Hey there! In today's fast-paced world, staying productive is super important for achieving our goals and leading a fulfilling life. That's why many people turn to productivity tools to help them stay organized and focused throughout the day. In this blog post, I'm gonna share my experience using three awesome productivity tools –, Fantastical, and OmniFocus – to boost my daily productivity. is a note-taking app that uses a markdown-based editor to help users organize their thoughts and ideas. I use as my primary note-taking and knowledge management tool. It allows me to create a digital Zettelkasten, a method of organizing knowledge into atomic notes that can be easily linked and retrieved.

One of the key benefits of is its ability to create bidirectional links between notes. This means that I can link notes together in a two-way direction, allowing me to explore relationships and connections between ideas.'s graph view provides a visual representation of these connections, making it easy to see how everything fits together.

I use to capture ideas, create to-do lists, and organize my research. With its powerful search and tagging features, I can quickly find the information I need to stay productive throughout the day.


Fantastical is a calendar app that integrates with multiple calendar services, including Apple Calendar, Google Calendar, and Microsoft Exchange. I use Fantastical to manage my schedule, track deadlines, and schedule meetings.

One of the key features of Fantastical is its natural language input. This means that I can type in a sentence like "Meet with John at 2 pm on Tuesday" and Fantastical will automatically schedule the meeting in the appropriate time slot.

Another feature that I find helpful is Fantastical's integration with Zoom. This allows me to easily create Zoom meetings directly from the app, saving me time and hassle.

Overall, Fantastical helps me stay on top of my schedule and ensure that I don't miss important deadlines or meetings.


OmniFocus is a task management app that allows users to create and manage to-do lists. I use OmniFocus to track my daily tasks and ensure that I'm making progress towards my goals.

One of the key features of OmniFocus is its ability to create nested projects and tasks. This means that I can break down large projects into smaller, more manageable tasks, making it easier to stay on track and make progress towards my goals.

Another feature that I find helpful is OmniFocus's ability to set due dates and reminders for tasks. This ensures that I don't forget about important tasks and helps me stay focused on what's important.

OmniFocus also integrates with other productivity tools, such as Fantastical and Siri. This allows me to create tasks and reminders quickly and easily, without having to switch between apps.

Overall, OmniFocus helps me stay organized and focused on my daily tasks, ensuring that I'm making progress towards my goals.
