LearnMarketing web apps is time consuming

So we’ve finished Amigo … and now the fricken hard work has begun!

I’ve decided to devote 25% of my time (one day a week) fully concentrating on Amigo. That may not sound like much to you, but when you’ve got this many projects …

… you have to allocate your time carefully.

Today’s To-Do List

Just to give you a peek into my to-do list for a day focused on Amigo, here’s a visual (I use OmniOutliner for my to-do list. I’ll go more into this later on a “Getting Things Done” style post):

Hopefully I’ll be able to crank through these and knock some other things out as well. Time to get on it!

  1. Just found this: http://homepage.mac.com/james_sorenson/omnishadow.html

    It’s a plugin for OmniOutliner that converts a .oo3 file to a ShadowPlan file. ShadowPlan is a pretty nice todo list software for PALM. This will suffice in lieu of the OmniGroup porting to Palm!

  2. To answer my own question… after some more searching I found ‘My Life Organized’ which is working well for me so far.

  3. Anyone know of a windows version of OmniOutliner or something similar? I love the simplicity of it, but haven’t found anything to match it in the windows world yet.

  4. Interesting idea, would you have been able to do a 4 day week when it was just you / when you were starting out?

    How do you fill a 3 day weekend (it can’t just be trips round the shops and coffee)?

    Hey Ryan, congrats on getting the new blog up and running, hope all goes well.

    Thanks James ๐Ÿ™‚

    Glad to see you will be posting about GTD.

    This is something I’m pretty passionate (obsessive?) about – so I’m looking forward to sharing my tips.

    Ryan,

    Glad to see you will be posting about GTD. I recently took up OmniOutliner as a to-do list and am having difficulty getting used to it. A change in work flow always takes work!

    PS. We have a CMS we’ll be releasing soon. Let me know if you want to check it out and I’ll send you the demo link (re: Look at CMS for Amigo).

    1 day per week = 25% of your time, how lucky are you only working a 4 day week

    You’re right ๐Ÿ™‚ We work a 4 day week at Carson Systems.

    Hi Ryan,

    I just did a whole slew of work about website CMS’s for the University at which I work, I’d be happy to share my experiences.

  10. 1 day per week = 25% of your time, how lucky are you only working a 4 day week ๐Ÿ˜‰

    You do sound pretty busy, but then if it was easy, everyone would be doing it and remember…

    Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is
    the key to success. If you love what you are
    doing, you will be successful.

  11. Fixed! Nice job.

    Looking forward to reading your posts.

  12. Nice looking blog. I find the grey-on-white much easier to read than the white-on-grey of Bare Naked App.

    The exclamation mark seems OK to me. (I added the FeedBurner link to my aggregator, SharpReader).

  13. If you like OmniOutliner, you should give OmniGraffle a try. Combining the two, and a litte bit of AppleScript magic can make for one hell of a toolset.

    Now maybe Apple will build a new PDA and OmniGroup will port their suite to it?

    Also, not sure that Tom at Harvest Digital would like his email address posted in your screenshot.

    Thanks Andy – sorted.

    Oh, Iรขโ‚ฌโ„ขm not absolutely sure about this, but when I tried to sub to you blog feed in FeedBurner, the ! exclamation mark in your blog title made FeedBurner chuck a mental. I removed it, then I could subscribe.

    Think this is fixed now. Can you let me know?

  15. ps. Oh, I’m not absolutely sure about this, but when I tried to sub to you blog feed in FeedBurner, the ! exclamation mark in your blog title made FeedBurner chuck a mental. I removed it, then I could subscribe. YMMV.

  16. Great to see you have your own blog – look forward to reading it. Not sure about the pic of you tho – nice hat… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    All the best, anyway!
