Action Method Online
I've been looking for a good task manager lately. It's been surprisingly hard. You wouldn't think that it would be hard to find something that's beautiful, works well in a team context, and is simple and powerful, but I haven't found a lot out there. I've tried Mac apps, IOS apps, online apps, and even pen and paper, but I have never found the solution that I'm looking for — until now.
They've just unveiled a new version of Action Method Online, and I'm loving it. The Action Method is outlined in the book Making Ideas Happen, and also online. I started using this last month, and I love it.
Here's what I like:
- It's visual. I love that it uses colors and gives you more than a list so that you can really visualize what you have to do.
- It's intuitive. It doesn't take a lot to figure out how to use it. I was going in no time at all.
- It works well in a team. I like that I can delegate tasks easily and keep track of what's going on.
- It helps me focus. It allows you to choose five tasks and put them in a Focus Area. That's a great idea for setting the top things you want to accomplish that day.
