TreeSheets. Getting Things Done [GTD] on the Internet. Mind Mapping. Five Best Mind Mapping Tools. Hive Five: Five Best Mind Mapping Applications. Are there any programs out there that allow a person to create a series of steps to accomplish a task type thing?
Example: 8 steps to bake cookies. Mix dry ingredients, melt butter in bowl, add dry ingredients, mix at low speed, poor into pan, bake at 325 for 30 minutes, cut brownies, eat and enjoy. But let's say at the 2nd step, to melt the butter, you had to use an acetylene torch (it's really tough butter). Operating a torch isn't something most people have experience with so there are more detailed instructions below, for those who need them. I tried FreeMind and XMind and while you could sorta force it to do something like that, it would be better if it was a series of collapsible steps, rather than a mind map where everything had to hover around the middle. And, like the other poster who wanted it, I'd like to be able to easily link in another thought anywhere in the map.
Any help is greatly appreciated. The Perfect Mess. In an interview with Michael McLaughlin published in The New Writer’s Handbook (2007), Eric Abrahamson, co-author of A Perfect Mess: The Hidden Benefits of Disorder, says.

Truth be told, however, this might not necessarily be the case. How to Declutter an Entire Room in One Go. Post written by Leo Babauta.
Follow me on Twitter. My family is moving to another house this coming weekend, and to prepare for the move, we’re going through the entire house and getting rid of stuff we don’t need. The new house has much less storage, which I’ve decided is a blessing: it means we have to cut things down to the essentials. I’m pretty good at keeping things simple, but things tend to accumulate over time (especially in the kids’ rooms!). ATPM 13.02 - Next Actions: A Survey of the GTD App Landscape. The 2001 publication of David Allen’s Getting Things Done stirred a revolution of organized, productive work environments for thousands.
Allen’s system, affectionately known as “GTD” to those in the know, provides a framework for managing tasks, projects, goals, and, indeed, much of one’s life. As the GTD system spread in usage and popularity, dozens of tools and writings arose as a part of the GTD sub-culture. Blogs such as 43Folders and LifeHacker devote a significant amount of attention to implementing the GTD system.
Thunderbird gets GTD'd... « searching4arcadia. A few things came together for me this past weekend, and I thought I’d share a bit.
First, was MerlinMann’s discussion of the usefulness (or lack thereof) of e-mail folders. I agree completely with Merlin on this one- and I feel a hint of a running thread here- focus on The Work and not on Organization. After all it is “Getting Things Done” not “Organizing Things Nicely”.

In my ongoing search for the ultimate software system for use with the Getting Things Done methodology, I've recently come across a real winner.
Tracks is a web application that was built from the ground up for the purposes of implementing a GTD system. Written in Ruby on Rails, Tracks offers the familiar Projects and Contexts organization system made popular by David Allen's Getting Things Done system, coupled with the sparse graphical design and easy functionality made popular by well-known Ruby on Rails applications like Backpack, Basecamp and Ta-Da List.
Now I should mention that Tracks is not affiliated in any way with 37 Signals (the maker of the other three web applications I mentioned), but it's clear that the Tracks developers are inspired by what 37 Signals have done. Plus, I'm sure it doesn't hurt that Rails was released by 37 Signals as a framework with which to get productive with Ruby very quickly. GOE: Getting Organized Experiment Programs 2007.
