You can also literally "put it in front of the door": I do that with things I'm planning

can put a vitamin bottle beside (or in front of, or taped onto) the breakfast cereal
so I'll notice them. For some things, I find it's more pleasant, and a few seconds
less time-consuming, to work with
physical things rather than having to read a checklist. I think that's quite within
the spirit of GTD: as long as you put it in a trusted system, it doesn't necessarily
have to be a written system.
