A few weeks ago I watched the Lynda.com1 GTD video David Allen put together. It’s a very solid introduction to GTD and why you might want to put the system to use, but it’s not as comprehensive as the book. Still, it was a good refresher course for me.
While I was watching it, I was trying to capture thoughts that were bouncing around my head. When my hands are tied up (as when I’m driving, or in this case, at the gym) I usually use Siri to capture my thoughts in Omnifocus. I asked Siri to “Remember to schedule meeting with Tobe”. She recognized what I was saying, but didn’t quite parse it correctly:
This is the kind of glitch that makes Siri so frustrating to use. It was so close to correct, but didn’t even capture a reminder, since it was searching the calendar.
Yes, I know I’ve been watching a lot of Lynda videos - this has become what I do when I hit the gym. I’ll use the elliptical (decent head stability) while learning something with Lynda on the iPhone. ↩
