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.1 But for now, I’m content with what I have, and that’s enough for me.
- I know that Drafts 5 is coming, and I’m sure a GoodTask 4 is as well. Both will elevate my productivity to a new level I didn’t previously have. Stay tuned for that. ↩
It’s fall – damn near winter – and that can only mean one thing: time to make my task management more complicated. I often use the summer to make my life simple, and then spend some time making things overly complicated. I’m always looking for a better way to handle my tasks. I’ve tried many task managers, and had gone through all of them. Or so I thought. I’ve had a few people suggest some apps to me, and I often think: do I really need another app? Apparently, the answer is yes. But this time feels different.
