Dial2Do

I’m a big fan of David Allen’s Getting Things Done and one of his mantras is to clear your mind of all the things you need to remember and to keep it clear. This may involve a post-it note (and I do keep them all round the house) or jotting it on your PDA (see previous post on Ninerpad). Sometimes you’re just not in a position to do this and I came across Dial2Do recently which offers another route. It’s an automated phone-in service which uses speech recognition to perform a variety of online tasks such as setting reminders, txting, emailing etc. So if you need to remember something simply dial up say “email”, then “me” and then speak your message CLEARLY. When you get back to your PC you’ll have a reminder sitting in your Inbox. Very handy.
