Using OmniFocus to maintain a list of daily goals at work

I really need to have a way to track a rotating list of things I need to try to get done every day. These are items that just have to get done on a daily basis that don’t need “project management”…they are just things that I need to make sure to get done. Start and Due Dates aren’t important. If something doesn’t get done one day it needs to flow into the next. In OmniFocus the only way I can think of to accomplish this is to use the flag and then use the “Flagged” perspective to be able to see these things.

I’ve been using Evernote for these but it doesn’t make sense in my mind to do it there because I use OmniFocus to keep track of tasks. Instead of using Evernote to have my main list of goals they are going to go into OmniFocus every morning. I’m going to try doing the following with those tasks to keep them separate from the others:

  • No start or due dates.
  • The context should still be Work.
  • Create a single action project called “Daily Work Goals”.
  • Use the “Flagged” perspective to follow all of this.

At the very least I think I’ve found a good reason to use the flag in OmniFocus. 🙂 Up until now I really haven’t had an idea of where that might be useful.
