Q10: no distractions allowed

In a previous post I commented several text editors that shut the door (or the screen) to distractions.

I have had the pleasure to find yet another implementation of this idea, only it is nicer and more feature-packed (for Windows users only). The program, called Q10, has been developed by Joaquin Bernal, it's freeware and you can either install it, just extract it to a folder or carry it wherever you go as a portable app (in a USB drive.)

I really need this kind of application. Do you?

A book about to do lists

To do lists are one of the centerpieces of any organization system.
I like to see what other people do with their to do lists, for example in blogs like To-do list.

Sasha Cagen, a true to-do-list-ologist is the writer in charge of To-do list, both a magazine and the aforementioned blog. And now it's also a book, To-Do List: From Buying Milk to Finding a Soulmate, What Our Lists Reveal About Us, a collection of 100 lists and the stories behind them. Freshly published this month by Simon & Schuster.

My GTD (Getting things done) illustrations

I conceived this blog basically to share my visual side notes of the Getting things done process. My most recent posts about GTD software and related topics have “masked” the original posts.

You can access most GTDrawings in the archive of december 2005 and january 2006.

Here's a miniature with most of my sketches: this is what you will find, commented and in larger sizes, in those previous posts.
