Shortcuts because Things recurring tasks sucks

2024-04-24 00:00

One of my tricks for using task managers in general, but in particular Things is to generate them with automations and templates instead of recurring tasks.

I started doing it with Things, mainly because their recurring tasks is beyond stupid.

But in general I think it is a better way of doing it for most things, because it isn’t relying on you completing something before the next one is added.

My system is that sometime in the last half of a week I generate new projects for things that will expire in the next week. Usually Weekly, Daily and Biweekly things; sometimes it includes Monthly and Yearly stuff; and there are also some things that are more on a less fixed schedule.
