First off, I'm just out of highschool, and will be attending MIT this term. Thus I've been under hefty stress about getting things ready before I go, and what needs to get done when I move, ( I'm from Houston, with 2 weeks of winter, so it's going to be a tad diffrent ) and I'm quite nervous about the curriculum.
Anyway, I picked up the book, and REALLY liked the system. In two days I was done with it with about 12 pages in notes. It's already made me much more calm and focused on what I need to get done.
While I recognize the great flexability in the system, I'm having a hard time getting my organization system working correctly.
While I have a love for computers, as well as a treo700 that I used in the past for general to-do lists, I've never really been comfortable using an eletronic medium.
So I'm going to be using a paper based one, but im having problems setting it up.
The idea I seem to be leaning to at the moment, is using index cards for each next action item, and filing them into my categories. (I think im going to go with "general" for school related or major items, "minor," and "Errands." So I can have a card with it's notes and the next action neatly stored. But this isnt as compact as id like ( I want to be able to keep it with me at all times), so I may just be going with a notebook seperated into sections as my second option if I can't get it to work.
Anyone have any ideas on a good way to set this up? Also, while it's not the method i'd like, I would be open to programs for the treo that people use, because it would be the best way if I could find a program/system I like. I've seen a few posts on the outlook program, but thats not an option for me.
