Need some help setting up repeating tasks in Omnifocus?
One of the great features of Omnifocus is the ability to have repeating tasks. Instead of ticking off a task and manually recreating the same one, as soon as you finish the task and tick it off, OmniFocus can be instructed to immediately recreate the same task for you. This is really useful for tasks you have to do repeatedly. Take the simple example of paying your rent – you can create a task each month that says “Pay rent” but this can be simplified by making the task once and setting it up to be a repeating task that shows up at the beginning of every month

Multitasking gives you an illusion of being productive?
People who multitask a lot are in fact a lot worse at filtering irrelevant information and also perform significantly worse at switching between task, compared to singletaskers.
Now most studies all point towards the fact that multitasking is very bad for us. We get less productive and skills like filtering out irrelevant information decline. Personally I had the same results without ever reading the above studies before. I put some things in place, especially with working online, to win my productivity back and ban multitasking from my workflow once and for all.

“Strategy is not only getting to point a to point b but what are you going to accomplish by going to point a to point b -Happy Caldwell”
For me one of the things missing from some so called productivity methodologies is that the purpose for getting things done gets lost in the act of getting things done.
Lee’s Week Chart aims to give you a simple way to roadmap your week so you can accomplish what you want to, not just what you need to. Each day and week get three desired outcomes. They also get a daily focus so you can decide how you want your brain working each day. Once you fill out the chart, place it next to your desk and you’re good to go. You’ll find Lee’s full instructions and a printable copy of the chart over on his blog.
