My kGTD setup

Related to today's earlier post, a number of people have written over the past few weeks with curiosity about kGTD ("Is it worth buying OmniOutliner Pro?" "Is it worth buying a Mac?" "Will I be able to vanquish all foes?"). While I'm not prepared to do a major sales presentation, I am happy to oblige the folks who wanted to see how I've set mine up. Also gives you a little window into my current contexts (as well as my atrocious personal habits).

My kGTD Setup

Now if only there would...

Now if only there would be such an application running under windows too. I hate to bring it up again, but after having been a loyal reader of 43F since the beginning, and trying out a gazillion different applications to give me a good GTD setup, I'm still coping with a less-than-ideal setup:

ePIM on a USB-stick. Don't get me wrong, ePIM is a great piece of software with a really good development cycle and ingrained beta-team, but it doesn't do the job as easy as, say an application like Tracks. But in all fairness, any GTD application that takes me to setup an application framework, a webhost and a seperate database to run, isn't going to easily work in most people's setups.

Anyhow, I digress. Conclusion: kGTD looks spiffy, wish I could testdrive it too. Oh and Merlin, your contexts don't look that shabby at all. It's all about reviewing the contexts every now and then. I do that during my weekly review. I'm setting aside 15 minutes to write down some stuff I've found out regarding how I work/deal with the GTD system. From there I see if I can (with a quick hack/change that is) improve the systematics if needs be (like splicing or combining contexts, etc).

I digress again! Good stuff, keep it up.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
