Every now and then I write here that my time management guru, Mark Forster has created a new task-management system and that it’s awesome. In fact, last April I wrote a love letter to DWM, which at the time was his latest system. And then just two months ago, I wrote about a new tweak to Autofocus that I was finding really helpful.
At the risk of looking fickle, I want to tell you about his latest. (Big surprise: I’m loving it.) Mark is always looking to improve his task-management systems. He calls this newest system SuperFocus. Believe me, it’s well named. I’ve only been using it since February 8, but yesterday I had a lot of time at my desk and SuperFocus helped me get a whole lot done.
I will write a full review of the system in the near future, but I just wanted to make you aware of it so that you can check out the rules and perhaps start using it yourself. With this system, Mark’s done a great job of addressing urgent and unfinished items. As much as I loved Autofocus, urgent items tended to get lost in it. Not so with SuperFocus.
If your task-management system isn’t cutting it for you, I urge you to check this out. It’s free, easy to implement (all you need is a notebook and pen) and, by all appearances, really effective.
