Get Ahead Fast

If you’re struggling to keep up with all your work, your errands, getting a St. Valentine’s Day gift, and the other things that crowd our minds, you need to check out a powerful combination of new tools: Nozbe.com is the best task and project manager on the planet.  Based on my personal productivity guru David Allen’s Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity method, Nozbe is free for basic activity.  If you’re busy enough to need Nozbe, you’ll probably need one of the fee-based accounts, though. Combine Nozbe with Jott.com.  Jott is a free service that allows you to manage your life from your phone.  You call the 866 number, state the name of the person or system (“nozbe”) you want to Jott, then leave a voice mail.  Jott transcribed the message and forwards it to Nozbe, your e-mail box, someone else’s e-mail, or a cell phone.  You can even blog via Jott.  (Look at the Links page for about 20 programs that Jott interfaces with.)If you haven’t read Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity buy it today, read it, and keep it with you.
