MindManager Housekeeping with the ResultsManager Multi-Map Checker

Thursday, July 29th, 2010

I recently re-installed my Windows 7 operating system and moved my “data” to a D: partition. I also store my maps in a dropbox folder, which I symbolically link into my documents folder. Between these two factors, I ended up with quite a few broken links after the migration. The ResultsManager multi-map checker has several […]

forum.activityowner.com returns

Wednesday, February 24th, 2010

Back in 2007 I briefly experimented with setting up a set of discussion forums to work along side the wiki and the blog. At the time it seemed like spam was going to get out of hand, and there were better alternatives, so I turned it off. Since that time the activity levels on the […]

Auto OutLinker

Saturday, February 13th, 2010

Sometimes when faced with an inbox full of somewhat related Microsoft Outlook messages, the easiest way to proceed is to just process them all into MindManager with OutLinker and then sort them out. Steping through the messages 1 by 1 to accomplish this can be time consuming. The latest version of OutLinker has a new […]

Updated “New Project Map” (NM) tag posted

Sunday, January 17th, 2010

A MindReader power user suggested by email… Is it possible to add an extension to the nm tag to prompt to automatically run the k tag i.e. do you want to create a new link to a destination map – y/n? I use nm quite a lot but often forget to go and create a […]

Simplify your ResultsManager Map Central Strategy for 2010

Wednesday, December 30th, 2009

The typical approach to utilizing ResultsManager to harvest project and next action information from MindManager maps is to set up a central map that links out to each map of interest or to a set of “area” map centrals which links to project maps. While this approach does allow you to navigate down to particular […]

ResultsManager In-trays

Monday, December 7th, 2009

Stefan asked a question on the Yahoo GTD MindManager group: Hi all, I am using the In-tray dashboard from Gyronix’ ResultManager and AOs “In-Tray.mmbas” macro to create a map that shows a) the actions in the in trays and b) the links to the In-Trays. This way it is easy to have direct access to […]

Move MindManager map attachments to disk and replace with hyperlinks

Tuesday, November 10th, 2009

I got a request to add a feature to OutLinker to archive OutLook messages to disk rather than to a pst file. Rather than add that complexity to OutLinker, I found it easier and potentially more generally useful to create a macro that moves the 1st attachment present in selected MindManager topics to disk and […]

Elizabeth Gilbert on Creativity

Thursday, April 2nd, 2009

Elizabeth Gilbert recently gave a talk at TED on “A Different Way to Think about Creative Genius“. The subject of her talk is the stress and fear creative people experience in trying to meet the high expectations they set for themselves. While she jokes about these issues not impacting people in “non-creative” fields like engineering, […]
