Ok I fully understand now. The answer for me is yes and no. The issue I have been having and I believe many have this issue is the ubundance of information we receive in our daily lives. Many must "mutitask" at both work and home. We have work email, personal email many carry mobile phones, note pads, organizers, and some a pda also. We input information in all these mediums and worry about overlooking somthing.
The issue is all these can comunicate with one another the contacts on the computer won't syc with the ones at work you put then all in the phone but it makes you feel like your trapped in a little box, or you there comes a time when you have a contact in your phone but not on the computer. The work email and the home email won't talk.
We are all looking for that all in one solution some thought the iphone would do it, some thought the Google phone would do it, but either they miss the mark or you have to shell out extra cash to get sup stand syc and connectivity.
What we seek is an all in one fire and forget system, when someone steps up and makes that then food pushing stops and productivity begins.
I am currenty working to assemble a group to build this all in one solution. That candle all things an indiviual may consider important information and no matter where they imput it they can access it anywhere. Mac tried but they charge and you have to have an Iphone, google tried but they left out key features and making mac mail, gmail, and outlook communicate is still like bringing down the berlin wall.
All that aside we are still left to a linier methode of organizing all our data. Its time to move into mind mapping and digital file storage combined. This is what I plan to tackle.

Hope this helps,
The one tool function I feel a sore lack of is personal-scope project
management. There are plenty of individual-task managers out there,
and most of them do offer some level of grouping or hierarchical
structure, but I'm not aware of anything that really allows the user
to focus on the project level without spinning off into PMBOK-land. I
don't need Gantt charts and workgroup resource scheduling and whatnot,
but I do need an effective way to focus on a project as such. Without
that, none of the other elements of my system quite seem to work
smoothly, so I do spend a lot of time, energy, and money exploring
every new tool that comes along.
