I have talked about this before but I just wanted to throw this out there to the forum to get some comments- mainly because y'all are so resourceful. Currently, I am in limbo. I have been using my PDA intensely for the past 6 months. It has become my trusted system from where I can pick next actions with ease while getting an overview of my calender and commitments at the same time. I also LOOOVE the small portable size. So you could imagine my own amazement when some unconscious part of me bought a 1/2" binder today at Target and proceeded to make a GTD Binder System like David suggests.
My problem (and decision to flirt with paper-based) has come from this: I sync my Palm at home only (due to techinical incompatibilities with my work machine). This means that I am constantly creating and collecting all day just to have it pile up at home for processing. This "process" has seriously caused me some procrastination with getting things IN to my system. Its a BOTTLENECK.
I would LOVE to keep the Palm PDA as my main tool, but I need more time to process my STUFF (which is ideal during work hours.) This is the reason why I am thinking that keeping the collecting, processing, action lists, calender, and address book in one place would help my situation- I could quickly add to the lists, cross things off the lists, and access information. The problem is that I hate the size, and I hate the rewriting.
I would love to hear some comments from people who have either had similar situations, and have also walked the line between digital and paper. Also some tips for my situation would help me out a lot! Thanks in advance.
I use Palm Desktop, plain with an older Zire model Palm.
