Another nice little GTD toy that I just saw this evening is called GTD widget for iCal. It’s a widget. Yeah, right, I already told you that :-). It’s a widget that talks with your iCal, and helps you easily input informations – actually ToDo’s – into your iCal without having it open. Right, how come anybody haven’t thought yet to widgetize the GTD methodology so far, they did it well with the wiki, but not with GTD… –
Each calendar is called an “Inbox” by the developers, and in the widget you can select from a nice combo-box the “Inbox” of your choice. Input your ToDo and you’re set, it will be saved into your calendar in iCal. There is also a zone called “Next Actions” but it’s not what you imagined, is just a list for your “today” ToDo’s in each of your “Inbox”-es… I know, it’s a real GTD twisting here, but let’s hope the developer knows that too ;-)…
Anyway, I think that for a very early application it has some future, especially if the developer will not remain iCal-centric and try to make this into a “real” GTD widget. It’s actually really interesting if they will manage to think it right and do it better than now, because that will open a path where only Quicksilver has been before… And that’s good 🙂[tags]GTD software, Mac OS widgets, iCal[/tags]
Running For My Life - from zero to ultramarathoner
The spooky thing about depression is that it sneaks in. There aren’t really trumpets and loud voices announcing: “Hail, hail, this is depression entering the room, all rise!” Nope. It’s slow, silent, creepy. It doesn’t even look like depression. It starts with small isolation thoughts like: “Maybe I shouldn’t get out today, I just don’t feel like going out”. And then it does the same next day. And then the day after that and so on. And then it starts to whisper louder and louder in your ears: “Why would you go outside, you loser? Didn’t have enough yet? Want more people to make fun of how much of a big, fat loser you are?”
And then you start to breath in guilt and shame, instead of air. Every breathe you take is putting more dark thoughts into your body.
Until you get stuck. You can’t move anymore. At all.
