I'm getting a little hung up on Contexts and I wonder if you can help. I have been really enjoying implementing GTD and it's taking me a long time- over a year so far. The 5 level view is really helpful, and I am starting to get real energy and focus. (I'm a slow learner.)
However I think I am missing something regarding the use of contexts: I can't get them to work for me. Firstly, I always have the resources around me I need to do most of my work. Phone, laptop, notes, etc. I don't need to have "@computer" or "@phone" etc because I always am. Am I missing the point here?
I am using Todoist to process my tasks, and I like the way the outline format allows you to drill into various levels of detail. But I don't really use the tags to much effect.
Is it more effective to use areas of responsibility to define my contexts? That would make more sense but seems a little obvious: So I might have "@Work", "@Home", "@Finances" etc...
Has anyone else grappled with this?
