An example of task management

Thanks for sharing your students task management system. Very impressive, far beyond everything I've ever done, which is probably why I've never been able to finish anything like a master's thesis.

Personally I use remember the milk for tasks. But I like Excel and understand what you mean about its flexibility and adaptability. Is there any chance you could post your spreadsheets on your blog?

Three types of Excel template (Monthly, Weekly and daily) are available at
