You can drag and drop Things tasks into Fantastical

I’ve used both Things and Fantastical—arguably two of the best Mac and iOS apps out there—for many years now, but I was today years old when I found out you can simply drag an item from a Things window onto your calendar to create a time block to work on that item. Game changer for planning out my day and week.

Hi there. My name is Tom Pacyk and this is my small home on the web. I love the intersection of design, technology, and communication, which is a combination that led me to a career in sales and marketing roles at places like Zoom and ServiceNow. They're a bit old now, but I also had the opportunity to publish a couple of books along the way.

Portland, Oregon is home for me, my wife Beth, and our three kids, but I'm actually a Midwestern transplant—I grew up in the Chicago suburbs and went to school at Purdue and Illinois. When I find some free time I'm probably going to concerts, rooting for the Portland Timbers, or working on my Sunshine Burn Photography project.
