This is a combination of three tree programs: a diary, a free-form tree database, and a "public diary" where diary or free-form entries can be shared with other users. It opens to a summary page so you know how many days left in the year, if your tasks are overdue and how long, and when you last accessed your account. It also has a list keeper, sticky notes, and tasks. It even has an extra section for biography. And a search and list function.

If you like passwords and encryption, this should be up your alley. It even has a "Quick Vault" function which collapses the program window to the tray. It's easy to navigate in this program, although I had a problem getting an icon bar for the notes, lists and goals function.
