andyswan: I’ve seen all the productivity tools.  GTD systems, email systems, scheduling tips and tricks and programs.  I don’t know if they work.  Honestly I don’t care— I trust my brain and I don’t want it leaning on a crutch. Here’s what I know DOES work: Write shit down.  Cross shit off.   (WSD/CSO for those of you that click on things that have more scientific or official-looking names.) Works long term.  Works short term.   Know what you want.  Do what it takes to get it. Win. Partly true. A good way to get unstuck is to write it down. It puts the bones in the goose. Digitize the stuff you’ll need to do later, preferably much later.

The To Do List

The Pomodoro Technique.

Things.  

Omnifocus.

Pen and Pad

There are many ways to record a to-do list and get things done.  But how your prioritize your list and take action is all that matters.

While crossing things off the list is satisfying, a project is never really done.  There’s always ways to improve.  But some things are better left as is.    

A to do list is just a way to get started, to inspire positive action.  The real challenge is remaining flexible in your time so you don’t overfocus on something that’ll make no difference in the end. 

Maybe this is why I vacillate between some of the different task managers and time keepers listed above.  None of the them really work.  That’s when I realign on my goals and vision and just attack.  Get it done. 

Never works.
