  1. List of Apps:

    3. Habitica / Momentum / Habitbull

    6.Forest / Focus keeper /

    WORKOUT

  2. Another very good habit tracking app is strides. I personally like it more than momentum since it allows more habits and features in the free version

  3. Can you PLEASE do a video on Asana and Freedcamp? I started using Freedcamp so I could have unlimited boards free but still can't get into the habit of using it and don't know how to reap the benefits to keep myself and virtual marketing team on task and on deadline. Can you also do a video on how to get all the benefits out of Evernote?

  4. You’re the type of guy that drives me crazy. I’ve only accidentally come across your videos. I can tell you’re very bright however, I thought you had it right when you had realized that all this checking around for the perfect app is not useful and you had chosen Todoist. Now it’s Wunderlist. You’re still on Evernote frigging OneNote. On habits you clearly have one down pat and I don’t think I have to day what it is. You though are on the right path is that no one tool can do it all. You need a system. I think you should apply your intelligence to that and that alone and then you’ll be free to get things done. You obviously don’t like the subscription models which are in vogue currently because people have to eat. There really is no such thing as pure freemium bu you guy buy soimething once (value for dollar) and not worry about it for quite some time. DEVONthink Pro Office, which is probably the best DB manager of the bunch can be pricey up front but it’s always developed and in the years I’ve used it I've only paid once for it. Same goes for the Hit List. It’s a long time between paid upgrades but less so for Omnifocus however, this might be beyond most people’s needs. The subscription based model – well a year passes fast. When you talk about all these differnet things though it;s like hug? What? How much? I just learned the other you recommended?. Just as an example, look at all the task managers you recommend and other than some little bell or whistle they are the same thing. That doesn’t mean you don’t have differnet components for effective system. Just not the same component switched out a dozen times to do the same thing ensuring you’ll get nothing done.
