I’m not a resolutions kind of person. I do like arbitrary starts though. 2015 is a big year for me because of as of yet still sekrit projects that will be coming out during the year. I’m in the weird position of needing to plan a while bunch of things and schedule my time much longer into the future than I normally do. I’ve gotten a lot more organized and in control of my various things in the last four months or so due to HabitRPG. It’s basically a to-do app that is set up like a RPG with super cute 8 bit style graphics. Apparently I won’t do things I know I should do just to do them, but if you give me gold and exp I am ALL OVER IT. Make it so I can collect pets and there are multiple colors of said pets? I AM SUPER MEGA ON IT! I worry about my brain, but this is really working for me. I can’t really game and be productive any other way so I’m kind of hardcore about it.
Anyway, this has taught me that I am better off getting ahead of the game and just doing the maintenance to keep it up. So I’m trying to get ahead of stuff this year before I get behind the curve. To help me with this I asked for people’s favorite solutions on Twitter and here’s what people suggested:
@ also likes HabitRPG, DayZero for longterm goals, MS Project for really complex projects, Evernote for organizing information, Mindmeister for mind mapping, and is playing with Raise the Bar for habits.
I already use Evernote and Habit RPG, I’m poking at the Bullet Journal technique and there’s some aspects of Trello that really appeal to my brain.
What works for you?
