getting set up, anyone care to share their wisdom?
I've had the book for years and have been on this forum in the past but never felt like I had the system figured out so that it worked and I achieved that water mind goal. Well I'm back. Here is my deal and I'd love to hear what the more experienced (or perhaps someone with similar temperament and lifestyle to me) have to say.
1. I like paper.
2. If something is already working as a closed loop, don't fix it. (the motor hums just fine on my transcription business and Ihave a capture and routine for paying bills that works great (Basket for Bills as they arrive, pay online coincident with Husband's first payday of month..some on autopay. All that are ever needed for them is a jot on the calendar for things I need to remember.
Rolodex for addresses
My system needs:
A project list with all my "stuff" including all my art ideas ideas, goals projects.
Contexts, which so far I believe would be @phone, @ <a time zone> @out & about (errands/shopping), @desk.
A someday list for future things to consider.
Calendar can be used for ticklers?
Note, The kind of calendar I like is the is the simple full month kind. I've tried the planner kind and the appointment kind, but I just do best with the full month, including weekends, with squares to write in.
I actually have a a Planner Pad for my calendar, but I only use the month view of the calendar and sometimes jot something in the notes. The calendar you get at Christmas from your insurance guy would work fine for me as long as there were squares to write in.
Always have project list/ next actions of the day, calendar and pen with me.
This is my start, I'm hopeful that this time I can keep my reviews going and capture all my thoughts and just get that peace and productivity. I'm grateful in advance for your comments.
