I’ve done quite a few Software Spotlight articles covering various applications that I use on a constant basis. And while each of these applications deserve the spotlight in their own respect, I have come to rely on a service more than others: Remember The Milk.
Remember The Milk is a simple cloud-based task management system that provides all the functionality needed to run a reliable GTD system without much extra overhead. What RTM lacks in fancy features, it makes up for with integration with many other services out there, like Google Calendar and Twitter.
So, why has RTM become such an integral part of my lifestyle?
As I’ve mentioned multiple times here in the past, I am working on writing a novel. Truthfully, there is enough material in the universe of this novel for three or four full length novels.
I started with the ideas in late 2002, and have progressively and consistently dropped the ball day after day since then. I have found that there are no less than four things that have played into my failure in finishing the novel(s) that I have been working on over the past few years.
I have been pretty much stagnating when it comes to the projects and ideas that I’ve come up with over the past five years. I have gotten pretty far into the Overneath universe, but motivation is starting to wane, as it has in the past.
