Work Smart 2: Time Management Tips for Mac Users

Want to get organized? First you want to find a great task manager to organize all your to-do's in one place. In this week's episode, entrepreneur, student and Mac user Quintin Carlson asks for the best to-do list application to organize his busy life. There are hundreds of apps out there which can help, but I chose my top three for a Mac user, which range in price, power, and ability to sync across all his devices. Then I asked freelance tech writer Mitch Wagner for his favorite.

Special thanks to Mitch Wagner and Quintin Carlson for appearing in this episode, and to Popplet. You can download Popplet for the iPad.

    A kind of an update: as of late 2014, Things now has a cloud-based sync. In fact, Cultured Code (maker of Things) no longer supports so-called Bonjour synchronization, preferring that all customers use the cloud sync.

    For me, a key piece to being able to hit my goals and navigate the many projects and deadlines that I have has been using a Time Tracker. It was so easy and the reporting worked exceptionally well for me. In addition, effective time tracking has meant owning my time and EASY project and goal management. FYI, I use - which offers a 21-day trial at no cost. There are others out there, but this was the easiest to learn and implement.

    you can use Wunderlist... it works for ipad, iphone and mac. It syncs over the air and the best, it's free.
