Rob, writing about switching to OmniFocus from Things, makes great point against tinkering in general:

The point of all this is simple: if the tool you are currently using works well for you, consider yourself all set. Shiny new tools will always come along with new features. You can go learn new tools, or keep using your tried and true tools that have never let you down.

I couldn’t agree with Rob more. It’s the age-old saying, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. For Rob, Things is an app which still works great and he has no need for switching. So he’s not.

I’m a big fan of this type of attitude. It’s so easy to spend your time tinkering with something new rather than learning what you currently have. My reason for switching from Things was not because I wanted to try something different just for the sake of trying it. I switched because wi-fi syncing was no longer practical.
