On my long list of things I’d like to write, is a version of a ToDo list that helps you things you’re stuck with. Not just a list of things that you can easily manage and even get positive nudges for completing, but a tool that recognises when you’re procrastinating or perhaps stuck.
I’ve settled on a combo that works well for me; ToDoIst for a list that I work through, Due for stuff that has to ping at a certain time. I know there’s overlap between them – they shine in different ways. To complement for those tasks that just keep getting knocked back, ideally I’d have Siri pipe up now and again:
Hey Mark, looks like you’re having trouble getting round to that. Is this really a thing you need to do? Should we break it down? How do I help you get this done?
What I could do next is break down how I write this app. Or double check no-one has already, I s’pose…
