Tom and I are both endeavoring to make the most out of our time, by looking into Getting Things Done. We’ve already been using OmniFocus, and I’ve been using the idea of an Inbox folder where things go to be sorted, but in reading the book, I’m seeing how much we’re not doing.
It’s actually highly enlightening to see how much more we can do towards making the most of our time and having fewer things slip through the cracks.
It was (as David said it would be) to go through my @Inbox folder, as well as my downloads folder, and completely clear it out. Things got sorted, deleted, etc, and at the end both folders were empty.
I’m almost halfway through the book, and hoping to get the rest read before Tom and I get together in Indianapolis, so we can truly and powerfully brainstorm.
If you’re looking for a personal productivity tool, I highly recommend checking GTD out, the book, ain’t too big (which is always a damn good thing!), and the concepts are easy to implement whether it’s with pen, paper, and wireframe document holders, or using something like OmniFocus, or Things.
Hopefully this journey of productivity will bring really great things to 360|Flex events, and the phrase, “That didn’t get done?” won’t be common when Tom and I are talking anymore.
