I’d heard about this site (mainly from Karen, I think), but never checked it out. Now that I’m starting to think about all the things I have to do for the move, I decided to check it out today and now I’m hooked.
I’m a big fan of making lists (it doesn’t always mean that the things on the list get done, but anyway), and Remember the Milk is so well designed, easy to use and just…nifty that I am now a big fan of making lists online. You can add tasks via email, separate them into various lists, export them, even plot them on a Google map (and you all know how much I love plotting things on Google maps). Also, they’re a Sydney-based Australian company – I always get excited when I see something that is really cool that has come out of Australia, and better yet, my home town.
Of course, then you get the problem of whether it’s a more effective use of your time to plan how you’re going to use your time, or just to get on with it and do things. But I find that when I’ve got lots of big things happening, I’m often immobilised by all the things I have to do, and making lists helps me to sort out the tangled mess of loose ends that is my brain. And if I can integrate that with my love of technology (and Google maps), so much the better.
