Here’s the thing: I really enjoy web-based list managers such as Remember the Milk, but for some reason, every time I log on to see my to-do list, I get sucked into the Mysterious Funnel of Time Wastery, which kind of defeats the whole purpose. Thus, my wholehearted re-embrace of the paper list.
Version 0.3 includes the popular Gmail Super Clean, One Click Conversations, Hide Gmail Invites, Unlabelled, and the updated version of the Filter Assistant, as well as a little bit of an options dialog revamp. After the jump, have a look.
Mobile-friendly versions of big web sites are becoming a lot more common. Most news sites have them, as do the portals. Edelman too has one that’s on a dot-mobi URL (one of our clients). Still, lots of sites don’t have a mini companions.
Enter Mowser. The site, which is run by mobile guru Russ Beattie, is a great home page for your your phone. You can enter any URL and it will shrink it down for you. Even better, if the site you want to view has a feed it will auto-detect it and present it in a very clean, efficient way that’s perfect for phones.

Normally I don’t care for tech news and releases but I felt I had to mention about the latest release of Ubuntu Linux. I’ve given Hoary Hedgehog (5.04) and Dapper Drake (6.06) a try in the past and while I was impressed I still felt it wasn’t a fully polished package and combined with the hard work it took to get it set up even remotely how I wanted it, I decided to leave it for a while.

Habit: do one task at a time, without distractions.
This is one of the most important habits in ZTD. It’s the doing part of the system. All the other parts are useless if you don’t do the doing part — so emphasize this the most. The tools, the system, the planning, the to-do lists … none of that matters as much as the doing (well, as long as you’re doing the most important things).
ZTD focuses on doing your tasks one at a time, to the exclusion of all else. Don’t multi-task, and don’t let yourself get interrupted. Follow this advice, and you will really get things done.
Most Lifehack readers are in tune with the value of goal-setting and how important it is to have a vision of what you want to achieve. This vision is really solidified by having actual visual representations of your goals. I like having a place to look at things that inspire me, like quotes, photos, and other meaningful scraps of paper that I enjoy, so this weekend I did a very easy project using cork tiles to create more bulletin board space. I created this space in my closet so that I could see these motivating items each morning when I am getting ready for the day.
