Graphical task manager with support for dependencies
I'm currently working on a graphical task manager.
Instead of having a list of tasks, the tool allows you to create a flowchart of your tasks. Based on this flowchart, the tool automatically generates a list of possible next actions.
Do you think something like this could be useful?
How do you handle dependencies in your current GTD system?
Speeding up by not using such a tool, if not really necessary
David Allen recommends:
- Do not try to identify all the tasks to do, get just the next action needed to move on.
- Do this action, this will naturally move the project to the following steps
- Review list of your projects to be sure, your projects are having at least one next action (or you found them completed)
I was trying to use such a tools you are thinking about and till I get rid of them, I was just playing with something, I did not need really.
If you really like flowcharts - get a whiteboard or piece of paper - it is fast and effective method to clarify the situation (which will change very soon and make your old charts obsolete).
I am also programming a lot and honestly saying - programming something was far too often just the excuse to avoid doing some real and important work.
