We’ve started the second season… series… whatever of the show. This entire run will be focused mainly on task management. It won’t be about the apps we use, but rather the feelings behind the how, why, and what of our task management. We’re really excited about it, and we hope you are too.
If you’re interested, feel free to give it a listen wherever you get your iTunes podcasts, or give it a listen below. You may need to reload without content blockers to show the mini-player below. (Note: this podcast does – for a reason – contain the explicit tag. Not recommended for listening around your kids. You’ve been warned.)
Just testing more. This time from the app. But not the app I want to use. Yet.
Going to try and start doing more status updates. I’m not sure it will be every day or all that often. But more than the past. Which is zero. We’ll see how this goes…
I’m usually stir-crazy when I use something for so long. I get antsy about what I’m doing, feel the need to change it all up, and try new things. But every-so-often, I end up finding that perfect blend of things that I need. I finally feel like I’ve hit a sweet spot for my task management workflow.
There have been changes that have lead to this: first, I strengthened my use of Drafts for trusted capture; this has allowed me to have one central place to enter everything and is engrained in my muscle memory. Then, I focused on how I get my information on a daily basis, which led me to the use of Reminders and the Siri Watch Face. I can use the Apple Watch as a tool to see what is coming next and focus my attention on my next action; I’ve even started using the Siri watch face in conjunction with my calendar, so that I can better map out my day. And when I started using the very surprising GoodTask, it has all come together in a great new package.
I don’t feel the need to change anything, and I’m sure I could improve my workflow by automating it a bit more. I just don’t feel like moving around apps and finding something else to distract me from what I’m doing. I’m sure there are some things that will change in the future. But for now, I’m content with what I have, and that’s enough for me.
