191 Task Management


Whatever you want to get done in life, a task management app is the most valuable productivity tool that I can recommend to help you. In this episode, I explain what a task management app is and outline why it is so useful. I provide examples of how I use a task management app to help reach my goals, as well as some tips for power users. Topics covered include:

  • Origins of task management apps and some current examples
  • The benefits of a task management app over simple "to do" lists.
  • The inefficiency of switching tasks and the value of focussed work
  • How to use an app to create well-defined tasks that are easier to complete
  • The power of filtering your commitments by context
  • The value of checklists and how a task manager can store them
  • creating your own "perspectives" on tasks
  • The most valuable feature to look for in a task management app: filtering by availability
