Today I wanted to share how I use Chrome and Chrome extensions to aid my workflow.
What is my current workflow? I'm still working on it, but my target is for a neat I/O process - input - process - output. Currently, I'm following the GTD methodology of New, Next and Someday. I try to apply it to most things at varying levels of abstraction. i.e. My research, idea processing, planning and development all follow the same method.
Everybody has heard Facebook's mantra "Move fast and break things". Some people might even subscribe to it. The more time I spend moving fast, the more I realise I cannot move fast enough by myself. I've spent plenty of time sharpening my point to point computer control, and I've spent time organising my workflow so that I can move close to the "flow" of ideas to execution. The process is ongoing, and I'm pretty quick now (compared to how I used to be), and getting quicker. But it's still not enough. I need help.
I use a variety of task lists every day. Many people might want to use only one app for all their tasks - but I've found it to be unrealistic, and possibly impractical. I've become comfortable using various different platforms to manage my different activities: some work better than others. Here is my low-down.
I'm a mac power user - which basically means I use the keyboard a lot and have optimised my workflow using tools I researched to get things done as quickly as possible without losing my "flow". I'm still working on this process, but here's how I am currently doing.
