I am thinking of purchasing a new planner for next year to implement GTD concepts. So my questions are as follows:
1) Are there any planners that people recommend? I've been using Franklin Covey but don't think that it has the flexibility that I need. I am considering Circa or maybe just a nice looking three ring binder but old habits die hard.
2) How do folks organize their meeting notes? Strictly by date, by standing meeting, by project, or some hybrid? I currently use a hybrid approach (by date and by standing meeting) but then it makes it hard to find meeting notes sometimes.
3) Does anyone use an indexing approach for their meeting notes? One of the folks that I work with numbers pages in his notebook with an index of meetings up front as reference.
4) What sections do people set up in their planners? I was thinking of the following sections: daily calendar (list of "to do's" that must get done that day plus my schedule in case I need to write it out), projects, and next actions (with a page by category), agenda items (list of things to discuss with people when you meet with them)?
Any feedback welcome!
