Does your email inbox rule your life? Supercharge it with FollowUpThen. While my kids think email is old-fashioned, it’s still how a lot of work gets done. I’ve outsourced my brain to Gmail. It’s so easy to search, I email myself notes all the time. I’ve recently found a new tool that turns my email inbox into a powerful reminder and to-do list. It’s called FollowUpThen, and everything is done via email to followupthen.com. Here’s how it works. Let’s say I want to remember to renew my car registration in three months.

If you copy a FollowUpThen address in a message to a friend, you both will get the reminder. It’s great. And if FollowUpThen is too long to type, you’ll love the short version.
