I’m late at listening, hard for me tocarve out a chunk of time I can listen to stuff.
On time estimates this is a system that has proved very accurate for me over years of all sorts of tasks.
L = least possible time the project could take (most optimistic)
M = most likely time for the project to take (best guess)
W = worst case for time project could take (most pessimistic)
Obviously L < M < W
Estimated time = (L+(3*M)+W)/5
On the whole Omnifocus stuff: I’m now a Farmer and yet i can’t even imagine not using a really powerful task manager like Omnifocus.
On the deferred date system idea. I have a bunch of projects that can only be done in a specific season that also repeat yearly (Right now I’m in the planning sheep breeding project I do every fall) So I have a lot of deferred dates. And almost all of mine are for projects not tasks. If I want to defer non-repeating projects I usually go ahead and pull them out of OF into my someday/maybe system and will re-activate them at some point in the future when I review them
