For anyone who comes to this, there is a SDK version for the project, and another one for the xib file. Choose "Builds for OS X 10.7 and later".

Yes, I found that to be true of productivity tools. There is no one-size-fits-all solution!

Regarding the shifting of priorities, the prescribed way to use the four-quadrants method (if you read "The 7 habits...") is to plan for your week instead of daily, and select the tasks that will have the most impact on your business/career/life. The quadrants help you separate important stuff from noise, and within a quadrant you can just drag and drop to prioritize, and use the stars for tasks you commit to.

Great questions, Bobson. Even if you don't have anyone to delegate, you still have low energy times of the day, where you would not be effective at hard stuff, but you can certainly finish menial tasks. I get through a lot of these while on my commute train, waiting for the elevator, or just at the end of the day when I'm exhausted.

comment KVO produces error/not receiving notification
This was the right answer for my case. I have a sea of bindings, some of them connected via paths, not just keys. Commenting out the will|didChange... calls inside the setter did the trick!

comment What is the working area when a navigation bar is displayed in an iPhone application?
The standard nav bar is 44pixels tall, so the available space would be 416, not 426.

comment The flow phenomena
I know this is not really answering your question, but if the task is menial and doesn't represent a business opportunity, it's screaming to be automated. Even simple things that require human supervision, like replying to customers, can be largely accelerated by the use of templates, reminders and such.
