I've read the book, and am anxious to try to take the plunge with the system.
But how does one handle lots of small, recurring tasks?
Like a lot of people, I work with a set of very ugly todo lists, stored as word processor documents. Every day, I make a new list. I take the stuff I didn't get done yesterday, add new things I want to do today, along with anything from my calendar, and then I cut and paste a block of recurring tasks that I want to do every day.
The recurring tasks are mostly small, stupid things -- check my plants to see if they need water, look at my bank's web site to check on my account activity, take my vitamins, etc. It would be nice if I remembered to do them all on my own, but I don't, which is why I started putting them on my todo list. I have about 15 of them that I run through every day.
I'm not sure how to handle this sort of thing in the GTD system. The calendar seems closest to this, but it doesn't seem quite right. These tasks are recurring, but that's not exactly the same as time sensitive, or rooted in a specific time, and besides, they would tend to clog the calendar up.
