I've been using GTD for a couple of years now. Right *now* I need to define a bunch of task / todo category names for my work laptop. (It doesn't sync with my personal stuff, and that's OK, btw.)
Anyway, I'm sorely tempted to leave the '@' sign off the beginning of each category name. I'm sure there's a reason for it, but I can't remember why. I do know that if I left it off, I could jump to categories much faster by just typing the first letter of a category.
That is, a few category names I will have are...
If I left the @ sign off, I can just type 'r' to immediately jump to 'recruiting' in my Outlook task list.
So before I depart from this nuance of GTD, can anyone tell me why I should leave the '@' sign?
