Hey, you didn't mention "Things???" Just kidding.
I agree with your idea on making productivity personal. My slogan has been, "Always choose tools you'll use." In the simplest sense, pick the tools that you will actually use in your day-to-day. If that's an app, great. If it's paper, then that's what works for you.
We also probably agree that there is a balance between using your system with blinders on, and always picking up the newest, shiniest new tool. :)

Mike, sounds like an amazing event. I have heard great things about it.
May have to put it on my wish list for 2013. :)

@rosemaryoneill Love the daily organization pad! Nice. :)

@ginidietrich Visibility is key. Absolutely.
If you don't look at it, your todo list can't have your back. :)
Ah.... Can't resist jumping in this one with you and Michael. ;)
My todo list of choice for some time has been Wunderlist.
I prefer its simplicity and the fact that it syncs across all my devices... Mac, iPhone, iPad...
Paper lists are great... But I tend to find that they are often set down or forgotten.
Either way, my slogan is always, "Choose tools you'll use."
@mikevardy @wwarero Here is a quick look I did with Workflowy...
Not sure it is a direct Asana competitor... but it is a powerful tool.
I use it all the time. :)

@ginidietrich @MSchechter I too write entirely in the WordPress interface. I like the speed and quickness to publish. I usually start with a picture and craft things as I go... adding links and formatting.

@geeagent Thanks for sharing... I love Workflowy, as well. However, I don't use Workflowy for tasks... more for notes and outlining.

@TimoKiander Timo... I think recurring tasks are not in Wunderlist at the moment. Think they will add it.
Recurring tasks ARE in Wunderkit... which is their project management platform. :)
@Lois M Thanks for the kind words, Lois! Best wishes!

@livelovework Thanks, Chrysta... appreciate the sharing.
I would agree with you that you need to get "enough" sleep or else getting up early can be counter-productive. :) Best wishes!
@Veronica Brown Love this. You are right... it can sometimes seem a bit lonely when you are "out front." I find that if you are doing the right things, that there is usually a group right behind you... following your lead and wanting to support you. ;)
@Sallyann That is a very true thought! It is amazing how lucky you get when you are out there doing the work. ;)
@TimoKiander Absolutely! Love your thought there, Timo.
If you don't push yourself... you will not reach new levels. It is by stretching our limits that we move our boundaries. :)
@Mary Agnes Antonopoulos Thanks Mary Agnes for sharing!
Love to hear how tracking your time has changed your activities. :)
And how others are using time tracking apps.
@rosemaryoneill @Loren Pinilis Oh no, I sense some Hot Pocket references coming...
Saw Jim Gaffigan recently in Atlanta!

@Tracey When you "Star" items, they go to the top of the individual list they are on. And they are added to the "Starred" list. You are correct that on the phone, you cannot currently re-order that list. (although you can on the desktop) Hopefully, this is something that will be added soon.

@adycoles Thanks, Ady! I knew you were a big Wunderlist fan! :)
Yes, those are the two angles that really make it work for me. I have access to my Wunderlist no matter is I am at my iMac... laptop... iPhone... or iPad.
Joan, glad you like @wunderlist ! It has been my goto app for sometime now.
I prefer it because it gets the work done... instead of getting mired down in too many options, etc. :)
I like the philosophy behind the Action Method. Really like the action steps and drive towards action. Also, the delegation aspect between team members.
I tried the app once upon a time, but did not use it enough to adequately comment.
Is that what you are using currently? How is it working for you?
