Is the GTD/Outlook plug-in suitable for me?
I'm a sole practicioner, with a fairly light email volume, which I can deal with fairly quickly as it comes in. However, my schedule and task list are both very complex.
For instance, on my calendar, I like to track:
- meetings with clients which result in revenue to me and additional tasks (which I would like to color code by client)
- meetings with prospects which result in future tasks but no revenue
- program deliveries which result in revenue to me but no future tasks (which I would like to color code by client)
- tentative program deliveries, for which I need to block time, but which may get cancelled (which I would like to color code by client)
- personal appointments which I must attend (Dr, banker, etc)
- fun and games (concerts, festivals, restaurant reservations, get-togethers) which I may or may not actually attend
- schedules of other people with whom I work
- informational appointments which require nothing from me (cleaning service, birthdays, anniversaries, and the like)
My tasks are similarly complex.
Will Mr. Allen's system help me?
What are you using now to track this?
Are you tracking this on a particular computer program or paper? Did this system evolve or did you take from one of the time management guru systems & modify it for your needs?
Just curious - I like to hear how people do there stuff. I often wonder what I'd be doing today if I was never introduced to Covey, Franklin, Franklin-Covey, Lotus, Above & Beyond, Anytime, ad nauseum. :roll:
