Task Management Software

"This software rocks golden. Have been looking for this thingy a long time now. My search is over."

" Although I use Microsoft Outlook I found that the task tracking in your software has a better view and layout than Outlook. I like the way that icons can be used for different categories, and the different colours that are used in the main task list make it easier to get an overall picture of outstanding issues."
Christopher Jones -

Attempting too much

To-Do List Software. Main view of To-Do List Software.

Very often people attempt to do much more work than they can handle, and that leads them to feel themselves overload. If you are attempting too much at work or in any other activity, most likely you are the cause of it.


There are two main reasons why people attempt to do too much:

  • The first reason is that we underestimate how much time tasks will really take and overestimate our possibilities.
    Some people think that they will have more free time in future and don't think that they will be as busy as they are now. They don't realize that their future tasks can take more time than they expect.
    They plan a lot of tasks for a short period of time but this time is not enough to accomplish all the tasks.
    A wish for being productive all the time, insecurity outside of work, a desire to please others is other major psychological factors that cause attempting too much.

  • The second reason is that people say 'yes' to the requests more often than 'no'. Because of this, the quantity of obligations gathers and that leads to attempt to do too much.

You have to realize that you can do almost all but not everything. Choose what is really important for you. That will help you to overcome attempting too much. You will continue falling into attempting too much until you accept the fact that you cannot do everything as an axiom.
