Useful lists and where to store them

A short post as I try and get back into the way of posting here after an unavoidable pause following the death on my father (1 month ago today, R.I.P Dad)

I was reading a post by David Allen on lists and it got me thinking about how I store information within my system, as well as info I don’t have but should do!
Looking at the ideas from David, I’ve started a list of part numbers / item codes in Evernote, along with photos of some items that are difficult to describe (Try expalining that you want a nut to retain a lightshade on a GU9 fitting when you don’t know it’s a GU9 fitting!) Account details etc. live within e-wallet on my phone, netbook and desktop. I use OneNote for what I call ‘bluesky’ lists – holiday ideas, ‘i’ve thought of this now what?’ lists; the sort of things I want to keep handy but will tend to view at review times on my PC rather than when I’m out and about.
I’m not sure you can put make lists on a to-do list but a OneNote section of keyboard shortcuts and common registry hacks seems like a great idea, along with ‘stuff I’ve lent to people and really ought to get back one day’

Where do you keep your lists?

Workflow Tools

I thought I’d start with an overview of the tools I use in my personal workflow. I’ll follow this up with a series of detailed posts looking at the tools and how I use them.
Without further ado the tools I use are;

Evernote, Mindmanager and PI are used for capture of information, OneNotev for storing information. Jello acts as an Outlook front endfor task management. Dropbox allows me to sync files to allow access from diferent PCs.

More info in the detailed posts; coming soon!
