-Created all my term papers as Projects and made mind-maps to gather all of the particulars. Then look for the next action so that for every paper I had, all my next actions would be dictated.
-Created contexts specifically dedicated to the places I occupied most, such as @Library, @Lecture, @Study time, etc. I imagine this would have been a very interesting group of contexts to create.
-Used the Project Support, Waiting For, and Read and Review folders like crazy! As well as having an inbox to process all of my homework and class notes.
One of the best parts of GTD is creatively catering it to where your life is right now. It might be fun to take a look through the book and see how you can set up the different pieces to fit your life juuust right (like Goldilocks).
Best to you in your studies!
