Back in law school my task list was a napkin. Everyday I wrote down the two or three things I needed to get done and stuck it in my pocket. At the end of the day I’d check off those items, use the napkin with dinner, and start again the next day.
Unfortunately, that no longer works for me. I’ve got too many oars in the water for a system that simple. However, not everyone is a freak like me.
My friend Ben Brooks released an app called Begin that gives you a simple list of tasks for today and tomorrow. This app would have served me well in simpler times. I can see Ben’s design aesthetic all over this application and it’s worth checking out particularly if you have a simple task list.
