Have you ever taken a look at Life Balance? That is a to do list on
steroids. I use mine all the time. It is a very flexible system. I
just wish they had a faster way of making entries (like a keyboard
button on the entry slip along with a "new" or "next" to make entry
faster). But other than those two minor annoyances it is one great
piece of software. You can organize by locations, projects, lists, and
every quickly increase the importance of a entire list/project. It can
also generate a list based on where are you are at the moment. For
example it won't suggest to go get groceries while you are at work etc.
 I can also generate a pie chart showing where your time is going and
you can set goals for the various projects.
