Setting up a simple GTD system in plaintext files has clarified the places I felt friction in OF. I wanted a system I could translate into a sensible default (HT @patrickrhone) on index cards.
Sometimes you just need to look at it from a new perspective.

I’ve been fighting with OF for a while. I just had to take a step back from it to figure out what would work for me in any situation or with any set of tools rather than force it.
Your “sensible default” concept clicked for me.
