"Active Reference" and a few clarifying questions
I've been trying out GTD for the last few weeks, and I have run into a few snags. Whenever I do, I always start to muddy the water with extra lists, contexts, etc., making it too specific and inconvenient.
My contexts are always @place1, @place2, etc., and my action types are the following ( i use tokens because I use evernote):
1. I also had !Waiting, but I think waiting might be more of a context (@waiting)
2. I have a hard time determining !delegated or !waiting (usually i use this to mean I can't do a task yet, and am waiting to do it, but as such it could be seen as "!delayed" rather than !waiting.
3. I am having issues with filing. I have a lot of general reference material that i have in A-Z format in one location. I also have stuff that I want to read, like an article that I clip for later. I can't decide where to put it. If i file it, I have to make a !Next action to read it. I also have ongoing documents that are not actions, but I don't want to file them away as I need to work on them. I created a folder called "Active Reference" for these types of thing, and also checklists, driving directions, etc. Is Active Reference used by anyone else? How do other people relate referene to someday/maybe and the rest of GTD?
