As is so often the case, I’ve let myself get behind on all of the tasks and projects I need to keep up with. Between work, hobbies, volunteering, &tc it’ REALLY easy to do. Once upon a time, I used the Franklin Planner system, which was pretty awesome. With the advent of the smartphone, though, the need to carry around a paper binder full of calendars and todo lists and project organization seemed silly.
And for a while it was AWESOME. I could put most of what I need into things like OmniFocus, Evernote and Remember the Milk. All these great tools centered around GTD.
But times change, and tools change, and I find myself in a bind with the tooling. I have something like 11 streams of incoming tasks/information, each it’s own “silo” :
– Google Calendar
– Remember the Milk
– Exchange Mail
– Exchange Calendar
And those are the ones I remember of the top of my head. Now, short moving BACK to a paper system just to centralize everything, is there a tool out there that can/does integrate ALL these input streams and will help me organize them all? Some basic requirements :
OS Support :
– Mac (both home & work)
– Linux (home mostly)
– Bonus for any of the other listed streams above
Price : Reasonable. Free and OSS preferred
Am I out of my mind in thinking that somewhere there is a tool that can do all that? Or am I going back to the dark ages and going back to killing trees (i.e. paper)?
