In a post on productivity tools, Geekpreneur outlined what might go into a personal dashboard. I've used LifeTick for sometime now and am fairly happy with it. I use it to track some personal items, but also my writing and speaking commitments, large projects at work, and general professional housekeeping (website updates, etc...). It's helped. I drop fewer items, and I feel like I can worry less about forgetting to get something done. That frees me up to focus on the task I'm currently doing.
