I am about 2/3 through the GTD book. I am going to attempt the extended implementation time this weekend. I like this system because it's realistic for ALL people, not just executives. I liked 7 Habits, but I felt like it didn't allow for the actual work I get paid to do. It seemed to suggest that I delegate those hands-on tasks, but those tasks are my job!
Anyway - my first question is - do you all use the tickler file in its suggested format (lots of folders)? I can't imagine that I will put very much in those folders, and if I do, it will be notes reminding me to add something to my NA list. I think it would work better to just write those reminders on my calendar. Has anyone else tried this? Did it work? Did it not?
