I use a txtfile but version it in git so I have history and a short file to work with daily.

I always wonder how your commit messages look like with a system like this? When you have a task like:

  Do the laundry
Do you then commit it with a message like:

  Added Laundry Task
Or do you have some kind of automatic commit message format?

In the first case I would feel very unproductive basically repeating myself twice every time. In the second case I would have a horrible time of deconstructing my VCS history and would question its existence in the first place. And I’m not sure that using a VCS directly as a task manager would be that productive either.
