Streamlining Projects and Next Actions
I had stuff in these lists that just didn't belong there. For example, I put my work-defined yearly MBOs into my project list. This is inappropriate for at least two reasons: I don't work on every MBO at once, and because they often consist of many subprojects. So, what do I do with them?
Working in Outlook Tasks, I just defined four new categories: .1purpose, .2vision, .3goals, .4AreasOfFocus. Then I renamed my .projects category to .5projects. Then I closed the first 4 -- so now, in Outlook Tasks, I see the first four categories as a hierarchy, and I can open them and look at them, if I want -- but I focus on the ones that are open -- .5projects and my @context categories. I suppose I could go even further: close the projects category and just leave my current context open.
This is getting exciting -- I can see clearly now
(by the way -- I put the yearly MBOs into the .3goals category)
