Wow, that is too funny (and a good insight).

I have done that at times, with both OneNote and Evernote. Both work well for that sort of thing. Evernote is in the cloud by default, so it is easy to fire up the app on your phone and add a few notes here and there. OneNote can be in the cloud if you use Skydrive to save your notebooks. I use OneNote all the time at work, so I tend to drift towards that, but Evernote is free.

After reading this comment, I had it in the back of my mind to check out Trello.

I have done that now. I love it! I used to keep a Word document open with a list of tasks that I wanted to get done in a game. Now I make a Trello list. Awesome :)

And, if I ever get a big enough project that I have to add people to it, I have a way to do that easily now too. Thanks for the link Verahta!

Trello is awesome, and so is Google Keep for sticky notes.
