#1 Resolution For 2010: Get ORGANIZED!

There are many things I would like to accomplish in 2010 (exercise more, lose weight, redo my website, create a new logo for myself, release some personal projects, read more books, read less feeds, get married etc.) But I can’t do any of those things unless I organize and plan my projects out more.

I’ve tried many things in the past to try and get organized including e-mailing myself, setting up a personal wiki, and various software tools. But I finally found something that works called GQueues.

GQueues is what you would get if GMail was a to-do app. With GQueues you can

  • Group tasks
  • Sync deadlines with a Google Calendar
  • Add tasks via IM for sorting later
  • Access on the go with a mobile version
  • Other GQueues features

I’ve been using it for a few weeks now and I am really happy with how easy it fits into how I work. It’s a simple organizational tool that doesn’t get in your way when you’re trying to get something done.

50 New Years Resolutions

U.S.News & World Report does an annual feature on 50 Ways To Improve Your Life. This year the multimedia team tackled a video project recruiting everyone in the office to say a few lines about each of the 50 resolutions. Here is the final product which shows many of the faces behind the weekly magazine. Watch out for me, I talk about reducing corn in your diet. Fun!
