    How do you keep yourself organized?

    I've always thought about how people do that. Where do you keep your notes, information and interesting things you end up discovering in the magical webz?

    I keep most of the things in a bunch of txts, which means I end up opening 10~12 txts every day to check/write random things. I feel very disorganized in this environment, and would like a better alternative, even though I don't know any.

    I also don't like Evernote myself, but that's just me.

    I use Remember the Milk. It supports just about every type of device and other service under the sun, so it's easy to keep everything synced across different OSes, on the move, etc. I mostly use it on my phone tbh, a to-do list is no good if it's not always in your pocket IMO.

    Re: How do you keep yourself organized?

    I am just happy being somewhat disorganised...

    But I use Notes on my Android phone (open source basic notes app), and intermittently share them to Evernote (which is too slow for regular use on my phone - but otherwise quite good for my needs, and allows sharing between users).

    I also use Pocket for saving web pages / news articles directly from my RSS feed reader on my phone.

    Both Evernote and Pocket sync with web clients.

    For specific projects, I use tiddlywiki from my browser, which has the benefit of wiki links between notes and search function.

    Dropbox is good for storing txt files and such. Also apps on android that sync notes online somewhere are great. For stuff not as important I use the xfce notes app
    Whoever came up with the phrase "There is no such thing as a stupid question" obviously never had the internet.

    Calendar: Google Calendar
    Tasks: Astrid (trying it out after using Toodledo for some time)
    Notes: Zim (personal wiki)

    Google calendar integrates seamlessly with the Gnome desktop and my Android smart phone. Astrid has slick clients for the web and Android (with real-time sync).

    I keep my Zim notes in Dropbox, so they they are available on my home desktop, work desktop and laptop. Zim doesn't have an Android client, but the wiki pages are text files so I can use the Dropbox app to access them from my phone.

    I am unorganised, but I know where my stuffs are and I have good memory (not being boastful but I never need notes to remind me of things and if I work out something I would remember it so I only scribbles on books' margin or loose paper, once I go through the process I can throw away the paper or erase the margin because it is now in my ram) Creative people are not organised.

    I don't bother.

    The great thing about forgetting everything is that I'm always having a new experience.


    No matter how often I've had it before!
