Like a lot of people I spend my day at work using Windows. Integrating my work day into my Mac-based GTD workflow has been a challenge and a real impediment to making GTD a life habit. To that end I've developed a couple complementary tools to help me out, one for Windows and one for Mac. Together they let me add tasks and information to my GTD system from my Windows workstation with just a few simple keyboard shortcuts.

With these tools you can add tasks to OmniFocus and/or save information from emails, web pages, and other documents. The data is transferred from Windows your your Mac either with scp or via Dropbox.

See the README file for a lot more detail about these tools. I've been using them for a while now and the improvement for me is impressive. It's so easy now to hit Win-O, type "work on something", and hit enter. Done. Task quickly added to the inbox without the need to navigate around or find the right window.

Once the tools are installed and running the following actions will be a keyboard shortcut away in Windows:
  • Add a task to OmniFocus using the currently active email or web page.
  • Add a web archive to Yojimbo
  • Add a web archive to Yojimbo and a related task to OmniFocus
  • Add a bookmark to Yojimbo
  • Add a bookmark to Yojimbo and a related task to OmniFocus
  • Add a note to Yojimbo
  • Add a note to Yojimbo and a related task to OmniFocus
  • Add a task to OmniFocus using a freeform Quick Input Panel
  • Add a note to Yojimbo using a freeform Quick Input Panel

Some actions will only trigger when used within an appropriate application.
