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

What I really want to...

What I really want to see is GTD implemented into iCal. I searched this site and google as well, and I can't find an outline for it.

After using a couple different programs, including the excellent LifeBalance, I've decided that its just too important for me to have my action list on me at all times, and instead of buying a bulky and expensive PDA or treo (which I almost did), I'm trying to perfect it in iCal so I can simply hotkey a script (www.swedler.uhduh.com/downloads/35/iSyncMe.scpt) to launch iSync and send the iCal info over to my phone, alarms and all.

Plus, printing in iCal is getting better and better. In case you haven't looked recently, there's a setting in the print dialog that lets you print everything or certain things directly to a 3x5 card, for all you hipster guys out there.

Also, iCal is integrated with everything on my system, and there are plenty of apps being developed around it, so if someone had a good outline for using GTD in iCal, I'd love to see it.

In the meantime, if I get mine perfected, I'll send it in to Merlin.

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. »
