@Waiting For Me...
Hello GTD Fans,
I use an @Waiting For list all the time and this morning, while in the shower of all places, I was reflecting on just how useful the @Waiting For list is!
It's perfect for tracking what other people should be following up for me. Great to see it as a snapshot in a single list.
Then it hit me - what about creating the opposite (or mirrored) list showing everything other people are waiting for from me! In other words a "@Waiting For Me..." list?
To see in a single list everything i've promised to people or to follow up would be great!
Right now I can scan down my lists and projects and get a feel for who's waiting for me - but to have it own it's own list/context would be easier still!
Currently, i'll pop a calendar reminder into Outlook or set a due date on a task as a reminder to follow up - sometimes in an electronic tickler file way too.
But to add a simple @Waiting For Me category/context and pop any such items in there would be cool!
What do you think? How do you handle your own waiting for's you've promised others?
