Revisiting Things

May 6, 2010

Mac users who are serious about keeping on top of their tasks are blessed to have two great apps to choose from: Things and OmniFocus. Judging by how many people find this site by searching for “OmniFocus vs. Things”, this is an ongoing debate, and not an easy decision for many. When I first posted […]

contexts: waiting

March 2, 2009

This is part of a series on Contexts where I explore some of the unique contexts I’ve been working with in my GTD system. Thinking I would spice up this post with an image, I did an image search on the word waiting. Not the most exciting search I’ve ever done — images of sterile […]

contexts: weekly review

January 29, 2009

This is part of a series on Contexts where I explore some of the unique contexts I’ve been working with in my GTD system.

omnifocus for iphone!

June 10, 2008

Some of my favorite news out of WWDC this week — OmniGroup is offering some more info about OmniFocus for the iPhone. My favorite feature: “Synchronized with your Mac via .Mac or WebDAV. Live. Automatically.” I had every reason to expect that OmniGroup would get this right, and they did. They offer some screenshots and […]

to-do guidelines

July 31, 2006

Since I’ve been on the topic of getting rid of clutter and getting things done, here is a list of to-do guidelines I scratched out a year or so ago to transfer to my computer. Ironically, I found it in a pile on my desk. 🙂 Most of these had some form of their origin […]
