Sparrow Mac Mail App

I have been using The Sparrow Mail App for quite a while now and it has taken me away from the inbuilt Mail.app. I will be covering some cool workflow and integration I have done with Sparrow in the coming months but for now, check out the intro video.

Well, I have been super busy and super productive so trying my best to share some of the great links I have been collecting over the past few weeks.

It seems like every week a new GTD or Productivity app is coming out either Web based, Client based or Mobile App based. Truly exciting times.

Hope you all have a great week ahead!

Tricking out Your OmniFocus Perspectives

This is an excellent presentation by Merlin Mann from the OmniGroup booth at Macworld 2011. This is a 56 minute presentation about how to trick out your OmniFocus perspectives.

This is a MUST SEE if you use OmnIFocus as I do.

Productivity, Motivation, and Personal Development Links – 27th March 2011

I have had a little break from this blog as I have been very busy getting things done but I am back with my usual weekly collection of links. Quite a lot has happened over the past month and I have completed two exams since my last writing so I have been busy studying and prepping for these.

Here are my collection of links for this week.

  • My first link for this week is called How to Delegate a Task in OmniFocus with Sparrow. I have been using Sparrow since it went live and must admit that it has pulled me away from Mail.app. This Apple Script is the first bit of customisation for Sparrow that makes it fit more into a GTD system. Hopefully more of these will come to make the GTD process even more streamlined.
  • My second link is to a great review of the Sparrow Mac Email client. I have a lot to write about Sparrow as I have recently switched from my beloved Mail.app to Sparrow for my email and I must admit that I am loving it!
  • My third link is to a great leadership post from Fast Company called How Do You Measure Up as a Leader? Very good post from Fast Company that is well worth a read if you have to lead people.
  • My fourth link is a link to a great How to Get Things Done with GMail post from scribd.com. I do not use the GMail web interface although I do use Gmail but this is still worth a read.
  • My fifth and last link is to an excllent review of OmniFocus and other GTD apps in a post called A Sledgehammer Called OmniFocus from Shawn Blanc.
  • This is an excellent and in-dpeth review of OmniFocus and really does provide some real pros and cons as to using a powerhouse application such as OmniFocus as part of your GTD system.

Hope you all have a great week ahead!

Productivity, Motivation, and Personal Development Links – 13th February 2011

I hope you are all ready for Valentines tomorrow? It is my wife’s birthday so we get to celebrate two things, and I do not have any excuses to miss either!

Here are my collection of links for this week.

  • My first link for this week is to a great Getting Things Done post titled The Solo Attorney’s Introduction to Getting Things Done. I do like these introductory posts to the GTD methodology and always enjoy hearing how other people are Getting Things Done.
  • My second link is to a great post from my wife titled Cherish the Moment. Now this is not truly productivity related but it is a post that teaches us the important of living where you are right now. Do not get caught up in the journey but stop and enjoy yourself where you are, right now.
  • My third link is to a post from the whole self blog called decluttering, it’s the way forward. I must admit that my wife is a master at de-cluttering and I have learned to harness the power of de-cluttering from her.
  • My fourth link is a link to a video comparison of Microsoft OneNote and Evernote. Being a Mac user, I have never used Microsoft OneNote but I do know that Evernote does everything I need it to do!
  • My fifth and last link is to a shortlist of OSX Time & Project Management Apps. Being a Mac user I found this a great list of apps I might not have known about.

Hope you all have a great week ahead!

Productivity, Motivation, and Personal Development Links – 9th January 2011

I hope all of your New Years are going well and that you are keeping ahead with any resolutions you have set.

I have had a typical busy first week back but I am looking forward to the challenges of the week ahead.

Here are my collection of links for this week.

  • My first link for this week is to great post titled How to Move From Thinking to Action from the Stress Guide 101. This is a very topical post as we are at the start of a New Year and it is true that most peoples New Years Resolutions will have already have been broke. Taking action is so important!
  • My second link is to a great post from Jeff Korhan titled How to Find Your Productivity Secrets. Some great nuggets of information in the blog post.
  • My third link is to a post titled Getting My Central Hub in Order from the Brooks Review. This covers how the author changed their productivity system for the better.
  • My fourth link is a link to a rather interesting GTD App called HubList. This is a Javascript based GTD app and it is Open Source and looks like it needs evaluating against the usual OmniFocus and Things Apps.
  • My fifth and last link is to a post from the Honest to God blog about Preparing for a Sermon with Evernote! This is a great usage scenario for Evernote and it still amazes me the variation of people and their success stories with Evernote!

Hope you all have a great week ahead!

Productivity, Motivation, and Personal Development Links – 2nd January 2011

Wishing all my readers a Happy New Year

Well, can you believe Christmas and the New Year have been and gone! You seem to spend a long time planning Christmas and then you blink and it is over.

I hope you all had great productive holidays and are feeling great and ready for the New Year.

Here are my collection of links for this week.

  • My first link for this week is to another great GTD and SpringPad post. This post was written after seeing the post I wrote about last time. I still have not fully examined SpringPad but it is on my list to look at as soon as I can in the New year.
  • My second link is to a great post from the Google SEO Master, Matt Cutts about How to Start the New Year with a Blank Inbox. This is aimed towards GMail users but it is still a great blog post from Matt Cutts.
  • My third link is to a post about Getting Things Done from the Brain of Shawn blog. Great to read the way the author is motivated into Getting Things Done in his own way.
  • My fourth link is a link to a question that was posed on LifeHacker called How Do You Get Things Done on an Airplane?. Now the juicy content is in the comments rather than the post which just serves as a question. Some great ideas of how people utilize this otherwise wasted time.
  • My fifth and last link is to a post from Gordo Byrn about Applying Your Personal Plan. This is an interesting and intelligent post that is well worth the time investment.

Hope you all have a great week ahead!
