Omni2Map: Export OmniFocus to MindManager

Sunday, September 4th, 2011

As I mentioned in my earlier OmniFocus for IPad Review, I recently adopted OmniFocus as my home project management system for Getting Things Done (GTD) In the review I noted several weaknesses of the IPad app that I thought I might be able to address with a MindManager Add-in (Omni2Map). As a Windows user, I […]

OmniFocus for IPad Review

Saturday, September 3rd, 2011

As I mentioned in my last post on Declaring GTD Bankruptcy, I recently decided to switch my personal GTD system to make better use of my new Ipad 2. Why Switch? Besides the value of having to reconsider all my priorities in the migration process, the main driver was to get away from my home […]

Declaring GTD Bankruptcy

Sunday, August 28th, 2011

I would venture to guess that the typical person has at least a 100 items flow to them during the course of their day that are candidates for their to do list. These may show up by email, by phone, by mail, or by walking past an newly arrived home repair project. David Allen's Getting […]

Buttons to send topics to other maps

Sunday, May 15th, 2011

The MindReader add-in already has a button to bring up a dialog box for you to enter a destination keyword to send a topic to another map but, faced with a very full daily capture map, I thought it might be handy to have a set of buttons configured to send topics to some of […]

Update on the ActivityOwner.Com MindManager Add-ins

Sunday, March 27th, 2011

I wanted to provide an update on my project of converting tools on the activityowner.com site to MindManager Add-ins. The wiki.activityowner.com now has three independent stand-alone add-ins installs with domains that point to them: http://wiki.activityowner.com/index.php?title=MindReader, http://wiki.activityowner.com/index.php?title=Mark_Task_Complete http://map2excel.com, and of course http://wiki.activityowner.com/index.php?title=OutLinker. Each add-in is really stand-alone now and will be less intimidating for new users […]

Any Interest in an ActivityOwner Tools Add-in for the Ribbon Toolbar?

Friday, March 11th, 2011

The blog has been relatively quiet for past several months so I'm not sure how many regular readers and tool users are swinging by the site or following by email, RSS, or twitter, but here is a question: How much interest do you have in an add-in that adds an "ActivityOwner Tools" menu to the […]

Refresh your ResultsManager Dashboard 60% Faster

Sunday, January 2nd, 2011

Happy New Year everyone. First comes Black Friday, then Cyber Monday, and then GTD Sunday, the first Sunday after the new year when GTDers try to climb back onto their systems and do a reasonable weekly (or yearly) review. The key to successfully using ResultsManager for GTD is to always have the output of an […]

Focusing in on One Area of your Life

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

A ResultsManager user asked by email: "What template should I use for getting a dashboard just of high-priority projects and results that are tagged with Area X? Is that still the Next Actions by Area and Context? Or is there a better one? For example, today I’m dedicated to working just on the Area X […]
