In keeping with GTD principles, every time a task comes to mind, I have to get it into OmniFocus right away. The longer it stays in my brain, the more likely I am to forget it.
OmniFocus has a quick entry mechanism that allows me to type
^ + Space and enter tasks at lightening speed. There’s one catch, however: OmniFocus has to be open for it to work. Believe it or not, I don’t always have OmniFocus open. Opening it, then entering my tasks introduced a slightly irksome level of friction.
I realized that this was true of OmniFocus’ AppleScript methods, as well: OmniFocus would need to be open in order for them to work. Given that I have some workflows that make use of these methods, this, too, introduced friction.
