A recent LinkedIn survey found that the vast majority of professionals make to-do lists, but only 11% of people with those lists actually complete everything for a given day.

I a big fan of using Evernote to digitally store almost everything that I may ever need to recall. Good idea, restaurants I want to visit, meeting notes, etc. One limitation of Evernote is it’s lack of simultaneous editing of notes.

You can put all your team content in a central workspace: build todo-lists, share documents, annotate visuals, run conference calls (perfect for teams on the go), all in one place.

“Productivity” Tricks for the Neurotic, Manic-Depressive, and Crazy Like Me. ~ By Tim Ferriss
I am a big fan of productivity. Probably more than actually being productive I like to try out new productivity apps and methods.

If you would like to get started with Nozbe yourself, you can try it out for free here.
The free version only allows 5 Projects or Categories so you will likely want to upgrade but it is well worth it. Also, if you are planning or working together with a team, the ability to delegate and keep track of tasks is a nice feature.
Lastly, if you want to learn more about Getting Things Done, Nozbe’s founder, Michael Sliwinski, has put together a nice course that explains the basics.
