Keeping up to date with multiple calendars, tons of information and never-ending to-do lists can pose Herculean challenges if one doesn't have a proper set of tools. An effective way to solve that problem is with a well-oiled personal information manager.
However, it is not always easy to find a PIM that gives a useful set of components to handle diverse needs. I've tried PC-based solutions, mobile phone calendar and note-taking apps, as well as Web-based products like Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) Calendar augmented with Web-browser note gadgets.
None of these approaches in isolation gave me all the tools I needed without supplements when I was an active road warrior. But then I discovered Osmo, a light-weight yet hefty-featured, do-it-all PIM for my Linux desktop.
