If you’re looking for a simple way to make use of contexts and tags in Wunderlist, read on.
I came across this blog post yesterday about a ‘hidden’ feature of Hazel. The ability to create nested conditions will really make my life easier.
Email client applications are all much of a muchness; some do more than others with tagging, highlighting and rules, but in the main they ultimately allow you to read email.
From a ‘Getting Things Done‘ (GTD) perspective, email has been the one ‘inbox’ (in the sense of GTD) that has been incongruous to the rest in my system; I’ve found it really difficult to smoothly integrate emails in my inbox into my GTD workflow.
If, like me, you use mail rules a lot in Apple Mail, you’ll be thankful for this nugget of information from George Coghill.
I thought it was worth bringing the update that I’ve made to this blog post to your attention.
In a nutshell, there’s nothing to worry about and everything still works exactly the same as it did.
I just love how the tech around me makes doing the nitty-gritty work less time-consuming.
I was recently drawn to a photo of David Allen’s home office space, as posted on the GTD Times blog. I took a good look at the photo and started to think about my workspace and what its setup said about me.
Here’s what’d be really excellent – if my favourite Pomodoro application and my favourite Task Management application would combine forces.
I use the Pomodoro application to manage my time-boxing and Wunderlist for my To-dos. What I’m lacking is the ability to fully manage my pomodori online – currently, if one’s truly following the Pomodoro technique – I have to write each task down on a piece of paper (I use index cards for no reason other than I have several spare boxes since we moved our sprint planning online) indicating how many Pomodori I think it’s going to take. And then I use the Pomodoro application to record success, failure and interruptions.
Now, if Wunderlist included the ability to mark up each task with the number of pomodori and then run the pomodori, recording interruptions, etc., I’d be a really happy chappy.
