it’s on all your devices, all the time.

    Hi Rob,
    A fantastic list you made! It is for quite some time also my list as a somehow ADD-er with quite a chaos in my head, but therefore I became a super-specialist in organizing for myself and organisations.

    Some additions to your list I would like to make it complete:

    – Included now in Franklin Covey PlanPlus 6 for Outlook is PocketInformant8: a super duo for PC and PDA (HTC-TyTN);
    – As OntheFly list The SideNotes in OneNote 2007;
    – And last but not least: OneNote 2007 SideNotes sync with OneNote Mobile on PDA.
    Best Regards and a very Happy NewYear for you all.
