    Andrew J. Mason manages multiple areas of responsibility with relaxed focus. He has a day job in communications, several freelance clients, and a growing family. He describes his journey starting, then restarting GTD. As a self-confessed "to-do list junkie," he has tried OmniFocus, Things, and other apps. His current list manager is 2DO for projects and next actions, Fantastical for calendar, Airmail for email, and OneNote for reference. Even though it's not clear when he sleeps, you'll hear him describe a typical day, waking up to a checklist. And later you'll learn how his up-to-date inventory of commitments allows him to spontaneously choose to do something that is not on any list.

    On his rec i downloaded 2do. I'm struggling with creating a checklist that repeats at a certain time. Can you ask him to write up how he created that? It is a great idea especially for brain dead mornings.

    Hey there Suzanna,

    I'd be happy to share more detail if need be, but I've attached a screenshot where those changes are made. The "start time" is when the checklist will show up in your lists. The "due time" is when it will be due (duh :). and the "notification time" (clock icon) is when you can have it show up on your phone's alerts and jump in front of your face on the lock screen. Hope that helps!
