It’s never occurred to me to email myself with reminders. I have been known to jot reminders on the back of my hand or overalls with a biro.

I like plain old lists, and I keep coming back to them after trying heaps of specialist apps. Don’t care much whether they’re digital or plain old paper, and I currently use a mix of both.

Nothing beats a series of notebooks imo, both as a todo and a historical reference (and it never needs backing up :)).

Like [USER=34615]@Zava Design[/USER] I have Gmail always open in Chrome and also have Tasks, Calendar and Keep running in the sidebar.

I do use ‘Tasks’, mainly cause it’s just a simple list and it’s staring me in the face always.

I’ve become a fan of Keep, but I don’t use it for note taking as such. I’m constantly researching stuff on the web, instead of a million bookmarks I hit the Keep button, maybe add a short clarifying sentence then move on. I reckon it’s easier to find stuff later in keep than trawling bookmarks, plus I can ‘pin’ them or classify them easily. Every so often I have a clean out…works for me.
