A couple of years ago, I shared how I take meeting notes with a standard form I created. While that post is still one of the most-visited on 512, I thought it was time to revisit the topic after receiving several questions about my notebook of choice: I know that Field Notes are super popular […]

I just linked to it on my popular blog. I signed up for an account. I probably won’t ever use it, because OmniFocus Mail Drop works well for me when it comes to reminding me to deal with my email.
Be still, my heart.
Michael Schechter: As you you start toying with contexts or looking at the way others create their own, there’s really no right or wrong way to go about this. It’s more about finding what works best for you and what doesn’t. In my case, I needed to boil everything down as far as I could; […]
Over the last several months, the number of projects I’m overseeing at work has changed more times than I can begin to count. One of the many side effects of this is that my OmniFocus project list — and overall organization — went to hell pretty quickly. About a month ago, I reverted to using Remember […]
Sven Fechner was kind enough to invite to write a guest post for awesome blog, so I decided to use his platform to make a confession about my GTD system.
Michael Schechter is King of the Nerds today.
Viticci’s hacked together some real nice OmniFocus reminder action.

Brett Kelly: OmniFocus makes me a better person because it reminds me to do things, even if they need to be done at a date and time considerably later than when I realize they need to be done. I agree with Brett on this. I have a lot of unusual things in OmniFocus to help […]
With talk of the Things beta today, I decided not to spend much time with it, and instead re-work my OmniFocus theme. I’m pretty happy with how it came out: (Click on the image to see a larger version.) It’s all set in Helvetica Neue, and uses burgundy and brown for due and “due soon” […]
David has put all of wonderful videos on one webpage. If you’re serious about OmniFocus, you need to spend some time on it.
Back in April, I wrote: Living with OmniFocus is like having a garden. If you don’t take care of it, weeds take over and ruin it, choking out anything healthy. But if you tend it carefully, it will provide you with beautiful, bountiful results that are delightful. I didn’t share then about how I keep […]
Back in September, I shared the “Capture Form” I created to take notes in meetings. I’ve been using this form consistently, but have come to a point where my system breaks down when moving from the paper to my computer. Things aren’t making it in to OmniFocus, iCal, etc. Additionally, in some meetings, I have […]
The ability to have reminders sync via iCloud to iCal on the Mac is a welcome addition to iOS 5. However, this system isn’t nearly as good as it could be. I set out to try to replicate the core functions of OmniFocus I use. They are: Tasks arranged into groups Due dates and times […]
