  1. for me it’s more often perspective that I let slip. I can do the control parts, but I forget to look up and get perspective.

  2. ScottJanuary 25, 2011 I Have been using Things for Mac for 6 months. It is the best app i have in rnnniug my business. So great that I purchased an IPAD last week just to carry THINGS for IPAD around with me. However, I have been so disappointed that I may return the iPad. I was assuming it would be as powerful as the Mac but it is not even close.
