Post-It notes on steroids…
I came up with this self-organizing post-it note that you can print on your home computer. It’s helped me immensely, and I’ve received so many compliments, that I decided to make it available for free online.
Great now Windoze is talking to me!
Inspired by previously mentioned OS X notifier, Growl, Snarl is designed to be a global notification system for your Windows applications. Unfortunately, Snarl doesn’t have close to the support that Growl has. Snarl currently claims to have plug-ins available for MSN Messenger, Outlook, your Windows system tray, and iTunes – but I can’t seem to actually find one of these extensions for download.
Get more things done by not answering your email? Sounds good to me…
A poster on macOSXHints has come up with the answer for people without willpower — using a timer switch to cut off internet access for some portion of the day.

So who wants to know how to get started with GTD?
David Allen’s Getting Things Done time-management system is based on some pretty esoteric concepts (“knowledge work,” “distributed cognition,” the “ready state” of martial arts, and so on), but in actual practice it’s cheap and very much do-it-yourself.
I think we all need to introduce a new concept to our corporate overlords, power naps!
Research shows that you can make yourself more alert, reduce stress and improve cognitive functioning with a nap. Mid-day sleep, or a “power nap”, means more patience, less stress, increased learning, better health, better reaction time, more efficiency and also many athletes find a daytime nap further increases their body’s ability to build muscle.
Yup another GTD type app for you Mac…
What’s really cool about it (and what brings it into the GTD realm) is that you can categorize your to do lists. This approaches the important context element of the GTD system.
