The following describes several points on how I use OmniFocus to develop and maintain all the endeavors I enjoy. My workflow is built upon a simple principle: I wish to see what is relevant to me now; Anything else, should be out of sight. To this end, flagged tasks are meant for today. Selecting the Flagged Perspective, built into the program, then presents them: Besides the use of flags, there are several other components that help me to streamline my work. In that task, I have a link to a file that lists several individual exercises.

This way, instead of having 10 different tasks repeating every day, I just have one. Creating Repeats We can guide habits, such as exercise, using repeating actions. To create repeating actions: Select the task If not open already, open the inspector by either, Selecting the Inspect icon in the tool bar Or typing the key command Option-Command-i The repeat section is the fourth down.

For example, a task with a 1 week deferral will become available exactly one week after it is checked off. So for example, checking a task due today with a Due Again frequency of 3 days, would set it due again 3 days from today.

Repeat Every has the next occurrence at a very specific intervals. Checking off the task will create an identical task dated next Monday, regardless of when you check it off during the week. If the Repeat Every option is selected and there is either no date selected or there is a date in the due field, then the repeat every will instead create specific intervals relatives to the due date. I tend to prefer the Defer Another option. When I check off the task, it goes away until next time.

Until then, I do not wish to see it. Contexts Contexts can be invaluable to further streamlining work. Contexts are traditionally described as people, places, or tools required of an action. Examples of contexts that I use are: Communications.
