This is how I get work done! Here is the workflow I use to help me maintain control over the tasks I put my energy into during the day. This deck also explains the rationale behind it and the core tools (both on Mac and iPhone/iPad) that allow me to be remember more and keep focus on what needs attention. I hope it helps you - would welcome feedback, here or at my blog on www.purplesalix.com.
