Though other means of communication have evolved, email continues to maintain its traction. And one of the ways that my email gets utilized is for subscriptions. There are those that I want, like an engaging leadership blog, and there are those that I dislike, like the ones for major discounts on monogrammed coffee mugs.
I recall 30-35 years ago when I was a teen and my dad worked in the concrete construction business. He was a foreman and would travel from job to job to check in on his guys and the progress of their work. I worked a couple of summers and got to ride around with him.
The crews loved him. Beyond his care for them as people, he was super organized in his work. He knew details, remembered conversations, and made things happen. These were also the days before smartphones and task management apps.
I think we would all agree that there is more information coming at us than ever before. And it seems like there is more information that I have to do something with than ever before.
And that demands that I have a working system in place that is going to help me keep important ideas, information, and conversations systematized in a manner that is efficient, easy to reference, and intuitive to use.
I have tested and tried several productivity apps/tools over the years and have read many blog posts about the topic of “getting more done.” Today I would like to introduce you to one that has worked its way into my “Top Ten” listing because of its price, utility, and support features.

I recently assisted in helping organize an area for a friend and it was one of those situations where you just do not know where to even start. There was obviously a need for “reworking the area” but the task seemed so large and unwieldy that I was tempted to analysis paralysis.
