To make my list of Projects easier to search, I have put them in categories by my identified responsibilities and areas of focus. Examples of the categories are Household Daily Maintenance, House-Inside, House-Outside, Financial, Professional, Extended Family, Myself, Community and so on. I did this to try to make it easier to see if I already had a specific project going as I processed my massive amount of stuff (current and backlog) and also so I can readily check back after I have completed a n/a. But it does not work well for the latter and I find I have to do a lot of thinking. For example, a letter comes regarding an elderly relative's medical plan and I have to ask myself is this something pertaining to an existing project? I have to search Financial and Extended Family. If it is related to an exisiting project, I have to see if it is something I am waiting for or just something initiated by another person? Does anyone have a better idea? I am finding this searching my project lists less than inviting, it feels tedious and reminds me of how slowly I am accomplishing things. In each category I have at the bottom the SDMBs that fall within it. I wouls appreciate hearing about how others are managing their Projects' List(s).
