I am feeling kind of… Well, no idea how actually! 🙂
I am currently getting ready for a huge “project” and I really want it to work out! So, naturally, I started preparing myself the best I could. I started studying and reading and getting my schedule all lean so that nothing would come in the way. Out of the blue, in one of my reads, something stroke me: I have no idea how I will organize myself!
I have tried countless time and task management methods and software (from GTD to Bullet Journal, from Wunderlist to Evernote and OneNote) and the thing is: none ever worked for me. Well, they did work for a while (a day, a week, a month) and then it would stop working, letting me feel bad and guilty about the fact that I can never manage my life and time efficiently.
The thing is, for the first time I managed to set time apart to actually make one of them work, to actually empty my life from distractions and today I opened Gmail and I have NO emails (none at all). I actually have tasks for tomorrow which look simple enough and don’t look like a day of a person who has a magical way of turning 24h into 48.
I have been feeling highly motivated lately and.. Wow, it all feels so good! Well, just wanted to share this here.
In case you’re wondering: I am currently working with a mix of Gmail (where lots of tasks come from), Evernote (where important notes and extended information lie), Todoist (the king of all my tasks – which has an amazing 2-way integration with Google Calendar) and IFTTT to link some of these things together.

Am still trying to decide on whether or not Feedly and Pocket have a place in this new scene – but I have decided to let them find their space on their own 🙂
