GTD + Omnifocus + Horizons of Focus
I've been using GTD concepts for 4-5 years and currently use Omnifocus as my list manager. Does anyone here successfully use GTD with Omnifocus and the 'Horizons of Focus' concept to manage their life from their life purpose to their next actions?
adding OmniOutliner to the mix
I use OmniFocus for projects and next actions but track the higher levels through OmniOutliner. While it probably sounds a bit naff, i really like using narrow, colour-coded checklists that i can place alongside my main Omnifocus window: e.g. 20,000 ft. next to the main window through to 50,000 ft. at the other side of the screen. The downside of this approach is that i need to manually drag things around to get it set up; the upside is that it allows me to think about the various breaks and continuities that run through the levels in ways that i wasn't able to do when i was using a hierarchical structure within OmniFocus.
I'm also interested to see how others do this within (or in conjunction with) OmniFocus.
OmniOutliner for Higher Levels
For those who might be interested, i adapted my Higher level lists from my Weekly Review checklist. Even if you don't go down the path of using OmniOutliner for all of the higher levels it's great for keeping the Weekly Review on track.
