I’m new to GTD and I’m eager to implement David’s strategy. My life is quite “mobile” so I must use my Palm PDA to create and maintain my “Lists.” By lists I mean my Projects, Next Actions, Waiting For, etc. I also sync with my desktop (Outlook).
However, a Palm does not have a good system for maintaining lists, sub-lists, and sub-sub lists. For example, if I have a “Next Actions” list, then inside that I have “Agendas” and the inside that I’ll need about 30 names. It’s a list, then a sub-list, then another sub-list inside.
What would be perfect would be Windows “File Explorer” and Word docs. However, Palm PDA’s do not have a “File Explorer” type folder structure or the Word program.
If I’m going to be viewing these lists every day, I think there should be an easy way to structure this List, Sub-List, Sub-Sub-Lists in a Palm PDA. It’s a very basic system structure; I don’t see why Palm doesn’t create something like this.
I’m not too keen on using David’s strategy of using Palm’s To Do’s for all my lists. He suggests to create a Category “@Agendas” then each person is listed as a To-Do and the things to go over with that person are Notes attached in the To-Do.
I don’t like this "To-Do" strategy because my Outlook sync will only allow 15 categories and Palm's "To Do" program was not really intended for this “keeping lists” purpose.
Memos will not work because I can only have 15 categories and there isn’t any kind of “note” field in “Memo.” Therefore, the “@Agenda” (with 2 more sub-lists) way above would not work; it only will work in “To-Do” because of sub-sub lists.
Is there something better for a Palm PDA?
