Productivity, PKM and LifeOS

I have been struggling with managing my life and my work since the 1980’s. I’m sure I was a major part of the problem (oohh shiny) but there was a long list of methods and tools to try.

I started using a Daytimer, then the Franklin Planner, Covey and PackRat (back in the ’90s’ Disappointing Updates To Good Products – see entry 3). Then there was a lull in process while I worked on re-automating using calendars, spreadsheets and other electronic tools. Then came David Allen in the ’00s and better databases and project managers…. I started using Evernote in 2008 with a mixture of data capture and planning. I acquired the Pocket habit in 2012/13. I had all the pieces, but did not pull together a successful method.

These pages will document my latest (last) attempt to organize my life.
