All of us have to manage our time and our deadlines. At this point in my career, I think I have tried out a fair number of the alternatives: a DayTimer paper calendar, a paper notebook, Microsoft Outlook as well as other various appointment programs etc etc etc.. I think my all-time favourite was a very good personal information program entitled EccoPro (which was unfortunately dropped by the developer but I now see it has been kept alive by a strong user group at http://www.compusol.org/ecco/).
So the search went on. That was, until I found Wunderlist.
An iTunes Hall of Fame app, this cloud-based and synched task manager was named one of the “10 Best Productivity Apps of 2010” by The Next Web. It also happens to be free. It is a multi-platform (Mac, PC, iPhone and iPad, Android, Linux and the Web) and keeps your task lists synched between all of these multiple devices. If you wish you can share your tasks (useful for legal assistants and legal secretaries). You can email reminders and email yourself tasks to Wunderlist. Deadlines and due dates are incorporated as well as Notes and Prioritization.
I like that you can have multiple to-do lists. And reoccurring items and sub-tasks.
I think I have *finally* found the one way to keep all the tasks and deadlines in my professional and personal life in one place, organized and accessible at all times. Simply Wunderful!
