Remember The Milk

If you are going to be working on a project with many details, or even multiple projects at once, you NEED to stay organized. There really is no choice in the matter. The question though is – HOW do you keep organized?

Personally I’ve always been a fan of “To-Do” lists. Starting with sticky notes, moving to a text file I kept updated, and later on to scheduling applications. It was always a To-Do list that helped me be able to accomplish everything in my daily projects, chores, and life in general. So I was very pleasantly surprised when I stumbled across Remember The Milk.
