Jamie Low: I love MindJet mind-mapping software for organizing SEO projects, taking notes, running client meetings and delivering presentations. It's capable of organizing with Gantt charts and now comes with a cloud task manager, but I find its best use is still for collaborative note taking and on-the-fly organizing. Clients usually are thrilled when they see it for the first time and it helps expedite the discovery process. Takes a bit of practice to use efficiently but it's very accessible.
Dianna Huff: Basecamp for managing my projects. Love the "to dos" feature.
Chris Savage: StatCounter, SEOmoz toolbar, Google Analytics, Authority Labs search ranking monitoring, Webmaster Tools...and more.
