You receive a form that nees to be returned in three weeks. Where to leave the form?
-Do you create a Next Action for it and keep it with you in a folder "forms and mail"?
-Do you store it in the ticklerfile in the next day and postpone it untill you feel like it?

I have right under my inbox a tray that is called actions support. It your situation I would make a next action in my tasklist and put a banner in my calendar the last day I can return the form within the three weeks as a reminder that this either had to be done or needs to be done on that day. THe form goes in the action support tray.

Great Idea. Because I live a lot out of my Laptopbag, I'll create a Actions Support folder and create a Next Action wit a due date.

I'd put it in my Tickler file for the earliest day I'm likely to complete it, making sure the deadline is clearly indicated.
* Complete simple forms immediately, under the two-minute rule.
* Make sure the form isn't a project in disguise. Income taxes require much more organization than conference registrations.
