Tim Stringer: Technically Simple
Tim Stringer of Technically Simple is one of the world’s leading experts on using task management systems and is the founder of LearnOmniFocus.com, the premier site for teaching OmniFocus users how to be as productive as possible.
In general, keep the planning and working tasks separate.
By planning first, it’s much easier to be productive when you go into worker mode.
Your task management system should collect your whens, your whats, and your ideas.
Make your task management system a sacred space.
Use due dates only when there is a consequence for not finishing something by that date.
Focus on only doing a few important tasks first, then move on to the rest of the tasks.
A morning and evening review will help you stay on top of your system.
Common mistakes: Putting too much into your task management system, overusing due dates, and tasks that aren’t immediately actionable.
