Dear @Evernote, I Want to Use your Service But This is Unacceptable

Over and over tonight (strong wifi):

Looks like I’m sticking with Basecamp.

Great Use of Backpack with Pages for Each Day.

work: wed

“I have a page set up for each day of the workweek, and I evenly distribute the action tasks for all of my marketing tactics throughout the week.

On a given day, I simply click on that day’s page and get to work on the tasks, which are within a handy checklist (see image above along the left).

Each Monday, I un-check all the lists on every page, which helps me to stay accountable to my plans and goals for my business. I can clearly see what got done and what did not get done over the previous week. After un-checking the items, I’m ready to begin another week.”

I love this implementation of workflow in Backpack.

Personally, I’m using Backpack in the GTD style (main INBOX for dumping everything then sub-folders pertaining to specific contexts or actions that need to be taken).

However, it would be very cool to do a blend of my GTD style with the daily pages style and incorporate individual classes (since I’ll be teaching 4-5 individual classes).

Clearly, I love todo lists more than actually acting upon them 🙂




37signals Affiliate Program

One of my favorite “web2.0” companies out there, 37signals, launched an improved affiliate program. They are the company behind Basecamp, BackPack and HighRise.

My wife is hooked on Backpack for organization and lists. I use Basecamp for all of my work flow and as a nerve center for GettingThingsDone. so there’s a wide audience for this:

I know B2B offers do well in the Spring and Summer as people try to do more with less time since everyone would rather be outdoors, so check out 37signals if you need an offer in that area.
