I'm in serious need of an efficient means to organize my daily "action items"...

I'm constantly inundated with requests from clients, colleagues, and otherwise. I have to track my time at work at an extremely granular level as we often bill by the hour. I've found that often some of these requests simply never register in my head and are consequently ignored. I need something to organize all my "to dos"/"action items" that is extremely easy, quick, and clean. I have a laptop, iPAQ, Palm, several organizers, ad nauseum, but nothing seems to work for me. I even wrote my own software for my iPAQ and my Samsung 8500 cell phone called TMS (Time Management System), but I stopped developing it as I had no time...

Perhaps I just have ADD? :D

Help! I know there are people like me out there...

I like using the "tasks" feature of outlook/exchange.

I can set priorities, nag messages, and follow up dates. I can log my work(with hours) into the notes section of tasks. I can assign colors to different clients/sites/whatever.

Pretty handy.
