Getting organized

leave a comment »

Being retired isn’t just all beer and skittles, let me tell you. Yet the illusion of all your time being free can undermine active planning. (Of course, some end their days still working at a job, through choice or by necessity, and so continue planning.)

I’ve found that I can’t just keep things in mind or they get put off (e.g., I remember them each day as I get into bed). So, being computer-oriented, I started today looking for a “to-do” list application, of which there are many. I could use Outlook, but it’s sort of awkward. ReminderFox is useful as a reminder, not so useful as a planner.

Sometime ago, I installed taskTome, which:

is a personal information manager which allows you to maintain a list of events, tasks, notes and financial information.

taskTome is light-weight program that displays the information that you need to keep track of without cluttering it up with un-needed features and controls, while still allowing you complete control over the information – including the ability to search, format, print, export and customize data.

The main features of taskTome are:

  • View appointments and events in a monthly calendar,
  • Maintain a task list with comments,
  • View and edit rich-text notes and documents,
  • Manage finances with bank/cash balances.

For more on the features of taskTome and to view screenshots of the different functions, visit the features page.

So I brought it up, checked for an update, which I installed, and now I’ll start listing tasks, beginning with replacing the furnace air filter.
