I frequently find myself really stressed by situations that have much in common. Namely, when I have a bunch of things to do that are equally important, especially if they each involve going to a different place, I get so paralyzed and wishy-washy and timid that I end up doing nothing. I'll include more details about today's example, but what I really want is for someone to teach me how to fish when this comes up. [more inside]
Over time I've migrated from one GTD system to another, finally landing on Evernote as my GTD framework with help from 'The Secret Weapon' and Priacta. It's occurred to me recently that I don't really have a way to track repeating, cyclic tasks. I've tried spreadsheets, Google task, calendar entries but none have stuck around. What are some good ways to manage to-do's that repeat on a schedule? [more inside]
I cannot seem to find a good app that will let me: 1) have recurring tasks 2) allow me to check them off as done (like disappear or strike or some other indicator) 3) presented in calendar form (not a "reminders" list). I don't ask for much. I have checked out many many free apps, none of which accomplish what I want. I'm sure this gem is a paid app and I will gladly fork over based on a suggestion, knowing my criteria. I have yet to find one that has all three of these requirements spelled out. Thanks!

Lawyers have the Uniform Task Based Management System. Doctors have CPT Codes. But what about other industries, like marketing, advertising, and graphic design? The company I work for is developing a list of tasks so we can report our time in a meaningful way, but it's proving to be a more extensive task than anyone anticipated. Surely there's a standardized list for design or advertising professionals. [more inside]

I'm an independent developer. I work from home, and I charge most of my clients by the hour.

I'm having trouble finding up-to-date resources for managing tasks. I freelance and handle about 3 clients that want to push through dozens of small tasks and projects each week. Is there anything with the functionality of basecamp but on a much smaller scale? A well-designed template for a collaborative task list via google documents would work too. [more inside]
We are trying out a virtual assistant service which uses remote human personal assistants based in the US that are communicated with through email and an app. The model is that you buy a month's package of requests that you can make (e.g. 15 task requests, with each task not meant to take more than 20 minutes). It can be a bit difficult to think up tasks for the assistants to do, especially if you only want to make requests for tasks that will save you a big amount of time (rather than tasks - make a restaurant booking etc.- which you could do yourself in just a little more time than it takes to make a request). What are your tips for using this kind of service most effectively? What kinds of task requests are most "bang for your buck" , bearing in mind the limit of a standard month's package of 15 tasks? Thanks!

Business was ... simmering ... and I was starting to let things slip. To get back on track, I created a couple of simple checklists of occasionally recurring processes and saved them as .txt files in dropbox. It works. But it's not very elegant. My lists lack an easy and satisfying way to "cross off" or "tick" finished items. I don't think the system will scale well. I'd like to have some calendar functionality. I may want to share them in the future. Do you have a better way? [more inside]

I'm trying to find a specific to do webapp I used a few months ago. It was of minimalist style, the main colors were red/grey/black on a white background. The main features I'm looking for (so if you know of a different one that does this, let me know) was that it was simple to add a task- you just typed it on a line, and that subtasks were also easy to add- as I recall you just hit enter for a new line and then tab to go each level deeper into tasks. I believe you could hide any sub-tasks by sort of retracting them into the top level task (if that makes sense?). Does that sound familiar to anyone? Thanks! If I remember any more details I'll update the post.

what sort of device can I buy to show my google tasks next to a corkboard, so I see them on my way out the door? do any photo frames do wireless sync? my first thought was a cheap old itouch, but the screen is tiny, and it does more than I need. low power use would also be a plus (i.e. not a laptop or cheap desktop with wall mounted monitor, which I also thought of - I do have an extra 17" sitting around) I could consider switching to another tasks app if required for the best solution, though I do enjoy gtasks in gmail and calendar.

I'm really bad about not focusing on my current task, and hastily finishing whatever it is so I can move on to the next and perform it equally as poor. How can I learn to be more focused on -- and enjoy -- what I am currently doing, rather than spending that time looking ahead to the next project at the expense of doing the first well? [more inside]
TaskList Special Request: MyLifeOrganized is my preferred tasklist software, because I can do exactly what I need - simply create new tasks and sibling/ child tasks rapidly and unrestricted, and drag and drop them into category groups. Problem: I have so many tasks, one huge vertical list isn't really working for me, nor does it jive with my widescreen workspace. Solution: I want to view each category group (eg immediate actions, projects, documents, clients etc) in it's own vertical list, and each list is displayed side by side in a horizontal view. Is there any Win XP tasklist software *not web-based - no internet access at work* that does this?

Recently I found out about http://dailyshoot.com/. Before that I found out about http://www.crossfit.com/. What other sites do you know of that give you a very specific tasks to do everyday? Or every week? I find that I am more motivated to learn something when I am given specific tasks to do or projects to work on so services like this are a big help. Looking for any and all things so don't hold back.
