GTD Makes Electronic/Written To Do's Obsolete?
For the past several months after reading GTD, I have slowly been changing how I handle my workflow. As a 16 year user of Franklin Covey and their basic system (indexing notes and To Do's via calanders and daily pages), it is difficult because I cannot seem to get a grip on To Do Lists. In fact, I dare say it is a weak point of most planning systems in general.
One of David Allen's (DA) best points is that To Do lists create more stress and leave many open loops. I am right there with a big AMEN! So while it's nice to know I'm not alone and nuts, the next question is, what to do with To Do's?
We need lists, and while (I think) I get DA's points about them, I still need help.
I write this because I need a tool that works. I am willing to give up my Franklin (gasp) if needed. I left BB for iPhone recently, and the amoung of To Do apps are staggering, and almost seem at cross purposes with GTD, esp. if you use the Tickler File system. But the tool must match my system, which is in flux at the moment.
I love the days (pre internet) when Franklin actually met the needs of professional's, but now, it seems those days are over. Any comments are helpful. I am re-reading GTD again to see if I missed anything, but feel free to let me know what I have missed. Thanks!
