Productivity Apps

While I am in dire need to finish some of the things I am trying to accomplish I am obviously looking around for a new system that is easy to adopt, easy to keep up, is more tactile, and gives me regular feedback on my performance.

I have tried various apps but I they always make me feel like I am in a walled garden. There is hardly any flexibility and creativity available that can be seen with paper and pencil.

Eventually, I would like to move on to an software that works but for now I am using a monthly and weekly calendar to get my work done.
