Sometimes it is really hard to keep track of all the things you need to do at work, at home or for organizations that you belong to. I have actually reverted to using a paper calendar, while some people use their BlackBerry, Android or iPhone.
It got me thinking, what tools are available online that can help me organize my life if I am not using MS Outlook or some enterprise level tool? Here are a few I found:
- Google Calendar – kind of a no brainer, but super easy to use, especially if you have an existing Google account. I guess Google Wave will be the next contender .
- Backpack – from 37 signals. It helps you corral all of the information you need including schedules, docs, discussions.
- GoToMyPC – is brilliant for accessing multiple computers – like work from home and home from work. Access it from any connected web browser.
- Remember The Milk – this tool has got the smart phones covered with an iPhone, Android, gmail, BlackBerry and Window Mobile app. They even have a sync up with Twitter.
I guess it doesn’t matter which tools you use to help manage your life. The real challenge is using one until you find something that fits the needs of your daily life and will help you to save yourself the embarrassment of having to do Monday Links on Tuesday.
