ThinkingRock and GTD

If you have read this blog for long you have probably guessed that I am a proponent of "working smarter not harder."  To that end I keep testing to-do software trying to find the interface that is pleasing to the eye, intuitive, and flexible...and while I have used a variety of programs over the years I keep testing hoping that someday one of them will more closely match my work style.

Well my new favorite is ThinkingRock a great donationware program from our friends downunder.  What I like about this little program...aside from the fact that it is a little program that will even run from a USB drive, is the overall design.  To use ThinkingRock you do a brain dump by collecting your thoughts with a description and assigning a topic, if you want.  Then you can process your thoughts by creating and/or assigning them to a project, giving them due dates or marking for inactivity (I used this code for research ideas), and even deciding what would be a successful outcome of the action.  And if you are like me, and you reorganize things periodically, you will like that every field is editable.  So you can move an activity to a different project or change any of the fields to match changes in your environment.

This is a very cool program, I've been really I suggest you check it out and see if it works for you too.
