I'm a happy pigpog user. Occasionally, I even list more than one next action simultaneously. My main next action, which is an item in the Palm task list, looks like this: +Smith: Draft correspondence to opposing counsel. Project support materials, such as future next actions, go in the attached note. The task and accompanying note do not get deleted. Instead, as I complete each next action, I simply add a new one in the header of the project task. Although I generally only list one next action for a project, if I want to have more than one next action on my context lists, I just put a (2) in the header so I know not to store my project stuff there, and I can delete it when I'm done. An extra next action for the Smith project would look like this under my system: +Smith: Telephone call to client regarding settlement offer (2). I use the + so when I run a find with +Smith all my project-related stuff comes up. Some people put the project names in parentheses or brackets. One advantage of this system, among others, is that you don't need a separate project list because your next action list is essentially a project list in itself.
Aha! *this* explains why pigpog made no sense to me (BTW, I'm not the original poster on this thread).
I do NOT have a PDA of any type, so the workings of same are a total mystery to me. Even though I read the pigpog how-tos on the links list, it just didn't click.
Thanks for clarifying it, at least for me! I'll stick to my paper lists, Post-Its, etc., for now. PlannerPads arrived yesterday, but they don't start until April 1. Will probably make photocopies and write over the dates for Feb/Mar.
Am in the middle of brain dump--I think I'm at the scary point (Jeez, just look at all this stuff...), not the "Ah! Brain is Empty; System is Full" point, though. Hope to break through to the other side by tonight or tomorrow (DH is away for the weekend; my time is *only* my own, my dogs', my cats', and my clients').
