Right now, I think I'm spending more time relabeling my lists and re-organizing than actually getting things done.... But, I'm feel myself moving in the right direction, so there is progress.
I downloaded Kelly Forrister's podcast, which was very helpful and I completely get the context thing now. But, I have two new questions.
The first has to do with interacting with others. How do I overkill with setting contexts for being in front of somebody? I could easily have 15 contexts by people's names alone. This would work fine with paper folders, but it would be a lot to sort through with Outlook.
The second is with Project Lists. Do I set up a master task list that has everything I need for complete the project and then multiple items that are categorized by the project and the context?
For example, say I need to create specs. Would I have a create specs project with a create specs task in Outlook that lists all of the actions I need to do to complete the project. Then I would have separate tasks assigned to contexts to complete the project (e.g. one might have a category of Create Specs and @Computer or @Call, etc.)
