A shorter shortcut to capture todo tasks

Org mode is wonderful for managing todo lists. Usually to add a task, I would run org-capture using the default C-c c and then select my todo template by hitting t. I do this so often that I wanted a shorter shortcut, so I defined a function to call org-capture with the specific template I wanted and bound this to a simple shortcut (I used C-9 after removing numeric prefixes):

;; function to capture a todo
(defun bjm/org-capture-todo ()
  "Capture a TODO item"
  (org-capture nil "t"))

;; bind
(define-key global-map (kbd "C-9") 'bjm/org-capture-todo)

Now C-9 takes me straight to my todo capture template.
