I have a Boss who would like a weekly status report (just started a new position will eventually go to a monthly status report)
When I first read GTD I came away with do not assign due dates unless you can committ to them and they are hard and fast. (It causes stress and creates extra work)
However, My boss would like to see what I am targeting for the next week and when I am looking at first getting to some of the projects he has assigned me. This will also help us "renegotiate" when things need to be readjusted.
This information needs to be able to be printed out and have information like Title of Proj, Priority, % Complete, Target Completion. Right now I have this information in a stand alone spreadsheet. My tasks are managed via Palm i705 and MS Outlook. (Note I'm in a locked down environment, so Docs to Go doesn't work unless I send the doc home, synch and by then it has changed. [Eventually moving to Pocket PC to alleviate this problem]
My question is "What is the GTD way to produce status reports?" I cringe each time because I am duplicating data. But I can't avoid it.
Does anybody have techniques or additional info that guides you when you are doing this. I'm thinking this should work in with my Weekly Review. But what is GTD's view on assigning Target dates?
