Task Management in 2018

```text One of the most important, if not the most important part of a well functioning system for managing the things you have to do is a ever changing system to manage it all. ```

```text The system I was happy with in 2010 or in 2012 or 2015 is not the same as what I am happy with today. ```

```text I started to notice some eh let’s call them “growing problems” with my pen and paper only system earlier this autumn; the short version: ```

```text
  • I forgot to write stuff down
  • I didn’t find some of what I wrote down
  • etc
  • etc
  • ```

    ```text So, I decided to move back to Todoist. Their apps aren’t the best, to say the least. But they do have a good API. So I can get it to do what I need. ```

    ```text Where does pen, paper and all the stuff we love fit into this? ```

    ```text While I don’t currently use pen and paper to mange everything (at the moment) I still use it for a few very crucial tasks. I still use my beloved Leuchtturm1917 dot grid notebook in the planning stage, or when I do a brain dump. And I still use it to map out the most important stuff I need to get done day per day per week. ```

    ```text And I do of course bring my notebook instead of a computer do meetings, like a grown up. ```
