When was the last time someone you heard that old saw? The saying is gone, but the feeling is the same. What are some of the organizational/productivity tips you guys have to control the torrent of information/tasks/things you want to do without creating so much overhead that productivity work becomes unproductive?
At work, I use Outlook and a tweaking of Getting Things Done and Inbox Zero (basically, everything gets dumped into categories and tasks, review it once a week, throw assorted stuff into a someday/maybe pile).
At home, everything is sort of a mess. I try to favorite things on Twitter I want to note, and have about a billion links in Chrome to recipes, articles, videos I want to look at later. I've heard good things about Evernote and Notational Velocity, but there's a Lifehacker's worth of programs, systems, tips, etc. that all sound so promising.
So how do Goodjers stay organized/productive at home and work? Any tips would be welcome.
