i just started using gtd and am working thru my inbox pile.
1. i don't know what to do with things that have to be done by a certain date--for example, box up and ship something that needs to be received by Dec 14th or pay property taxes by dec 15th---and have accompanying forms.
Calendar is for things that have to be done on a specific date so it does not apply. Do i just pick a date for the tickler system and put the property tax bill and mailing forms in the chosen date?
2. When a project involves different steps (i.e. photographing art piece, writing artist statement, completing form, burning cd) that must be done by a certain date---are the GTD steps as follows:
--put on project list
--include different steps under project heading
--where else do i put the steps? they don't have to be done in a specific order. ie can take photos or fill forms in either order.
I am also trying to look at apps for my mac and itouch that are simple and can be used offline.
lots to do!
