How can I sync Start/Due dates to iCal? [A: use "export calendar" instead.]

All I want is the items with a DUE DATE (or start date) to show up on a calendar; NOT any of my other 'todos'

Nothing I can see in the manual (1.4) seems to give enough detail. Any insights?

Email/iOS/Mailtags Question... more GTD question more than OmniFocus

I use mailtags heavily on my Mac. And OmniFocus, of course

I'd like to see some convergence of the interfaces - but I think each interface is optimized for the hardware; I think they should be different but sem to have a similar look/feel.

Any reason why you couldn't launch a separate piece of software for mind mapping? You can attach documents to given projects (perfect for mind mapping.)

It's worth noting that the people at DavidCo 'fall off the wagon' quite a bit too. Getting the review as a habit is a killer difference. It means that you are 'aware' of those things.

I think it's pretty simple.

You don't value your time. If you're quibbling over $20, then perhaps you need to adopt the GTD principles a bit more.

What I find keeps me motivated is a short GTD morning/evening review of my contexts. Really makes the difference.

Two ideas

Grant,

1) Try selecting multiple items and changing the date in the inspector
2) ONLY enter dates of things that must occur on that day (which is about GTD)
