I use OF with the Full Focus Planner and my life has a lot of small-medium projects to advance at once right now. For the past few years I’ve been careful not to put aspirational tasks in OF because its purpose is to keep details organized and aid my memory, not to motivate me.* Having the planner has made it easier to stick to that because my goals and tasks that are challenges to myself go in there.
OF has lists of active projects, many with next actions, and a lot of repeating contextual work. I will double-check OF to see if my plan for my day makes sense, but otherwise I set my big three daily tasks based on my weekly goals and only consult OF for contextual lists of tasks after those are complete. And then in my OF review, I use the weekly/quarterly/annual plans to help decide whether to put a project on hold.
It’s complicated, but it’s at the right level of complexity for what I am responsible for and I feel like the work I do to maintain the system nets me a few to several hours a week.
*I mean, I mostly don’t use OF to motivate me, but sometimes I just have to brainstorm a giant, overly deep task outline in there, and get all the parallel and sequential nodes just right, to break the ice on a big job. Guilty pleasure!
