This week on Nested Folders, Scotty and I discussed how we manage through feelings of overwhelm, how we think about overwhelm, and we reflected on our personal strategies to prevent overwhelm.
In this episode, David and I looked at our automations surrounding capture and review. Between Shortcuts and web-based automations, Drafts and URL schemes there’s plenty you can automate.

According to the internet there are two kinds of people. What kinds these people are varies dramatically depending on the meme in question, but on this week’s episode of Nested Folders, Scotty and I looked at the idea of the Maker and the Manager.
Toolbox Pro developer (and documentary film editor) Alex Hay joins us to explain how he stumbled from scratching his own itch to making a powerful Siri Shortcuts utility app, Toolbox Pro.

In the latest episode of Nested Folders, Scotty and I discussed our systems and mechanisms to keep consistent in our workflows and systems to avoid going off the rails, as well recognising as those tell tale signs that signal it happening.
In this week’s episode of Automators, David and I dove into health tracking. As it’s the start of the year I’ve been trying to figure out what my health goals are – but I couldn’t let them get away from me without a little automation!
After we recorded I stumbled across Charty, an app in beta which like many new apps popping up on my radar at the moment, is designed to integrate with Shortcuts. This one is, as you may guess from the name, designed to help you create charts with data. I’ve not yet figured out how to give it health data to make a chart (I suspect I need to split the times and data points first), but I’ll be experimenting with this over the next few weeks!
One of my favourite things to do with Shortcuts, is to make “dumb” devices smart. I’ve helped my parents track blood pressure and blood glucose, as well as added Health integration to my FitBit scales, all with just a few Shortcuts.
I hope you enjoy the 41st episode of Automators: Automated Health Tracking!
The key is to have a plan, so that you know what you’re changing when you change it. In this episode, Scotty and I talk about what it is to have a plan, make a plan, and deal with having a plan.
