I KNOW this query has been covered in earlier threads – in fact I think I may have contributed to those threads myself, but I cannot recall the solution.
I have just completed a major overhaul of my GTD system, and I have EVERYTHING captured in project lists. (The sense of completeness has to be felt to be believed! Also, my organiser is suddenly a very beautiful thing, surrounded by an aura of peace and possibility. I mean it!).
I have updated the Next Action lists for most of the active projects, (another pleasure - it means that I have taken over the steering wheel in things that matter most to me). But here is my query. In a purely paper based system (customized Filofax) what is the best way to make sure that repeating tasks are carried out? For example, my work projects include – read financial pages every day; update staff work schedule daily (rather than the twice weekly as before).
Apart from writing them down every day in my diary for the rest of the year, I can’t think of any other way to get these actions to hit me right between the eyes first thing every morning at the office.
