chess project manager
New years resolution is to manage my chess time more effectively. So i am lookinmg for a simple free ware project manager. I have microsoft outlook so i already have task, calendar reminder etc. I am looking for the increased power of a project manager that i input tasks and available times and the programme schedules it, calculates if the total time you think you need fits into the time available, enters it into a schedule/calendar for a whole year or smaller time periods and reminds me if I am behind time.
Yes I know it can all be done by hand but a project manager is so much better at the maths and so much quicker.
I think the programme below does this but is not free.
I have not tried it and in no way do I recommend it.
Does anyone know of a freeware personal, not a business, project manager?

I don't know about project management software, but if I can offer an unsolicited observation, I'd say you may be a lot like me if you tend to build elaborate structures for chess study. I fight that impulse all the time, because the elaborate ones always fall apart and building and adjusting them actually takes away time from study.
Right now, I'm at the simplest I've been in a long time. I do some tactical diagrams everyday. I've worked through a couple of 300 problem books that way. I don't have the patterns imprinted in my mind as well as I'd like to yet, but I'm going to really learn those books so I have 600 patterns burned in my brain.
Then, if I get the tactical work done on any given day, I turn to the particular subject that I'm studying in addition to tactics. Endgame, openings, review my own games, strategy, game collections. These days I do only one book at a time. I lose the thread if I try to do more - my elaborate structure inevitably collapses. I'm late middle-saged and it's taken me a long time to realize I can't do everything at once!
Like I said, this was unsolicited and please ignore it if my issues don't apply to you. Whatever you do, I hope you enjoy your studies! ws
