Remember the KISS method? You know, keep it simple, simon. Mac users who need a little help getting things done have a gazillion apps to help do the job. Some cost upwards of $100. Some are free. Most are in between.
If you’re only interested in getting one thing done each day, then you need the Mac app that’s totally focused. It’s a simple, time-based, task management app that thinks different and will help stimulate the economy.
Getting Things Done via KISS
First, this isn’t a crusade about yet another Mac app that follows David Allen’s popular GTD—getting things done method. Been there. Done that. Boy, if I only had a dime for every Mac app that promised that.
This is a one day crusade (today only) about keeping it simple. KISS.
OneThingToday is a remarkably effective little app that dares to think different by exposing the obvious—that simple is better, small is beautiful.
Or, buy this app, just add water, stir, and focus your attention on the one thing you want to do today. Voila! You’re a more productive Mac user. And, you’ve helped stimulate the economy by forking over a little hard-earned cash to learn an inexpensive lesson.
Get Something Done—Or Else
OneThingToday is based on the premise that if you focus on only one task for the day, the whole day, you’re likely to get it done.
Therefore, as in ergo, OneThingToday becomes a useful app that you use to become more productive, and your purchase thereof helps improve the economy and your life.
I know. You’re stunned by my plausible reasoning, the inspiring logic of it all. That’s all fine and dandy, but where does the rubber meet the road? So to speak.
As you can see from OneThingToday you get to view a whole week of days, and the corresponding thing to be done each day.
Unless you’re a Mac user assigned to the special class in school (and there were not that many of us), you’ll figure out right away that OneThingToday is a simple, highly focused, deliberately disciplined app.
You want more proof that this app can make your day? Click the right arrow key and get another whole week of days, each of which can be used to insert a specific personal task for that day. Click the Today button and you’re back to—don’t get ahead of me—today.
Alright, I know what you’re thinking. First, you’re thinking That’s it? Well, of course it’s not. It’s a little known secret, publicly divulged on Mac360 for the very first time, that OneThingToday can actually be populated with more than one task per day.
It’s a multi-tasking app.
Second, you’re also thinking, Hey, can’t I do the same thing with a Stickie (and that’s free)?
Well, of course you can. But Stickies are built in to OS X, therefore it’s free, and it doesn’t track your daily task or tasks like a weekly calendar. And, if you use something that’s free, how exactly are you helping to spur the economy?
After all, the guy (presumptuous on my part—it might be a small committee, or a woman named Mike, or a masochistic teenager with social issues) who developed OneThingToday devoted a lot of time and effort to come up with the concept, not to mention the app itself. Isn’t that worth something?
Regardless, OneThingToday does one thing that makes all the difference when it comes to getting things done. Focus. Click the 1 button in the right hand corner and today’s task comes into focus, hiding all the other days. Today’s task gets big and brawny on your Mac’s screen, and that will embarrass you sufficiently to get that one thing done so the reminder goes away.
That’s focus. That’s digital discipline. That’s the KISS method personified. And, you’re providing your own economic stimulus plan.
