Sunday, October 31st, 2010

When we left off in Part 4, we were getting started on the initial next actions of a “funnel timeline” project plan for addressing task date issues in MindManager 9: The goal of this series of posts is to both work through the MindManager 9 task date issue and to attempt to provide a working […]

What is the Next Action for ActivityOwner.Com?

Saturday, March 20th, 2010

Reviewing my ResultsManager review dashboard this morning I found just a couple of projects related to my “blog” area and a long list of someday/maybes.
