Regarding calendar based task management. This really makes no sense for me. I have due dates, yes, but how I use my time throughout the day is very fluid, and it would not make sense to try to put my tasks into a calendar. Calendar entries are basically times that I can’t do anything else because I have a class or meeting or social engagement. If I were to, say, write down that I will spend two hours writing in the morning, the most likely scenario is that something else will come up at that time which requires my attention and I won’t actually do the writing until the afternoon. Much more important for me is to know what I will write that day because I have some notes or an outline that will enable me to get to writing quickly without having to sit and remember what I was going to write about. But I guess everyone has very different work habits and jobs that lend themselves to different solutions.
