If you prefer OmniFocus to use a different language than the default MAC OS X system language this simple URL trick will help you.
If Evernote is your main information hub then Jefferson Stovall's post and screencast about using it as a GTD® system will be of interest.
Jefferson also provides two good reasons why Evernote is a good application to manage your actions and projects:
- Getting information into Evernote is easy, fast and almost universal.
- Evernote is fully available on almost any device. During the course of the day, I probably work on two different MacBooks, one iMac, one iPad and one iPhone. Ninety-nine percent of the time, Evernote is updated and available wherever I sit down to use it.
The implementation is in some parts simplified, but still solid and most importantly: practical. Actions and projects are notes which get filled into notebooks representing Areas of Responsibility — although Jefferson went for the least granular level here — and Contexts are implemented using tags.
Adding to Jefferson's reasons on "why Evernote" I would highlight that Evernote's search capabilities are amongst the most versatile. The setup introduced also relies on saved search strings to make GTD work in Evernote.
This screencast provides a nice overview of Jefferson's Evernote GTD setup.
You should really use Evernote more and read Evernote Essentials to master the tool. It will help tremendously getting more out of the application like implementing a similar setup.
There is a new weather app, cloud storage and photo management service to try every week, but the Total Cost of Ownership assessment needs to include other criteria than "freshness" and even price.
Curt Clifton, OmniFocus scripting veteran if I may say, updated his script which takes the current view displayed in OmniFocus and generates an OmniOutliner document from it.
Once you’ve installed the script, navigate to whatever perspective you’d like to export. You can even Focus on a particular project, or use View Options (⇧⌘V) to fine tune the display.
Useful if you want to create or share overviews of projects, for example.
Tim Stringer from LearnOmniFocus has a good overview of the most important changes and new features introduced in OmniFocus 2.1 for Mac.
In essence 2.1 exploits the new possibilities of Yosemite with a 'Today' widget, sharing extensions and also aligns to its UI design paradigm.
