How do you manage your tasks?

Man it has been crazy here the last few months and just when I think things are going to calm down a bit, it gets worse. I have been using Leopard Mail to manage my tasks and I am starting to think it might be a good idea to get a bit more organised with my tasks and managing them. One of the worst sensations is realising that something major has slipped through the cracks.

So I guess my question is how best to get my stuff done? Do I suck it up, stick to my task list in Mail (my iCal list is just not doing it for me) or do I look at something more specific? OmniGroup has OmniFocus which I tried out in the early days and couldn’t quite get the hang of (I keep meaning to but haven’t read Getting Things Done yet – ironic, isn’t it). I am thinking I should maybe give it another try?

What do you think? What works best for you?

Update: I started using OmniFocus on a trial basis this morning and I enjoyed using it. I noticed I had some cash available so I bought the special OmniOutliner Pro upgrade license (OOP licensees get a discount on OmniFocus licenses). It isn’t cheap but, touch wood, I will use it regularly and be better organised … I don’t really have a choice.
