Ah, that’s very much the Honest CRIMPer, Steve!

Let’s face it, if we were all Very Disciplined, we would all have found one system and be sticking with it.

But I like to think our visionary/idealistic tendencies outweigh any minor flaw such as a lack of discipline…

Hi Alexander! Nice to “see” you again!

Wow, yes, kantree is lovely - I have great respect for kanban-style approaches, but haven’t found any multi-platform variant that really works well (i.e. offers multiple perspectives - including calendar - plus simple notes, subtasks etc. and syncs across desktop and mobile devices). I’ve been playing with Kanbanier on Mac and iOS, but it’s rather limited in its current incarnation. Kantree is, unfortunately, online only, which is a bit sad…

Gingko is pretty cool as a task management app, but it’s not optimised for that purpose. However, I’ve experimented with that as well.

Another interesting (alas, online only) tool is Barvas https://www.barvas.com/ from the makers of the mindmap desktop software MindGenius. The commercial version has recently been launched, and integrates mindmapping, kanban style task management and, since one week, timelining (Gantt charts).

Barvas seems similar to Concept Draw’s suite—desktop apps with cross-app integration: Concept Draw MindMap, Draw, and Project—and online Concept Draw Plan team collaboration.  Good products—rather pricey.

Not all systems are created equal, nor is it possible for all to suit everybody. I’ve been reading a lot about ADHD in the last months, and am fully convinced that the term ‘lack of discipline’ is most often used in an oversimplified manner—please note that I am not implying that discipline should be underestimated, only that it should be put in context.

In parallel to my readings, I attended an online course based on the teachings of top executive coach Marshall Goldsmith. Here’s a relevant direct quote from him: “We grossly underestimate our need for help and our need for structure. Self-discipline is greatly overrated. We all tend to be close, we all tend to become depleted, tired.”

Spurred by the course and some other readings, I found my way to Dr BJ Fogg’s Tiny Habits method http://tinyhabits.com/ which I can’t recommend highly enough; it gives an ‘undisciplined’ person a whole new perspective.
