I’ve been intrigued by the Amazon Kindle 2 for quite some time, but I just couldn’t quite bring myself to shell out the $359 to buy one. Saturday evening, one of my friends posted on her FaceBook status that she was enjoying her new Kindle. This caused me to take another look at the device.
Since I’ve been using TiddlyWiki as my primary task manager, I move text around A LOT. Selecting, cutting, and pasting text is still much better than shuffling paper, however. Except as noted, the keyboard shortcuts below work in textarea fields of any web page and not just for TiddlyWiki. Note also that these may not [...]
I had to send a document today via inter-office mail. I needed the recipient to mark up the copy with any changes. I thought this might be a good time to write about both sending good inter-office notes as well as how I track “Waiting For” items in TiddlyWiki.
You’ll notice in the example below 4 [...]
One of the first things I did when I was becoming familiar with Tiddly Wiki was to play with the tables layout and design a 2006 calender. It looks like this (reduced by 75%):
If you want to add one of these to your own TiddlyWiki, here is the code you’ll need:
|>|>|>|>|>|>|>|>|>|>|>|>|>|>|>|>|>|>|>|>|>|>|bgcolor(#cccccc): !2 0 0 6 [...]
The central part of a FranklinCovey system is the Weekly Compass. This is a tool that you update during the weekly review and plan. In a paper based system it is a strip of paper that is used to mark the current day. As you plan your week, you note what you plan to do [...]
If I was following strict GTD then my Home Task List tiddler would just be a bulleted list of next actions. Since I am now doing an integrated FranklinCovey and GTD system, this list has a little more structure. It is divided into Must Do, Should Do, Could Do, Master Task List, and Completed. As [...]
Yesterday I shared that my primary tiddlers in my Home TiddlyWiki are: Home Tasks, HomeWaiting, HomeSomedayMaybe, HomeProjects, HomePreFlightChecklist, Errands, WeeklyCompass, and GoverningValues. Although I spend most of my home time working out of the Home Tasks tiddler I want to share my Tickler tiddler first since a lot of the stuff in my Home Tasks [...]
I mentioned in yesterday’s post that I’ve ditched my Palm, Palm Desktop, and Outlook for task management and switched to GTD TiddlyWiki. Since the organization I work for paid nearly $300 to send me to this seminar, I figured that I owed it to them to give these new methods my best effort. If they [...]
On November 1st, me and 5 of my co-workers attended a FranklinCovey seminar called Focus : Achieving Your Highest Priorities. I have read about the FranklinCovey methodologies multiple times and even have the CD series called Focus : Achieving Your Highest Priorities. Since I’m also rather proficient with David Allen’s Getting Things Done methodologies, I [...]
It’’s no secret that I don’t care much for paper. If I can do something electronically instead of with paper, I usually choose pixels over pulp. When I started developing our Intranet at my full-time job, we had a contest between the employees to determine the name for it. My suggestion was to call it [...]
