I recently read GTD for the first time and wanted to try and implement some of its ideas.
I first had to decide on going the paper route or electronic. I decided to try the paper route first before investing in a PDA. I set up my tickler file and right now I am trying to set up a personal binder. Here is what is in it right now:
Calendar (May 2006-December 2007): monthly tabbed calendar 8.5x11"
I have a tendency to let things slip up on me so the monthly calendar helps with the "big picture".
Someday/Maybe: I used to keep these lists and my goals lists in my computer but I wasn't accomplishing much since I didn't review them often enough. Hopefully, having them in black&white will help.
Agendas: I have a separate section for my lists of people I have to meet with often/regular basis.
Now here is where I am stuck:
Do you keep separate projects sections for work and home/personal?
Or do you keep on master list for simplicity?
After reading other threads, it sounds like most people here do context lists. If you keep these on paper, do you put them all on one sheet or do you keep separate sheets?
Also, do you have daily action lists or just weekly?
And last: things that come up during the day
Do you wait to process them or process as they come in? I have a bad habit of processing as they come up and it typically ends with me off course. However, they might not get done if I wait.
