Paper, rewriting NA's, and organizing S/M
I think this is my first post here. I read the book over a year ago and put some of its ideas into practice but never achieved a smooth or complete system.
I'm on paper with my NA lists. I don't need to take them anywhere, so my "Contexts" are: Client Work, Non-client Business, Waiting, Personal, and S/M. Errands go on a PocketMod in my...pocket.
Here's my snag #1: I resist rewriting left-over NA's to a new sheet of 5.5x8.5 paper when the page is filled up and most of them are done. I suspect I should put some of them on a S/M list since I'm not doing them (must not be that important). I started to look at software methods and stopped myself since I think they'd be a hassle, a time-suck, and I like being able to just jot something down quick. I kind of like paper for this part of my "system".
Snag #2: I never have done a weekly review. How's that for an easy target for comments? I think it's mainly because I don't look forward to rewriting a bunch of stuff, and also because I don't have a good way of organizing the myriad items on my S/M list.
Any ideas or experiences or advice?
Thanks for the great tips
I have a rough division for time horizon in my S/M lists (thank you, Katherine) which I should revisit and refine. That would help me to move low priority items lingering on my NA lists too long.
I want my long S/M lists to be organized and editable, so today I fired up OmniOutliner for only the second time, the last one being last fall. It looks fun and simple and ought to work for this.
I have been using a highlighter to "cross off" done NA's (thank you, pchavez) and I like the way it looks.
I just finished reading the book "One Small Step Can Change Your Life", so the 30-minute weekly review sounds really good to me as a way to get myself started on doing them regularly (thank you, Mark).
Once again, thanks for the great ideas.
