I believe that people by nature are "future facing". This simply means that we look forward to the future, wonder what it'll be like, how we will live, and what will be different. When we're not future facing, that should warn us of a problem. It means that we have to run the diagnostics on our life to see what's wrong and get help if we need it.
I have been in search of a perfect task manager to help manage my chaotic schedule. I wanted a task manager that could integrate with a calendar as a single tool. Most task managers are great list makers but the tasks don't easily find their way to my daily planning. There should be a more natural way to schedule work through tasks. Time Blocking is a popular planning technique taught by Cal Newport. It requires a consolidated to-do list and schedule. Taskito is the only solution I have found that elegantly blocks time by creating calendar events or tasks in a beautiful timeline view. When I review the day with completed calendar and tasks, I feel a little more in control and accomplished. Taskito is currently Android only but the developers are working on a web version. Taskito syncs with Google Calendar.
