I’ve never really gotten into “productivity” apps. Typically my email inbox and calendar combine as my to-do list. Anything in the main inbox still needs to be dealt with. Anything else shows up as a reminder when I need it to. Literally everything work related lives in 1-2 work applications. I intentionally don’t integrate those with my home life. Sometimes I’ll keep a scratch note open in VS code but rarely do I save anything there.

I used to have an Evernote account with work notes and home notes, and found it impossible to not sometimes be distracted by the work notes outside of work.

Now I keep anything note-like completely separate. Every once in a while I send a specific thing from one world to the other, like additions I come up with for dotfiles, but otherwise it's so much better keeping things separate.
