Having been using the Getting things Done system for a couple of months now I feel like it is helping my personal organisation. I still have some way to go in terms of working out a complete weekly review and I could probably do with doing the ‘collection’ stage again.
However, my main query at the moment is around ‘contexts’. i.e. the context of an action such as @call, @email, @computer etc).
What do I do about the ‘@computer’ context? Most of my work is on the computer; most of my work can be done anywhere thanks to my Macbook and most of my work uses a combination of offline and online computer work.
It is getting to the stage that most of my contexts are @computer which doesn’t really help decide what to do next in any given context!
I did try '@online - home', '@online - business', '@computer - home', '@computer - business' but due to the merging of internet and computer a lot of my work is a bit of a mixture of both as it didn't really seem to differentiate - hence moving to just '@computer - home' and '@computer - business', but it now feels a vague and daunting having so many @computer tasks. I’ve started using time to try and split these tasks up but I wondered if anyone had any bright ideas about other ways of differentiating context whilst working on the computer?
I’m using Things for Mac & iphone
Thanks in advance.
