Most people nowadays use a number of disparate applications and methods to store all of their action items, projects, and tasks. Why is it so hard to consolidate that mess into a common approach that tracks and reminds us of what needs to get done in one place? Here is a way out.
We use a Google Calendar for reminders of all sorts, we use Evernote for miscellaneous notes and rough to-do lists, we use Wunderlist for tracking our personal action items, we use paper notepads and little yellow post-it for whatever else comes to mind while on the go. All of this "organization" still leaves us with a sense of dread that we are going to forget something important.
Keeping Multiple Reminder Lists, To Do Lists, Project Tasks In Multiple Places Hinders Productivity
At the end of the day, as usual, it all boils down to human nature and our reluctance to change. Changing small things is hard enough. Changing habits as a whole is virtually impossible. However, every time we decide to make the investment in time and effort to solve messes like this, we are often surprised at the results. We usually end up asking ourselves, "How did I not notice this before?"
We continue to do things the old way because of inertia and/or laziness. So what if there is a better way? It requires learning, eliminating old ways of doing things, and making mistakes until the new way is institutionlized. But then, all of a sudden, we see the light at the end of the tunnel ... and when we come out the other side, we often are ecstatic with the results.

We often prefer to do things the old way because Change is Hard.
