A tool for everything

08/17/2012

I discovered Workflowy the other day and was pretty excited. Finally, a simple todo list app that works like my brain does. Just like the product video says!

And then I realized that it, like many other tools that came before it, quickly turn into a crutch. A distraction, and an excuse. What I need isn’t another app.

What I need isn’t even a devotion to plain old pen and paper for my todo list.

What I need is to face each day courageously and purposefully, prioritizing what’s important over what’s urgent, and to take my work seriously.
