Taskpaper and OmniFocus Link

I like when Patrick writes on RocketInk. This post was a nice bit of cleverness about using plain text based Taskpaper and UI-centric OmniFocus for different reasons.

I guess a good part of my problem when opening OmniFocus is, that there’s a plethora of tasks which are paused and undone. This subconsciously affects my self-esteem, leaving me with a feeling that I haven’t accomplished that much. Since I use the app as a library and the amount of ‘unfinished work’ stands in no relation to the tasks I checked off, my mini TaskPaper projects are more rewarding to me. It might just be a simple psychological trick, but it works for me (a bit better than just relying solely on OmniFocus).
