Onenote + Outlook setup
I am new to these forums and I am trying to implement GTD using Onenote and Outlook. Outlook works very well for tasks and such, but when it comes to Onenote, the complexity and flexibility leaves me feeling a bit lost. I procrastinate more than I actually take any action, simply because I don't know where to file and track items. Do I put a goal on a single page, do I create a separate section for each of my areas of focus, a new notebook? If I am working on my page for today and an idea comes up like "Develop an optimal life management system", what do you do with it? Copy it to another page? Create links? Tag and add it to Outlook without moving it from that page? How do you connect it to other things like area of foucs, goals etc and track that what you did was part of something else. A better example than the above would be "I have to write or read X or Y" which I know is part of the goal "finish my thesis" which I know is part of my era of focus "Student" for instance...what to do?
Any input is greatly appreciated! I really avoid doing anything at all because of this, like "clean my dishes" because I don't know how to track the fact that I just did dishes...absurd but real nonetheless..
