  • MyLifeOrganized

    I am struggling to find software that I can use to implement GTD. I have a Windows computer. I would use paper but my handwriting is awful.

    I ran across MyLifeOrganized yesterday. I am wondering if anyone has any thoughts about it. In particular I do not want something that will take years to learn.

    Thanks

    I keep coming back to it

    I've been using MLO for a few years.

    Over that time, when Gadget Lust takes hold, I have looked at various other software packages, but have always come back to MLO.

    I've found nothing more flexible - you can set it up however you like. For me, the use of Contexts, Due Dates and ability to have multiple levelled subtasks are critical.

    Can't recommend the package strongly enough

      Thank you for the reply. I think I will look at it in depth.

        My goal was and is to implement GTD fully, but to simplify it as much as I could, because like you, I didn’t want something that would take years to learn.

        My system looks like this

        Pod-Mod (for capturing, daily MITs, errands list, calls list)
        Mobile (strickly for incoming/outgoing calls, tickers/reminders)
        Google Calendar (appointments)
        Google Mail (dah!)
        Google Docs (for any project details)
        SimpleGTD (projects, contexts, next actions)

        Game over

          I wish I knew:

          What a pod mod was.
          mobile I assume means a mobile phone.

            My previous reply was sent by some sort of fluke, before I was done with it, thus making me look dumber than I am.

            What do you carry around with you to implement all of these things (google docs, etc)? Anything?

            Thanks

              All I carry around with me is my phone and pocket-mod for capturing stuff, next actions, errands list, calls list.

                Pocket Mod

                Pocket Mod is really brilliant. I used the website v2 version for a few months and have finally created a Word format (or actually copied one done by someone else and did my own customization).

                By doing my own I have control over font size which becomes important; the down side is losing the time-oriented features of the web site, like "this week's calendar", "next week's calendar", etc. Tried to recreate that in Word but couldn't come up with anything that wouldn't have been prohibitively high-maintenance.

                Now I paste in my week's schedule from Lotus Notes, my work assignments (we do resource scheduling using custom Notes app), and just have the other pages set up with checklist lines (bulleted blank lines similar to those in pocket mod v2).

                It certainly doesn't *replace* mobile digital devices, but it is the next best thing to a good old PalmOS running graffiti version 1. The handwriting recognition is excellent

                  MyLifeOrganised has a 45 days full feature trial (desktop and handheld version) which syncs to each other perfectly. just try it out yourself.

                  NO, i am not a seller. Just a happy user. i still got about 10 days trial left before i purchase this software

                      HTC Advantage 7510

                      ... although I must admit, I don't use MLO on it as it's a little slow and I don't find it easy to use.

                      That's probably the one shortcoming at the moment - although an iPhone version is in the works, which will make my lists a little more mobile.
