For some time now I am aware of David Allen’s „Getting Things Done“ (GTD) method of organising one’s tasks. I read bits and pieces here and there on the web, especially on Tim Gaden’s blog Hawk Wings, a website full of tips and add-ons to make Apple Mail even better. But I did not pay too much attention to GTD cause I was too busy with my tasks — duh.
Just when I had decided that I needed to do something about my being stressed out my colleague Marko Brunzel — and just on a side note — pointed me to a clever new tool he just had heard about, a tool called OmniFous. He could not try it out himself because it is only available on Mac OS X, but told me that OmniFocus implements GTD. I ordered the book at amazon.com and downloaded the current version of OmniFocus, which is currently in late alpha state but scheduled to be released on January 8, 2008. The program is already quite stable and fun to use (as all of Omni Group’s software). Try it out!
Now I go back to reading and learning more about GTD. This task was actionable, next on my list, and is now done. 🙂
