by Andreas ZellerAs a professor, I have many responsibilities and tasks to take care of, and many of these have deadlines. To keep track of them, I use an automated "To-Do"-Tracker, which allows me to enter new tasks (and ideas!) quickly, to assign categories and priorities to them, and to mark them as completed when I'm done. Most importantly, I can attach a "due date" to every task, and tell my tracker to automatically have a task pop up a few days in advance – typically the number of days I will need to complete it. So far, this works pretty well: When someone asks me whether I'd be available for a task, I can get a good assessment of my commitments (implying the answer is typically "no"); but if I commit to a task, it will almost certainly be done by its deadline.
