I'm sure my newbie question here must have been covered before,
but I just can't find any good search terms, so here we go again :)
While implementing GTD in a paper planner, I came across some items from my
pile of previous lists an notes that I can't quite fit anywhere.
"things to find in a fleemarket /ebay /secondhand, if the price is right etc."
"things to bring along to the summerhouse for various projects"
Or in more general terms:
"things to remember for bring when about to travel from one place to another"
1 looks a bit like a context, but on closer thought it would have to be
several (at computer, at fleemarket, at garage sale), but clearly these
things belong on one list not several.
2 Is harder.. I mean, if I where to implement lists for all my to-from
possibilities, I would rapidly get a _lot_ of lists...
I could put the stuff on my context lists, but I suspect I would soon grow
numb to those "to bring" items while I was actually "in context".
Both 1, and 2 is most often connected to projects, but leaving them there
would force me to do a full project scan when going to a garage sale, or
about to travel, so that is clearly not practical either.
So there you have it...
What would you do with a situation like this?
Or rather what have you done? :)
Has been holding up my implementation for a week now, this question, as I am
reluctant to process the full backlog and old archives into a system that
can't handle all the bits, so I wold be most gratefull for some good thoughts
on the matter :)
