Like @shouit’s setup, I also have way too many repeating tasks and need my iOS devices to keep track. But I do choose the 3 main tasks for the day and write them down. I also print out one project from OmniFocus to paper and work off that list if I am focusing on a Big Rock for the day.
If I am in the @computer context, I’ll want to stay there. It’s hard to work on a @writing context with paper and switch back to @computer context to look at OmniFocus.
Paper gives me that sense of freedom to stay away from my electronic devices. I’d say take the best of both worlds, digital and analog, and know when each tool will help depending on the situation. Why try to go all in on one setup (all digital or all analog) when we can utilize every tool available.
My handwriting is sh*te so I don’t know if I can rewrite eight pages every week. I’d get writing cramp. I’m jealous of those who have beautiful penmanship. sigh.
I didn’t want OmniFocus (or any task manager app) to be the main nexus for my productivity. Going hybrid has been a way for me to keep myself grounded. The digital task manager holds my future (what I want to do in the future) and the paper notebook holds the “Now” (what I want to do today).
@shouit: Don’t worry… I’ll carry the OmniFocus flag for a little bit until @joebuhlig comes around. I still have a few OmniFocus posts to write up somewhere in the drawers. I’m liking my hybrid setup for now. It might be shiny new toy syndrome so we’ll see how long it stands.
