Productivity, Motivation, and Personal Development Links – 19th December 2010

This is the last weekly post before Christmas! Cannot believe it has come around so quick.

Nearly got all my shopping done. Just a few last minute gifts to get tomorrow from the shops so lets see what happens!

Here are my collection of links for this week.

  • My first link for this week is to a great post from Dan Gold about how he uses Springpad and Evernote to Get Things Done. I love Evernote and I have SpringPad but must admit I need to use it more and I just might after seeing this post!
  • My second link is to a great post from the Evernote Blog about Making the transition from Delicious to Evernote. Yahoo announced they may be closing the door on Delicious so now is the time to start migrating your bookmarks away. This post shows you how you can achieve this with Evernote.
  • My third link is to a post about how to turn email into OmniFocus actions. This is from the official OmniFocus forums and covers a recent release of OmniFocus.
  • My fourth link is a link to a great collection of the Top 5 OmniFocus Applescripts. If you use OmniFocus as I do, then these are a must so check the post out.
  • My fifth and last link is to a nice little post about Blending Pomodoro and GTD. Nice little post that looks at how you can take the best parts of each methodology to blend them together into something cool.

Hope you all have a great week ahead!

Productivity, Motivation, and Personal Development Links – 12th December 2010

I said I would continue with these posts and I am back. I managed to break the bad habit of not posting these regular links.

I have been collecting some great links this week from my usual sources.

For those of you not doing, be sure to Follow me on Twitter and add me as a friend on Facebook. You can also follow my Wife on Twitter and be her Facebook friend too to keep up with my blog and also my Wife’s blog about parenting and lifestyle.

Here are my collection of links for this week.

  • My first link for this week is to a great post titled Positive Procrastination: Getting Stuff Done, Intuitively from the Owning Pink blog. This is a great post that is very well written and provides some great ideas.
  • My second link is to a nice little post titled Celebrate the little successes. This post looks at setting ourselves smaller goals and celebrating these in order to put yourself into the achieving mindset for the larger goals.
  • My third link is to a post from Mashable about How Evernote Turned Note Taking Into a $10 Million Business. This has been a very well read and re-tweeted article this week that coincided with Evernote CEO, Phil Libin doing a presentation at LeWeb in Paris.
  • My fourth link is a link to a great AppleScript that enables you to Create OmniFocus tasks in Entourage. I personally prefer Mail.app but I know a lot of people use Microsoft Entourage so this is worth checking out.
  • My fifth and last link is to a nice little post from GTD Times titled Getting Things Done in the Shower. Neat little idea to use a Scuba diving waterproof slate in the shower to capture your thoughts if you are the type of person who thinks their best thoughts whilst showering.

Hope you all have a great week ahead!

Productivity, Motivation, and Personal Development Links – 24th October 2010

Apologies, work dictated that I took a break from my usual posts as I have been rather busy and to be honest, I still am, so there has been an unfamiliar break in the frequency of my posts.

Good thing is that I have learned some new angles on productivity and I am back!

Here are my collection of links for this week.

  • My fourth link is a link to a very detailed overview of Getting Things Done with Evernote. I am not kidding when I say I use Evernote every single day! Check out this post to see how the author utilises Evernote to Get Things Done.
  • My fifth and last link is to part 13 of a 14 part series from the Simple Dollar where they are discussing the Getting Things Done book by David Allen.

Productivity, Motivation, and Personal Development Links – 1st August 2010

I am currently in Italy enjoying the sun and this post has been written before I left.

I am currently sat here waiting for OmniFocus for the iPad to be approved in the App store before I leave on vacation. I was hoping to review it before I go away but now I just hope that I get it!

I am guessing that by the time you read this it has been launched.

Here are my collection of links for this week.

  • My first link for this week is to OmniFocus for the iPad. This has been my most anticipated app for the iPad and even though I have not yet seen it (as this post is scheduled) I am sure it is awesome!.
  • My second link is a post looking at the Causes of Difficulty Getting Things Done. It is fair to say that more people fail at productivity than who achieve a productive lifestyle and this post tries to look at why this happens.
  • My third link is to an interesting post covering The Hit List, the Mac GTD Application. The post is titled Forget what you need to do, with confidence! and it is well worth the time investment.
  • My fourth link is a link to a post stating why Evernote is a Lifesaver for the blog author. I agree, Evernote is a lifesaver for me too!
  • My fifth and last link is to part 8 of a 14 part series from the Simple Dollar where they are discussing the Getting Things Done book by David Allen. This fourth installment is titled Getting Things Done: Keeping Your System Functional. This is an excellent series and well worth the time investment.

Hope you all have a great week ahead!
