New Swift To-Do List 9 released!
The new Swift To-Do List 9 is out, and it's sweet! It's now even closer to being a "super-organizer" for everything that you need to (and should) organize.

Some of the new features that I am most excited about are spreadsheets and sticky notes. Besides tracking your tasks, sometimes it's very useful to organize or track things using a spreadsheet. And Swift To-Do List 9 allows you to nicely organize it all - task lists, spreadsheets, notes and reminders.

Swift Mind Freedom launched
I just announced my new e-book. It is a method for instant relief, total control and super-efficiency. And it works great with Swift To-Do List. (In fact, it has many Swift To-Do List step-by-step how-to's.)

Wow, getting rid of 293 tasks, that's amazing! And getting the rest prioritized... that's just great.

So, do you want to build 100 tiny houses, or 1 skyscraper?
People love starting and building new projects, ideas and businesses. And all they end up with is 100 tiny, broken houses.

Story
Tagline
To-Do List Software And Productivity Obsessed Guy
Introduction
Creating the best to-do list software for Windows is my personal mission and passion. 

I also blog on productivity, motivation, being organized and being happy. Some of my posts got featured on LifeHacker, e.g. Fooling myself to work or Seriously, Stop Sabotaging Your 2012 Goals. My article Are You a Zen Coder or Distraction-Junkie? that is not just for coders, but anyone smart working with computers, is also immensely popular. Some of my post are just for developers or software business though, such as 30 books everyone in software business should read (and why).

I regularly contribute to ASPects, the monthly magazine of the Association of Software Professionals.
