  • Do you guys keep your action reminders?

    For all the paper based GTDers
    Do you guys keep your action reminders or just trash it, throw it away when the action is finished?

    For now, I've mostly been erasing them and re-using the paper, or recycling the paper if there's too much writing for it to be worth erasing it.

      Hi, gtdnubcake!

      I throw the completed actions list (e.g. a Calls List where all of the calls have been made and checked off...) into my weekly review folder. Then, during the review, I go back over it to catch any follow-ups I missed or remind me of any other related actions I need to do.

      THEN I trash it. Quickly and unceremoniously.

        I use Frixion pens for my lists. If the page is still in good shape, I microwave the paper (the heat erase the Frixion ink) and re-use it. Recycle bin if it's too worn out from rubbing (erasing).

        Before I microwave/recycle the pages, those completed actions are recorded elsewhere though -- either in the project support file or my journal. That allows me to backtrack weeks later when I wonder if / when I made that call.

          Trash

          I used a Time/Design system for years and tossed my lists. I can't recall an issue with that strategy. If you need some of that data later I'd suggest using other lists - e.g. "Projects Completed" or filed away in reference.
