Situation: You Spend WAY Too Much Time Following Up With People...

Sometimes its hard to stay on top of all of the little tasks and emails that are a huge part of managing these days.  Not everyone is good at responding, which can leave you holding the bag.  As much as you try to stay organized you end up digging through old emails as you remember things until "follow-up" completely dominates your work days.

Wrike is an interesting, very very simple tool that tasks tasks as they are assigned via email, reminds the person being tasked, and puts the onus on them to monitor and change status.  In other words, it takes offloads a huge part of the administration.  It's also free, which certainly helps.

Here's how simple it is:
- register (takes 2 minutes)
- copy wrike@wrike.com on emails that inlcude task assignments 
- organize and categorize tasks, if and when you need to, online (2-5 minutes)

I think this is one of those very simple targeted tools that solves a very common problem.  If any of this speaks to you, give it a shot!
