Calendar, preparations, some stuffs i dont understand
I'm new in GTD and this forum, so, hello..?
I have some questions about GTD, perhaps I have more but I hope I can ask them later
Here they are:
1.How often should I review my calendar?
2.If, for example, I have an appointment for Saturday(xx date, xx month) tomorrow, today is Friday, and I haven't prepared that document I need for it! What should I do to avoid this kind of havoc?
3.The GTD suggest that if we have a project, we do project planning, when the next action is determined, it goes to the Next action list according to its context.
My question, does the next action related to a project needs to have a mark on it to remind me that its connected to my project?
For example, I may have a project:"Help dad stop smoking", then I'll have the next action:"Browse the web how to stop smoking", "Buy hypnosis book", etc. What if then I buy the hypnosis book, then I learn interesting stuffs in there, that I forgot I have to help dad to stop smoking?
4.I am a student, so, I attend school everyday, where does this "going to school" go into my system? I have a calendar that could repeat items(like cut my nails every two weeks), but I don't really need to be reminded about going to school everyday!
5.And about the school subjects, like "learn math", perhaps the next action is "buy math book", then "study trigonometry chapter", then "make a summary about trigonometry", you might realize that the "study trigonometry chapter" and "make a summary about trigonometry" needs the math book first. Do I have to write them all or should I just write "buy math book", then I figure out the next actions after that? I worry if I do that, I'll keep wondering about the later actions...
6. Can you explain the runway, 10.000 ft., 20.000 ft., 30.000 ft., 40.000 ft., 50.000 ft. ? I don't really get it....
I'm sorry I have too much questions... You should now realize that I don't have that mind like water state right now
