DURING THE COURSE of a phone call with Tom @tpemurphy Murphy, I learned some of his clever ideas on workflow. Many of the best ideas start with getting your plumbing in place with your note taking.

Tom uses several clever techniques with OneNote,  including the admonition to "start before you open OneNote". After reading through his blog post about OneNote  for the third time, I have started pruning some of my in-hand processes so I can get a sense of closure by moving content from one section to another. My goal has become to refine ideas into long form content through a process of moving ideas through three stages. Two of those stages would be separate sections in my "unfiled" notebook. The third part of the process enters into a separate notebook where I pull the well-formed ideas into Scrivener for publication.
To be successful, this process needs to hold pride of place in my daily workflow. As the screenshot on this blog post shows, I put OneNote in a prominent position on my Lumia screens. I look at my handset an average of 346 times a day.  I feel a sense of accomplishment when opening OneNote, reviewing media text content sent to [email protected] from a wide assortment of touch points throughout my day.
Now if only I can complete my to-do items faster. OneNote helps me complete tasks more efficiently. It is up to me to reach better completion timelines through more ruthless task management.
