Use with Mac, Use with Windows, Use on Smartphone or Watch, Use with ANY Platform!.
Michael's latest MYN Video course includes 40+ videos on how to use MYN with Todoist!
Todoist is probably the easiest way to implement the powerful MYN tasks system on any platform.
Todoist has a ton of features to help you get your Tasks and Workday under control!
In the first few videos you will be up and running with Todoist!.
In 40+ videos, Michael Linenberger shows you how to use MYN and Todoist together!
These days, Todoist might be your best choice for implementing Michael's advanced MYN task management system. In some ways, it’s even better than Outlook. Why? Because Todoist works with MYN on ALL devices.
In contrast, that’s no longer true of Outlook tasks—my previous favorite. In the last year or two, Microsoft has removed its full task module from most Outlook platforms, and has moved nearly all its products to the weaker To Do module—a module that does not work with MYN. But Todist works with MYN on all platforms!
So yes, Todoist may now be your best choice for implementing MYN!
This Video Course will teach you the complete MYN system AND teach even beginners how to use the Todoist apps, in a set of easy to watch self-study videos.
All videos are narrated by Michael Linenberger, the author of the bestseling book Total Workday Control and a widely regarded public speaker.
MYN teaches how to keep your daily to-do list short and well focused. Each urgency zone has strict size limits. See Video 5.
Using MYN's Defer-to-Review feature, all lower priority tasks are hidden till ready for reconsideration, presented at just the right time. See Video 14.
MYN's Follow-UP Tasks feature reminds you of tasks you are waiting for others to do, at just the right time to reach out to them. See Video 21.
If you've tried the Getting Things Done task methodology, MYN goes well beyond that system, fixing many of the common complaints! See Video 24.
Even if you've used Todoist before, you've never seen it used this way--in ways that will truly get to-dos under control. See ALL Videos!.
Based on the bestselling book Total Workday Control, the MYN task system is Michael Linenberger's advanced to-do list methodology that will get even the busiest workday under control. For a full description, go to this link: About MYN

MYN with Todoist really works! But in case you are wondering, here are a few questions we get.
No problem! Just send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we'll immediately refund your money. No questions asked. It's rare people don't like the videos, but we are delighted to do the refund.
This is usually becuase you did not sign into your previous qualifying product prior to clicking the Purchase button. So sign into your previous MYN course in the same browser (different tab) and then click on the Purchase button. It should work then. You must have purchased an MYN video course. The 1MTD courses do not apply to the discount. Nor do the non-super versions of the Outlook Inbox Ninja course.
If you use only Windows Desktop Outlook, and don't use tasks in Microsoft mobile apps, and don't use tasks on other platforms like a Mac or iPad, then stick with Michael's MYN Outlook courses. But if you go mobile a lot, or use a Mac, Michael recommends this new solution much more highly now.
No, not that we know of. There might be sync tools out there, but really you should plan on completely cutting over to Todoist. If you are an Outlook tasks user, then try out Todoist for a while, see if it meets your needs, and then take the plunge.
Michael still also recommends Toodledo, especially if you have more complex task management needs and want the most task features possible. But Todoist is easier to use than Toodledo, and the support from its developers is much better. Todoist's mobile apps are better too.
