My ToDo List is pretty simple. I have a rough schedule on Outlook that
keeps track of meetings, etc., but I also make a daily list of what
needs to be done on old business cards (I've had a number of jobs over
the years and a lot of left over cards). It works great and I get to
recycle those old cards. I've also used old Day-Timer planner pages and
whatever blank papers I have laying around. When I'm done, I just toss
the old list in the fireplace (or wood stove).
I tried to keep track of things using a Day-Runner (or Day-Timer) and on
a PDA, but they always seemed to much of a hassle. My wife uses a
Day-Timer and loves it. She also tried a PDA and ended up giving it away.
