Fighting Procrastination with Orgmode

Note: Text in English because its written for an international audience.

We all know those task, that we always push ahead into the future. Those tasks that we know we should do sooner or later, but we decide for later. We all have them, wether it is a task like „file taxes“ or „unclutter wardrobe“ or whatever. Yesterday I made a small step forward in handling those tasks.


Next steps with Org-roam

Last weekend I installed Org-roam on my productive Desktop system. I applied the knowledge that I gained on playing around with it on the virtual machine and now I’m having an installation running to take my notes.


Exploring org-roam

After I released my Orgmode course on Udemy I got some requests to do a course on org-roam. I never heard before about org-roam and the „roam“ in the name made me think that this is just a tool to share data between several systems, like in raoming profiles or roaming with your cell phone. Nevertheless I started to look around what this tool is.

So I looked for improvements.


Orgmode-Vortrag auf dem LIT 2017

Es ist schon eine Weile her dass ich auf dem Linux-Info-Tag 2017 der Linux User Group Augsburg e.V. einen Vortrag über das Thema „Orgmode“ gehalten habe. Neulich habe ich dann das Video dazu auf YouTube gefunden:

Another approach for goal tracking

A few days ago I uploaded a video on goal setting and tracking. I got some very interesting feedback and Hugo gave me something to think. My approach was to set ID-Links between the goals file ( and my action-files (*.org). But Hugo pointed out that it would be better to use tags for this. So I used my demo installation to try this out.

Yesterday evening I uploaded the 5th snippet of my tutorial episode 7. So here is the blog post for that. Sorry that it took so long, I have to reconsider the format of the videos in 2018 and proabably increase the pace again.
