I'm sure some of you guys have seen my previous posts and some of you have helped me revise my GTD system. So here is my GTD system revised. I'll try and explain it as best as possible to my ability.
1. Hipster PDA - I use the Hipster PDA for my ubiquitous capture tool. I write down all my thoughts as well as important data (phone numbers, events, test dates, etc.). The next time I make it to my inbox (which is a pile on my computer desk at home), I throw all index cards from hPDA which have been used into my inbox.
2. My Inbox - As soon as I have time available, I process my inbox. As I stated above, all incoming data and thoughts, written down on 3x5 index cards, are collected into my inbox. I also keep a few stationary items in there as well such as daily, weekly, and monthly lists as well as my checkbook and project planner. Processing the inbox comes next.
3. Processing the Inbox - My daily, weekly, and monthly lists are the first thing I process in my inbox. On my daily list, my first thing is to complete my homework and the second is to process my inboxes including e-mail, notebook, and my physical inbox which I am typing about right now. As I come across projects, I title the project and write down one project per page in a medium-sized planner (9.5 x 6in, 80pgs, college-ruled) to leave room for any planning. Each 'next action/step' I need to take gets written down onto it's own index card and placed into my inbox. Phone numbers go into an index card filing box where I keep all contacts. Important events and dates are imported into my soon-to-be paper planner/calendar (right now, I'm using 30Boxes). Receipts from using my debit card get written down into my checkbook. If my 'next actions' can be done, I will do them. If not, they are left in my inbox.
I don't think I have any holes in my GTD system. I'm not really having any trouble with it. If you guys think I can upgrade it somehow, I'm open to any constructive criticism. Thanks
P.S. I just got a new job where I'll be working 20-30 hours a week! I'm excited. I know some of you guys are more 'acquainted with life' than I am, so I was wondering if you guys have any tips for it being my first job and all. Not just GTD tips either, but work tips that will help me be a better employee and become successful.
