Help please thought process. Omni+ iCal Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I understand how to use omnifocus. ( GTD)
I understand the iCal, and it is use for scheduled appointments only and that you should not put your task on the calendar.
I like to see a calendar next to my task and projects so I may determine what my schedule looks like and how to spread it out within that week or month.

After brainstorming and reviews of my omnifocus plans,
I would place my task/ projects list to the left, and my weekly calendar to the right,
Then inputting my task in the calendar places that I can see to be open and doable time and space.

I almost feel that I want an app that supplies the task management and calendar. But the other apps out there don't compare to omni's functionality.

Could someone please give me some examples of how they schedule and plan with their omnifocus and calendar on a weekly or daily practice .... Please

Thank you
If you look around the forums there are a few posts on this issue. Here's one from a couple of days ago:
Thank you Lucas. for the link.
i guess what i was looking for , is how omni-ers are doing the transition from omni to ical and making smart decisions based on real time frames.
I tend to think all of my 400 tasks are very important and urgent.
I suppose i really need to rethink my thought process.

Thank you again for the lead.
Look at the calendar and decide how many hours you have free after accounting for hard landscape items. Spend those hours working your most important items from OmniFocus. GTD is just a means of knowing what those important items are, and which of them can/should be tackled right here, right now.

You'll want to read, if you haven't already, David Allen's "Getting Things Done" book. You might also want to take a look at "Making It All Work" - I think he addresses your issue in these books.
