What is the easiest way to create a work flow in SharePoint 2010 to email users when their assigned tasks and due in 5 days, due today, and overdue?

I tried making the following work flow without success:

If Current Item:Due Date is less than Today
Email Curent Item:Assigned To

Create a computed field to subtract the due date from today.

When an item is created start a workflow that examines this field and checks to see if it's 5, equal to 0, or less than 0.  If so, send an email, then pause the workflow for 24 hours.

Remember to have a field that the workflow checks to see if the task is complete, if so, stop the workflow.
