yes

whpalmer4--beautifully said! The problem I've had with ignoring the context label is that it's labelled "context"! I couldn't see past that, till this post helped.

By using it as an axis, as you...

Thanks

for the detailed explanation of how you're doing this. Completely works for me (in my mind--haven't tried it yet!), for the same reasons you point out. True contexts are few a far between and the...

I am not alone!

Man, this was a breath of fresh air to read!

I keep pulling away from OF, and veering back. I've grown very fond of Workflowy's simple, fast tags, which I've been using for Today, This Week, This...

Sure, I can see the logic of keeping a list outside of your work list. But one of my examples actually is a work list: articles to write.

I suppose a single action list within OmniFocus may be the...

Is a LIST of context or a project?

I know there's always an argument for each side, but how would you classify a list of similar items: a list of books to read, a list of articles to write, a list of places to visit...?

Alway like...

This is the one thing that keeps me from using OF. I want to be able to run through the tasks and flag certain task to do NOW.

It's way too fussy to have to open each one individually, then close...

Easier way to set flags?

On the iphone, I wish there were a way to run down the list of tasks and quickly switch the flag on or off.

The only way I can see to do it is to open each task individually, toggle the flag,...

Mark Forster to the rescue

Forster's AutoFocus system is basically an algorithm for going through a long list of tasks. http://www.markforster.net/ for directions. (It's free).

I keep going back to it, even while trying to...

You should mention this over at the Mark Forster site--I get the feeling those folks are more interested in possible use of OmniFocus, than the folks here are interested in AutoFocus!

Thanks for posting this. I'm a big fan of the AutoFocus and keep trying to shoehorn in into OF. I'm going to try your perspectives.

Since you seem to know the basics of the SuperFocus system, I won't try to convert you here, but just show you how I have it set up. I'm about 75% satisfied with this, but I feel that OF (or...

Power Delete!

I know there are some folks here who use (or have toyed with) Mark Forster's SuperFocus (http://www.markforster.net/blog/2011/2/10/rules-for-superfocus.html) system.

I like everything about it...

Consider "SuperFocus" method

As mentioned here a few times in the past, Mark Forster's SuperFocus (used to just be called AutoFocus) uses a very different approach to tasks than GTD--the biggest feature, to me, is it's built in...

Calendar view is useful when a task that's part of a OF project really does have a must-do date.

"Prepare for concert" is an OF Project with lots of little tasks. "Pick up tuxedo from tailor" must...

For the way my brain works, I like to have a few big goals for the month, from which I choose one or two for the week, from which I choose tasks for today (and maybe plan ahead for...

Isn't it an even shorter shortcut to leave of the PLUS sign? When I enter simply 2d, OF expands that to today-plus-two, and that seems to work for all the other shortcuts you gave.
