I love to write lists. I have a list of things to do daily. I keep a detail listing of events and activities using an online planner. Then every day, I transfer my listing to a piece of paper so I can have it in writing. For me, the act of physically striking out a completed task is very satisfying. It works for me but it does take some effort. Nonetheless, I cannot go without my online planner. It is dynamic, updateable, easy to use, color coded, sharable, and accessible.
Here are a few online planners you can use to maximize your time management.
www.cozi.com – this syncs with Outlook and has mobile access
www.jibidee.com – has limited mobile access on your iPhone, iPad, Blackberry, etc and is single user only (i.e. your calendar cannot be shared with others)
www.homelife.daytimer.com – allows multi-user with many synchronizations
Alternatively, if you have Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail, or GMail, you can also use their calendaring service to fill your needs.
