Task Management Tools


I’ve always been on the lookout for a task management tool that works for me. The challenge has been I believed (and I still do) that I work in a particular way and I want the task management application to work with me rather than force me to change how I work.

Some of the tools I’ve tried so far include:

  • Notepads (I can’t make do without this)
  • Outlook Tasks,
  • Google Tasks,
  • MindJet Tasks,
  • Producteev,
  • A series of Project Management tools, and
  • About 10 years ago, I even resorted to developing my own piece of software!

None of these have satisfied my needs or my curiosity for finding a better way to manage tasks until around mid-last year when I came across Nozbe. Nozbe is a tool that closely follows the Getting Things Done® (GTD®) framework that was made famous by David Allen.

As stubborn as I can be, I’ve adopted my ways of working to align with the GTD® concepts as well as many of the recommendations by Scott Belkin in Making Ideas Happen: Overcoming the Obstacles Between Vision and Reality.

I’d love to hear if you have any other suggestions for Task Management tools that can be shared with other readers.
