However, some time last year I ran into a problem: the way I dealt with my todo notes was no longer working for me. I used a todo text file that I simply always had open in my text editor that, because of my work, I also always had open. I changed text editors (for unrelated reasons) to a project based one. Having a separate tab for my todo text file was no longer easily possible, and I found myself keeping the old text editor open alongside it. Slowly I started using it less, forgetting to save, and eventually not looking at my todo as much as I should.
