Begin with the End in Mind

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

…or begin with the beginning (next action) in mind. It's your choice. Whether you are following Habit 2 of the Stephen Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective People or the "Next Action" mindset of Getting things done (GTD), is all about learning to identify and break down the sequence of individual steps to get from […]

Export a MindManager Map to Microsoft Excel

Sunday, April 26th, 2009

Mind map users need to deal with the rest of the world, which lives in lists and spreadsheets. Even MindManager users themselves often have a need to look at their map context in a less graphical format for analysis or printing. Map2Excel is a simple no-frills macro for exporting a map or portion of a […]

The new "calc" tag in the GyroQ tag library provides you with a popup calculator: To install it, paste the "packed text" for the tag into GyroQ.

How long is a typical email message?

Saturday, March 14th, 2009

Awhile back an OutLinker user ran into trouble transferring a large Microsoft OutLook message into MindManager via GyroQ. We determined the shear size of the transfer was the problem.

MindReader 2.0

Saturday, February 7th, 2009

After a few weeks of shakedown and clean-up, it seems the setup.exe program created to install MindReader, Mark Task Complete, and Next Action Analysis and their associated Gyronix GyroQ tags is just about ready for prime time. If you are a MindManager user and have wanted to give these tools a try in the past, […]

Mark Tasks Complete Faster

Saturday, November 22nd, 2008

The Mark Task Complete macro evolved incrementally from a short GyroQ tag into a fairly involved macro and got inefficient along the way. The new version is streamlined and should perform quite a bit faster. If you are a regular user of this GTD tool, I'd recommend downloading it. This version also defaults to storing […]

Six Components of a GTD Review

Wednesday, April 30th, 2008

Things have gotten a bit quiet in "gyrospace" lately. Perhaps this is because folks have given up on their new year's resolutions or moved on to other tools. I'm hoping it is because we are all successfully focusing on Getting Things Done rather than tinkering with our systems and surfing blogs. After three years of […]

OutLinker 2.0

Monday, March 31st, 2008

It is actually more like version 122, but "2.0" sounds better. It has been about four months since my last post on OutLinker and I wanted to let folks know that several improvements and bug fixes have trickled onto the wiki since then. The macro now defaults to routing transfers to MindManager through GyroQ, which […]
