Using Omnifocus to be "Outcome Oriented" Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Prev Previous Post   Next Post Next
I'm rethinking how I organize my Omnifocus. Instead of lumping things into projects at the high level of the heigharchy I want to organize them in folders according to what goals I have that this action or project helps me achieve.

There are 2 problems with this:

1) Some actions actually support multiple goals. The "learn spanish" project might help me both with "Build better relationship with employees" as well as "Enhance target marketing in Mexico". If Omnifocus had tagging I could see a way to tag the same action with multiple goals but alas. I don't know how i'd resolve this issue in the way it works now. Each project can only be shown in one folder. each action can only be in one project. Any ideas?

2) One of the things I use Omnifocus for the most is to remember what i need to talk about with the many people I have regular calls with. I had a project for each person where actions where topics to discuss with them in the past. I'd like to put those topics into the goals they support instead, and use contexts to get a view of "things to talk about with bill" using a "Bill" context. What breaks there is that i use a "Waiting" context to put things on hold and get them out of my active Perspectives. If I start using contexts for specific people, then when i change them to Waiting, I lose the association with that user. Any ideas?

That was a pretty long rant, but hopefully someone gets through it and can suggest some strategies on these two topics.
