I use 2Do as my general task manager. Trello as a way to manage projects and track which ideas & things I am learning now. I love that Trello allows focusing in on cards so I can only see the cards I am working on now and nothing else.
I also use 2Do to schedule a weekly task to reflect on the week passed & plan ahead.
I schedule events in my calendar and plan the day/week in context of my tasks & priorities.
I try to limit the scope and number of projects I am working on at any given time to a minimum and give all my mental energy into completing each project to the best of quality.
I use & build tools to make the process of completing my tasks as smooth as it can be.
You can't manage projects. You can only manage actions related to projects.
Brains aren’t for holding info, they’re for thinking. So if you can empty your brain out by writing stuff onto a todo list, onto your calendar, etc, your brain will have more space for the high level stuff that’s a bit harder to get on paper. And if you wrote down “do thing” on the todo-list… well you just have to do the thing afterwards. There’s nothing to think about or redigest if you write out the things in more detail
Shipping vs. Fiddling - Sometimes it's best to focus on getting things done and not fighting the tools/software.
