Good point about having all your to do items in one place. But still feel that its down to you to take ownership. You could always email yourself a reminder. What do you do about tasks emerging from meetings? Where do you keep a note of these?
An alternative to email as your tasklist is to use the TaskPad if you are an Outlook user. (You can drag and drop emails on to it to create automatically an entry).
I've also read some good reviews of products like EverNote for keeping track of tasks.
Just some other suggestions.
