Wanted: can a kind person please share simple gtd s using toodledo
Greetings and happy new year to my old forum acquaintances and new forum users. I have been trying to use toodledo but I am having a heck of a time making my basic gtd elements (areas of focus, projects, context, and sdmbs) fit into toodledoo's system. I have tried to search gtd forums but I am getting no results (I may be a poor searcher) Toodledoo's forum posts that I have looked at so far are so complicated I am lost.
So, if you are doing this or can find any posts that show this, I would be most appreciative. I having been using paper since the death of my Palm and it is killing me.
i agree w toodledo field turning off, but i cant bring myself to do it
I'm really all over and have never been simple ;-) but here is what I have done with toodledo:
I think started using toodledo in 2011, & I let it get stale. I can see how so many fields are a turn off.
It think it forced my staleness.... but in all honesty lately i think it forces me to plan such as due date since i have the attention span of a gnat.
Now I'm letting those fields help me plan, and not scare me off. Priority is junk in my opinon, I also use Pocket Informant for my iphone 3gs that uses my gmail calendar and toodle and soon evernote... that PI app is way too busy but has handy sort functions. They might be useful if I become a gtd blackbelt.
I use tasks= runway;sometimes inbox as hairbrained/triggering thoughts for processing later.
folders as projects/next action/someday/maybe/ areas of focus etc;
contexts stay contexts;
goals: short term,longterm and lifetime= 30000, 40000, 50000 ft horizons
other items include
Evernote as capturing inbox and project support
Pinterest is a great imagery tool for what i want to have true like a vision board or something
Mindmap at work and freemind at home for connecting thoughts helping me find steps
I love printing and crossing off things from toodledo. it feels better than clicking a checkbox. i read uncrossed of things and ask why have i not done them
I also print it off for reference in case of home computer meltdowns /network blocking sites at work
