Iím a self-confessed productivity slag. If thereís an app or tool that could potentially make my life easier, Iím keen to try it. Often Ė and ironically Ė at the expense of actually staying productive.

There are a ton of task management tools fighting for your to-do list. Some are free, some are paid. Some let you manage simple chores like your grocery list, others are industrial-scale monsters that could be used to manage an entire organisation, or my balls.

In my opinion, too many options is the downfall of many productivity apps on the market. I donít want to have to *think* when I add a task to my to-do list. Iím pretty OCD so a complicated system is just going to result in me spending more time managing my tasks, and less time working on them Ė which letís face it, is already the scourge of affiliate marketers worldwide.

Anyway, my favourite tool is Producteev. It falls in to the free category. No monies required for individual users.

If you havenít tried this thing, I highly recommend it. It can make a real difference to your work output, as well as your general stress levels and likelihood of having a mental breakdown on Monday morning (or in our case, Friday evening).

Like many task management tools, Producteev is based on the ĎGetting Things Doneí system by David Allen. If you havenít read his book, you might want to pick up that first. Itís packed with awesome tips for regaining control of your workspace and learning to prioritise.

The idea of using Producteev is that it should track not only your work projects, but every single project that you are working on in your life.

That could be learning a new language, arranging a trip abroad, or even taking your girlfriend to Prague.

I guess it somewhat removes the romance when you consider a coupleís getaway to be a Ďprojectí in your workspace. But sod it, Iíve never been a whimsical kinda guy. If the price of my sanity is treating my loved ones as blots in a task management calendar, thatís perfectly acceptable to me.

One of the reasons why I prefer Producteev over tools like Omnifocus, Nirvana and Things (all similar and occasionally great apps) is because it lets me keep up to speed with my tasks on the move. Producteev has an Android app, whereas its rivals are seemingly wedged somewhere up Appleís arse.

If you arenít using Producteev already, sign up and take it for a spin. You might like it.

If you have any cool productivity app suggestions, Iíd love to hear them. In fact Iíll probably waste my entire weekend on them.
