Organisation of Vague/Random Thoughts That Do Not Fit Into GTD Framework?
As for many people, I have found GTD tremendously useful in many areas of my life, however I have one sticking point I hope other users of the forum may be able to help me through.
I find the framework of GTD very much suited towards those that may be working a traditional desk job. Given my work and personal life, my thinking and projects don't often take the same linear structure one might find in an office environment and I found the examples in the book of little help when it came to some materials I had to organise at the beginning stage ('The five stages of mastering workflow' - collect, process, organise, review, do) I am consistently getting stuck with some materials I have during the process step.
I have masses of collected papers where I have jotted down notes that encompass vague thinking or ideas that don't appear to fit anywhere within a system. For example, sometimes I will write down questions to myself in order to think more deeply about a personal situation - would this be considered a journal entry of sorts? If so, how could the thoughts be organised or placed into a system? Other writing covers general thoughts I may have on questions of art theory or history scribbled down on a piece of paper with other thoughts on related films or art and design movements, clusters of words that evoke a particular concept etc. Considering what appears to be the slippery nature of this information, I wonder if fellow GTDers had any tips on how to organise this material.
