I have now set up my GTD system and have had it going for about a month. I have done a few weekly reviews and all is going kind of okay. My main sticking issue now is how to keep a track of things that I have done / that have happened. Let's suppose I have waiting for car insurance cert on my waiting for list. When it comes I will file it away and tick it off the waiting for list. If in the future as often happens with me I think "oh, did that car insurance cert come" how can I check without actually physically going looking for it- the number of times and the number of different things that I have to double check for takes up time. Knowing that I have done something and that I can trust that I have done it is, for me as important as getting clutter out of my head that I am thinking about doing. It is something that keeps me thinking about have I done this / done that.
I am using onmifocus.
I should say that for some important thinks I keep a diary of what I have done like the date I posted something or spoke to someone on the phone about something important.
What methods can I use for smaller things? should i keep a diary of everything that I do so that I know that I have done it and can just look at the diary to confirm that I have.
I do have a little OCD! sorry
