Viagra Facts

December 18, 2007

Viagra facts One of the biggest trends to hit the tech world in 2007 is the new religion of “Getting Things Done”. Viagra facts The concept is really a time-honored subject and not new at all, viagra facts just a bit stale for the times. Viagra facts

I was a heavy Franklin Covey user back in the 90′s and really loved it, viagra facts but a change eventually happened- the more my life became my “Digital Life”…the Franklin process became old. Viagra facts Writing down, viagra facts by hand, viagra facts your daily to-dos became bothersome and time consuming. Viagra facts Email programs like Outlook came into the picture, viagra facts giving users the ability to create a task directly from an email. Viagra facts And we thought, viagra facts “Cool”. Viagra facts We started using software applications to manage our daily to-dos, viagra facts but that process was also broken because it wasn’t as easy to carry around like a planner was. Viagra facts Then companies like Franklin Covey started producing software for your email program, viagra facts based around their GTD methodologies. Viagra facts We now have a mix of software and printing our lists out…argh! oh yah, viagra facts the PDA, viagra facts oh the PDA!

Viagra facts We now have three different areas where our daily info lives. Viagra facts The PDA, viagra facts Desktop machine, viagra facts and the printed out pages for our planner, viagra facts because we really like the feel of having that book in our hands. Viagra facts The main problem is syncing the data so that whatever you look at remains current. Viagra facts That never happens so there are issues with keeping our lists straight….hmmm. Viagra facts I don’t think that is what GTD should be about.

Fast forward about 6-7 years, viagra facts to a vast array of GTD web applications, viagra facts desktop applications, viagra facts and mobile applications. Viagra facts They all have their own philosophies of how we should organize our day-to-day lives. Viagra facts They all have learning curves. Viagra facts These new apps also have the “Is this really current?” question that surrounds them. Viagra facts The solutions are webservices that allow users to sync their data to a master database and have all their applications work with the master. Viagra facts I think we are getting closer to having a true digital workflow without roadblocks. Viagra facts If we still need a planner, viagra facts then grab a Moleskin and jot down observations from time to time. Viagra facts Or you could transpose from Moleskin to digital if that keeps things a little more solid for you. Viagra facts I am interest in what others have to say, viagra facts Please Comment!
