Hey, I was wondering if you guys use any websites or tools to stay organized in your business, and to track goals you want to accomplish, and stuff to keep a todo list of what you need to do that day?

    Instead of a website why don't you make a slide show for your desktop background with your goals written on it and what you see your self accomplishing that way every time you get on your computer you are reminded and don't have to log into a web site.

      This actually works. I thought it was a bunch of baloney at first, but I gave it a shot. My writing production went through the roof. I've been doing it ever since.

      @Edwin Torres, combine that with Google Calendar linked to your mobile device and you should be good to go, at least for me I was good to go.

    Two of the best are CreateNewHabits.com and Simpleology. Mark Joyner just came out with version 4.0 I think, so I'm not really sure what has changed in it.

    Personally, I go to the dollar store and buy one of those little academic planners so I can take it with me. I write down 6 things each day I want to do in my business to further my goals. I have 3 things I do each day to keep me focused and on track. This I call my hour of power, and it's 20 minutes of meditation, 20 minutes of exercise, and then 20 minutes of reading something, usually the Science of Getting Rich. Just that one hour a day keeps me in a good mood all day, and I'm much more focused, and I get a lot more done.

    It's what works for me.

    Good luck,

    Jinger

    I like producteev.com - it is a task management site with a downloadable app for iOS devices (maybe even Android). Think MS Project meets mom's to-do-list. Has been great for tracking long-term tasks, etc.

    Hi

    Getting Things Done ("GTD") by David Allen is my favourite time management - and task management - system by far and easily the quickest implementation of it for anyone who uses a computer regularly is The Secret Weapon, which is found at The Secret Weapon: Evernote and GTD smoothly integrated into TSW. This is a brilliant combination of GTD and Evernote. It is simple, effective, and you can add new To Do items using your smart phone.

    I've been happy using The Secret Weapon for well over six months now and that's easily a record for the length of time I've been happy using any time management system. It's a great way to see you to dos.

    To keep me on track I use two things: one is setting multiple timers in Freetime app on iPad. I have 6 timers set up, and time how long I spend on the 6 main categories I have of daily tasks. The other useful tool is Timedoctorl. Timedoctor.com. You install their software on your computer and it helps you track how you (or an ourtsourcer) spend your day. It's really useful.

    Timing yourself just works to help you keep on track!

    Cheers

      Gerry Lacuarta's IM Control Panel is pretty cool. It's good to use as a central hub to set goals in and keep track of all your assets as they build.

        Right now I use the web version of Evernote. They also have a downloadable version. But I prefer the web version since I can log on to my notes in any computer. Before I came across Evernote I always have so many pads and notebooks around my workplace.

          Yeah - Evernote has so many advantages to it to use for managing your time.

          - It has excellent smartphone and tablet versions
          - For smartphone there is Smartever which captures your notes really fast
          - You can make audio notes and email them to your Evernote account

          I find that using it with Getting Things Done is really a winner for me. At last I am implementing GTD! And it's all thanks to Evernote.

            Thumbs up for Evernote as I use it every single day and have great experience with it. Other than Evernote, I used some basic tools:

            - Taskos - for smart phone. It works like a task manager, but with other cool features to handle your to do list.
            - Alarms: a reminder on important tasks
            - Stopwatch & Timer: keep my time in control
            - google calendar: to synchronize among all my devices to keep my updated on meetings and appointments.

    asana.com
    basecamp.

    Basecamp is a paid tool with 60 days trial.
    Also I use any.do app on my phone.

    I've not explored Evernote thought I downloaded it.

    I use a free online tool like Trello.com, Podio.com and Teambox.

    They help you organize your projects and keep track of each progress.

    If you are a busy person, it always help to have a free online collaborator to help you keep track of everything and be more productive.

    Another vote here for Simpleology.

    I signed up for a 60 day trial of the Elite version about a month ago and must say it has definitely improved my productivity alot.

    As someone who suffers from serious mental clutter it has helped me to clarify my goals, organize my business and personal tasks better, and just generally get more done.

    There is a free version and Pro is only $7 a month, but I intend to use it extensively over the coming year so will probably stick with Elite.

      Just goes to show it's "horses for courses"! I checked out Simpleology and found IT too cluttered!

      That's the problem for me with lots of time management software - you can spend too much time USING it! Still, if it works for you - to make you more productive - that's the main thing.

    Even though my life is 90% on a computer, phone, or tablet, I still enjoy the old school way of writing things down. In our office, we have a big rectangle of white board paint on the wall in each room and conference room. That way we have our monthly goals written down for everyone to see in each room and in the conference rooms, we usually have our daily goals pertaining to the meetings that occur. We have a calendar of tasks that need to be done that we can all view via dropbox (each employee has their own calendar that one of the managers creates each month)...that makes remembering tasks pretty easy!

    my galaxy note3 with the s-pen has been awesome for staying organized and jotting down things/maintaining lists on the fly. old fashioned handwriting works well and now the technology exists to match.

      I'd like to give this a try. Writing things out helps with memorization, but paper notes are not easy to store, search, and they don't exactly travel well.

    OMNIFOCUS works great for Mac and iPhone. I use it a lot.

    EVERNOTE is great too, I keep all my documents on the cloud, and the webclipper to take new information into it.

    NOTES and STICKS for Mac are handy too, just keeping on writing things and keeping it synced into the cloud, its a good way to keep things off my mind!
