GTD in 15 minutes – A Pragmatic Guide to Getting Things Done
GTD—or “Getting things done”—is a framework for organizing and tracking your tasks and projects. Its aim is a bit higher than just “getting things done”, though. (It should have been called “Getting things done in a much better way than just letting things happen, which often turns out not to be very cool at all”.) Its aim is to make you have 100% trust in a system for collecting tasks, ideas, and projects—both vague things like “invent greatest thing ever” and concrete things like “call Ada 25 August to discuss cheesecake recipe”. Everything!

Categorizing Your BacklogCategorizing Your Backlog
Your backlog is hope. Your backlog is pain. Your backlog holds all the projects, tasks, demands, desires, and expectations you have and the world has for you. The problem is, today’s apparent emergencies are tomorrow’s waste-of-my-time.

How I Use OmniFocusHow I Use OmniFocus
OmniFocus is a first-rate task manager. It's so flexible and powerful, however, that coming up with a workflow and a set of contexts that efficiently aid the management of one's tasks can be difficult. I've fiddled with my setup for several months, completely overhauling my contexts three times--should they be time-based (Today/Tomorrow/Soon/Next Week), resource-based (Laptop/Grocery store/Printer), state-based (Home/Work/Errands/Spare time)? I've tried out several perspectives, seeing which fit into my workflow and which are disruptive or merely unhelpful. And I've experimented with the various levels of containment--folders, projects, action groups--in order to determine where they mesh with the natural hierarchy of my own tasks.Most helpfully, I've perused the OmniFocus forums, hoping to glean insight from the practices of other users. While much of that time was spent navigating around outbursts from orthodox GTDists, I managed to find and appropriate several ideas. In an effort to ease others' OmniFocus learning curve, here's how I have things set up.ContextsMy first act upon installing OF was to set up a large, complete hierarchy of contexts describing many aspects of my life. It didn't take me long to realize this in no way helped me. My difficulty lay in not having a clear idea of the identity of contexts in general. Nearly everything for which I need OmniFocus involves my job, which is basically a single large context, as I'm a programmer on one project on which I work from home. Having a single context seemed like a misuse to me, but artificial distinctions between contexts was equally ridiculous. For example, there's no reason to have a "Laptop:Photoshop" context, since there's no situation in which I'll have my laptop but /not/ Photoshop.Eventually I decided to drop all my contexts and allowed them to be created when needed, to try to figure out the contexts in which I naturally think of tasks. This led to a pretty good set -- only a few, but each had real meaning. They ended up describing a mix of states and resources:.fullpost ul, .fullpost li{line-height:85%;margin-top:2px;margin-bottom:2px;padding-top:0;padding-bottom:0;}

naming
Quickly find and replace through OmniFocus item name and notes. This script performs find-and-replace operations on all selected OmniFocus items. It searches through the project name and notes for the given strings and then replaces them with the replacement strings you specify. It can do multiple replacements simultaneously and can replace only a certain number of instances of the string, if you wish.

AppleScript to quickly set the start and/or start dates of selected OmniFocus items using natural language syntax. This script allows you to defer all selected OmniFocus items by a certain amount of time/ to a particular date and time. You can defer the start or due dates, depending on your preferences. The script can also automatically flag all deferred tasks.

support
Script to quickly access a support folder for a given OmniFocus project. This script gives you the ability to set a "support" folder in a project's notes, and will automatically open this folder in Finder (or PathFinder, if running) when you run the script. You can either set the folder path manually (not recommended; if you want to, make sure you are using the POSIX path of the desired folder), or allow the script to prompt you to select the folder (which happens automatically if you have a folder that does not already have a support folder declared in the project notes). Projects can be selected by selecting the project itself in the content area/ sidebar, or by selecting any of the project's tasks.

I and countless others rely on it every day to manage increasingly hectic lives and complex, multi-facetted projects.This script is an effort to reduce one of the largest sources of friction remaining in my OmniFocus setup: maintaining and creating projects that don't recur on even intervals, but occur frequently enough that their planning and capture becomes a time sink

Getting Things Done with Semantic Notes
Like many adopters of David Allen’s task-management methodology Getting Things Done (GTD), I tend to binge and purge. About every season, I sort through the physical and digital accumulations of previous months, try to revive my decomposing files and systems, and reinvigorate the paralyzingly procrastinated commitments of my life. Each time I resume GTD, I discover new tendencies and habits buried in my workflow. Habits that, when left unaddressed, distract or derail my productive and creative processes. To make matters worse, some of these habits only surface after I’ve implemented systems intended to encourage productivity. Merlin Mann and Dan Benjamin discussed this recently on episodes 95–97 of the Back To Work podcast. Once one passes through the “productivity porn” phase of GTD, the enormity of the method’s immersive demands sets in and it can be easy to fall behind. Especially because any failures or procrastinations appear as deeper, self-deprecating revelations about You and The-State-Of-Your-Life. Having said that, this winter, I’m back on — or is it off? — the wagon with an assortment of obsessive-compulsive techniques; this time, I’m more committed than ever to devise methods built for stamina and distance.
