I'm looking for time tracking, task tracking, or attention tracking apps that are useful enough that you found you stuck with them for at least a year - and that they changed your behavior for good. What works?

I have been using Workflowy constantly for almost two years. It is a simple but powerful site/app that allows you to build lists within indented lists. You can annotate an item, mark it as complete or add new items under it, making it a new parent node. If you're a real wizard, you can easily share a node in your lists with someone else in R/RW mode via email, so a friend can add your list to their lists. Incredible tool, free to use with a suggested $30/year donation at www.workflowy.com — thank me later!

"FollowUpThen" is an elegant tool which allows you to send a quick email to , e.g. 1day@followupthen.com and it will email you a reply then. It's an effortless way to send yourself reminders in the future.

I have used Remember The Milk for some time now and find it wonderful in its overall simplicity and versatility. I have converted my whole office and we now use for our standard office task manager.

I use Seconds Pro, which is designed as a workout timer, to manage my basketball practices. I can set each drill, select the time, and make notes. Once practice begins, I just hit start. When my phone beeps, I know there are three seconds left. A quick glance at the screen tells me the next drill for the day. I can save sets, move them from one day to the next, and easily modify them on the fly.

Next year, I plan to bring a projector on and shoot the whole shebang up on the wall of the gym. It's a brilliant app that meets my needs in a way the designers didn't imagine.
