Based on my own experience, I have to question how much value there actually is in getting "everything in perspective". I've tried implementing GTD with outlining tools -- and I've played with the demo of MLO -- but I find, as others have said in this thread, that the overhead of maintaining those project/subproject/action relationships is more than the amount of added productivity I get from doing it.Originally Posted by Steve Wynn
I know some people use MLO for their Trusted System and do well with it. But for me, the more complex my system is, the more time I spend messing with the system instead of actually getting productive work done. I've implemented the "Project as Contact" method with Agendus, as a way of viewing the status of projects, and even that has produced minimal return for me in terms of productivity.
For me, at least, the less effort I have to expend adding something to my list, the more I can expend getting it done. For me, "simple" wins out over "powerful".
