You need a to-do list, not a philosophy about organizing your life.

Why should you spend a week just figuring out how to plan out every detail of your life? The point of a to-do list is to save time, not waste it. So don't waste your time!

Just a to-do list.

Get 'em Done ToDo is only a to-do list. It's not a project management program; it's not a personal database; it's not an alarm application; and it's not a planner.

Get 'em Done is just a to-do list program!

You've probably seen a few other to-do applications. You've seen their screenshots, showing you five million different features and icons, with fancy graphs and trees, and all that stuff. Frankly, I saw that too, which is why I designed Get 'em Done. I didn't have time to learn all of those bells and whistles, and I doubted I had any use for them. I bet you don't, either.

No Hassle. Get started in five minutes.

From download-to-list will take you all of five minutes, and you'll be on your way to getting your tasks under control. Maybe ten minutes if you decide to read the help file, which you can probably ignore.

That's because I wrote Get 'em Done to stay out of your way. All it does is give you an easy way to enter in your upcoming tasks and view them. When you're done with a task, you mark it complete. Sure, you can do a few more things, but that's the gist of it. Isn't that what you need?

Download it now and try it out. It's a free 30-day evaluation. If you like it, you pay me $9.95 for making your life easier. If you don't like it, and think I'm off-base with my "less is more" approach, then you just uninstall it. No hard feelings.

There's no big secret to an effective to-do list.

I've got a secret for you: there is no secret! I've seen the 300 page books and all those fancy "organize your life" programs. But why do you need to spend half your life organizing it? I don't, and I don't think you do either.

All you really need to do is have one central location where you store your upcoming tasks. You might want to categorize them and give them deadlines or priorities. You'll want to be able to view them quickly. Most importantly, you want this to be an easy process that doesn't make you dread getting organized.

A to-do list is a means of reminding yourself what you need to do, so that you don't feel overwhelmed. It's simple: if you're not sure how much work you have to do, you are going to feel like you have too much. If you have it all listed out in front of you, you can easily take it piece-by-piece and conquer your task list.

That's what Get 'em Done is for. I needed it, so I designed it. It's simple. It's fast. It's not feature-bloated. It may not look like a Star Trek space ship control console, but who has time to learn how to pilot the USS Organized? I don't. You don't. So don't.
