Help beating a dead horse.
I am currently trying to implement a gtd paper system for myself. I am on the sales floor for 90 percent of my time.
Getting to the question
If I have a 3 ring binder that is at my desk divided into the subjects( calendar, agendas, etc) can I be successful with just a notepad on the floor if I review daily and update the three ring binder. If I am reviewing daily am I going about the system incorrectly?
Lots of questions looking for help
One way to avoid rewriting
There are ways to avoid rewriting while using paper, but none of them is perfect. Having to rewrite is one of the issues with using paper.
However, what about the idea of not using a notepad and instead keeping a pad of Post-its in your pocket?
Write a task or idea, then pull the sheet off and stick it to the back of the pad. When you get to your planner, put them in your Inbox area and then process/sort as needed.
It's not perfect, I admit. I got the idea from a mock trial I witnessed where the law student speaker had arranged her thoughts on Post-Its inside an (otherwise empty) manila folder.
