Note however that you should give new tools a chance, just in case they will revolutionize your work.
Tools I used to manage tasks
Eisenhower Assistant is a tool I made myself to track my tasks. It is a basic interface to help prioritize tasks based on the Eisenhower matrix.
Google Calendar is a great tool to track appointments and invite others to the events.
Google Inbox views all your emails as tasks. It allows you to mark them as ‘done’ or lets you snooze them to a later date.
Google Now is the voice assistant that you can download for Android. Specifically, I use it to plan tasks, for example “Ok Google, remind me to finish my mindmap when I get home”
Physical Notebooks are tools I like using on conferences or other places where I don’t want to be using my phone.
Tools I use to manage planning:
Evernote is my favorite note taking app. I use it to jot down ideas, generate checklists and generally plan projects.
Xmind is my favorite mindmapping tool, it’s simple and powerful. I use it to plan structures, summarize information or to do brainstorms.
Postits are a very nice way to turn your walls into planning and brainstorming tools. I have a permanent collection on my closet.
