My Workflow

I try to be methodical in working and doing things. And I use the best tools and workflows that work for me to achieve my goals.

Life

  • Rules - Grounds me into focusing on what I find important in life and cutting out the waste.
  • Processes - Streamlines doing some tasks.

Code

  • VS Code - Main editor. Currently write mostly Go and Python.
  • Sublime Text - GitHub readmes, editing the wiki and quick edits (Markdown mostly).
  • Neovim - Small and quick edits. Edit my Karabiner XML config file there.

Task tracking

  • 2Do - Personal day-to-day tasks. Every task is actionable. Tasks that don't fit into a GitHub issue are put there. Usually this includes personal tasks.
  • Ship - GitHub issues. All issues I want to work on soon are put into Up Next queue and I work through each one, one by one.
  • Trello - Public and personal boards. It's really nice because I can share pragmatically things I want to do publically and have the workflow actually be seamless so it doesn't distract or detach from the experience in any way.

Time management

  • Fantastical - I plan my work for the entire day ahead of me and my day is primarily guided by the events I create. I always have Fantastical show Week view for 5 days from current day. This gives me a perspective on what deadlines I have soon to complete and I can adjust my events as necessary and plan accordingly.
  • Timing - Track all time I spend there. I try to automate as much of the tracking as possible so Timing learns from what I do and it's easy to fill out the sections after.

Knowledge Indexing

  • This wiki - A bunch of markdown files rendered by Gitbook and edited with Ulysses and Sublime Text.
  • Articles on Medium - Share longer articles that serve to answer some one message or share some one insight there. This wiki is a more living and ever changing document.
  • SnippetsLab - Snippets of code and knowledge (facts/reference).

Bookmarks

  • Curated lists - I open any of the lists readmes in seconds and any edit I make is automatically commited with Hazel. The lists are open to contribution too this way they get better and scale with time.
  • Alfred My Mind - All my public facing bookmarks. Searching this wiki here. Searching my articles, my GitHub repos and more.
  • Safari and Chrome bookmarks - Only contain personal bookmarks. The rest is publically available and queriable by anyone.

Photographs

  • Pixave - My entire media library of images and GIFs neatly sorted into collections. I post some images from there to my Instagram page.
  • Apple Photos - All my personal photographs and images I made sorted into albums.
  • Day One - Alongside small private notes and journal entries I add most photographs I take to Day One. Usually in form of Travel checkins. It's really awesome because everything there is encrypted and I can rely on it always being there.

Journalling

  • Day One - All my private thoughts and journal entries.
  • Looking back - My public log of things I've done and worked on throughout the months with highglights and comments on each month/year.

Writing

  • Ulysses - All my writing. Medium posts, stories, wiki, small pieces and ideas.

Contacts

  • Apple Contacts - All people I meet and I am interested in are added as contacts in my contacts book. All contacts are prefixed with a category (i.e. f. for friend or i. for internet) and most contacts have tags attached so it's easier to remember the person. I use this workflow to search all contacts, names, tags and notes I wrote for the contact.
