I recently came across this old article on using various text files to stay organized. In the past I have tried many ToDo apps with little success. So I have been using a slightly modified version mentioned in the article with great success. One big help is some quick and dirty aliases I added to my
.bashrc file which are all kept in a directory called “daily”. You can name them as you wish. My next move is to put them in my ownCloud sync directory.
#Daily txt files I write to for various reasons alias todo='vim ~/Documents/daily/todo' alias onething='vim ~/Documents/daily/one-thing/today_$(date +%Y%m%d)' alias journal='vim ~/Documents/daily/journal/journal_$(date +%Y%m%d)' alias writedaily='vim ~/Documents/daily/write-every-day' alias ideas='vim ~/Documents/daily/ideas' alias done='vim ~/Documents/daily/done' alias actionplan='vim ~/Documents/daily/action-plan'
