  • 2 TODO lists ?

    I have read GTD and am implementing this now... but I have troubles of my todo list
    Say I have a project where there are current actions and someday actions
    Do I set this up like:


    Project
    - Next Action
    - another action


    Someday
    - Project
    -- Some action that might be on this project
    -- another maybe action

    I am a very newbie at GTD, but I could need some tips

    In my case, if anything is a maybe or if-then-else, then I put it into the project's support material.

    If the support material is just a few scraps of text, then I usually just add them as an annotation to the project in my GTD software, but if it looks like I'll have to make decisions and gather info, such as comparing products to buy, then I'll create a folder for the project and accumulate it all there.

      BTW: How and when did I become a senior forum member ?

      Is it based on number of posts?

        Have you really read "Getting Things Done" by David Allen?

        There are no "to do" lists in GTD. There are @context Next Actions lists.

        It is not possible to have someday/maybe actions tied to active project.

          Automatic Custom User Title is based on the number of posts.

          Yes. Automatic Custom User Title is based on the number of posts.

            It's best if you only have the next action in your lists, and potential/future actions in project support.
            I made this mistake early in my adoption of GTD and found that things would change as a result of having done actions, and you can end up with a whole heap of irrelevant actions cluttering up your lists.
            But you can have several next actions for each project, don't feel limited to just one, as often with projects there can be several parallel 'open loops', each with it's own next action.

              Yes. A "Senior Forum Member" has 100 or more posts. A "Forum All Star" has 500 or more posts.

                Mind like Popcorn could be...

                Does that mean that if I didn't opt for "Mind Like Popcorn" I'd be a "Forum All Star" by default?

                  Yes Barb! You are a Forum All Star, but it doesn't appear since you created your own.

                      I feel like the nerdy kid in the front row of class now. But you know what? I kind of was that kid anyway! (Mainly because I couldn't see)

                          I've been there and there's nothing ahead when you reach that point. No new goals to achieve. Just the post counter incrementing one comment at a time...
