I know there are some productivity geeks out there. You read 43 Folders, Lifehacker, and Pastor Hacks. You own Moleskines and appreciate what Rachel does with them. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, then you may want to skip reading this post.
I’ve bounced between systems for some time now. I’ve tried Covey, and later Life Balance with a Getting Things Done approach. I haven’t been satisfied, though. It’s important for me to feel like I can rely on the system, and that I’m not spending more time managing the system than actually getting things done.
Last week I began using Backpack. I’ve had an account with them before but I’ve never used it consistently. It’s been a week now and it’s perfect.
It’s simple. It’s reliable. It does everything I need but nothing more.
