On the Breaking Perfectionist Blocks episode of Nested Folders, Rosemary Orchard and I spitballed an idea to quickly generate a random list of three OmniFocus actions meeting a specific criteria (in our case, a tag).
Here is an iOS Shortcut that accomplishes exactly that. Enjoy!
Processing my OmniFocus inbox is critical for me, because I capture like a maniac, but because I am also easily distractible, processing the inbox can become hard for me, not because any single thing there is tough to deal with, but because it can be hard for me to stick with something long enough to get it done before I’m looking at the next thing.
This can quickly lead to overwhelm, which Rosemary Orchard and I discussed on episode 17 of our Nested Folders podcast.
I am (once again) in love with Drafts, and having all my text start there.
While I love the idea that Rosemary Orchard had about turning on the badge in Drafts to indicate inbox items, badges amp me up too much, and so I needed a less in-the-face method of making sure these draft Drafts don’t get lost.
There was a question on the OmniGroup Discourse Forums the other day about seeing completed items in OmniFocus, but just the last two days’ worth. While this can’t be done with Perspectives, it can be accomplished with the new Shortcuts integrations.
