Contexts for home workers
It's that time of year where I like to review how I'm getting on with my implementation, and see what improvements I can make. I've identified that I have some concern with the way I handle contexts. Professionally I do a huge amount of my work on the computer, online. I also work from home most of the time. This means that @computer tasks for work and not work tend to bleed into each other. Any other home workers with a similar experience?
I'm currently rethinking along these lines:
This would be usual home and family stuff such as "Take down xmas decorations"
This would be any kind of outdoors thing such as "Make new compost heap"
This would be any kind of computer-based home task such as "Research birthday present for Grandpa"
This would account for most of my professional stuff such as "prepare training course for X"
This would be non-computer work stuff that might require papers or just me to be thinking in a work context, such as "brainstorm project plan for Z"
This tends to be my general out and about stuff, I also have @shopping
Phone calls to make - fairly slim usage
Stuff to talk about with people when I get the chance.
I find I sometimes have stuff to do that really just requires pen and paper and a brain - and as I travel quite a bit, it seems like a reasonable context.
The main tweak is the idea of separating the computer context. Does this make sense to others? Any comments or experiences to share?
