Nested Folders 16: The Maker and the Manager

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.

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.

Nested Folders 13: The Year End Review

Scotty and I discussed our approaches to year-end reviews, reflecting on what has been and planning for what is to come. Some questions we ask ourselves: What did I do this year that was awesome? Why did that work so well? What do I want to do next year? What could I have improved?

Keeping Track of My Someday & Maybe Tasks with Git

Someday and maybe tasks and projects are one of those things where I can never seem to find the perfect system. I’ve tried putting these things in OmniFocus and tagging them, using Trello (which I still use, but for different purposes) and I know there has been more than one paper planner over the years!

Nested Folders 6: Is It Worth Automating?

As many people know, automation is a topic near and dear to my heart - therefore I often think about automating something before I really know what that something is! Is this a good thing or a bad thing? Really it depends on the circumstance - so Scotty and I talked about it!

Nested Folders 5: How We Weekly Review

In episode 5 of Nested Folders Scotty and I dived into our weekly review routines. It was also good to review traps we've both previously fallen into with our reviews - I've been considering making a printed list of how I do my weekly review and if I do so I'm also going to make a list of "not to do" on it - as a reminder of those lessons that I've learned over the years!

Nested Folders 3: Building Bookends

Episode 3 of Nested Folders has landed, in it we talk about building bookends - those magical periods of time in the run up to something in which we get everything done that we need to! I also trick Scotty into doing maths, and most important of all: Scotty has a new mic.

Nested Folders Episode 2: No(n) Zero Day

In this latest episode of Nested Folders I introduced Scotty to the idea of the Non Zero Day. I stumbled across this a few years ago on Reddit and thought that it was a great idea, do something towards your goals every day. It might not seem like rocket surgery but saying it out loud and then reviewing your efforts can make a big difference - especially for those larger goals!

Introducing Nested Folders, a Productivity Podcast

Today I’m launching a new podcast called Nested Folders with a friend of mine Scotty Jackson. Scotty and I met when we started testing early versions of OmniFocus 3 together, I believe our first real encounter was me helping him replicate a bug report so he could nail down the steps to email in. (Coincidentally this is also where I met Ryan Dotson who I ended up writing Build Your OmniFocus Workflow with - who would have guessed that people eager to do an early beta test of OmniFocus would also be good people to make productivity related content with?!)
