  • Organizing someday/maybe

    How do people organize their someday/maybe lists? Or do they? I've tried just listing them (hundreds)...

      I have one each for work and home, but they're pretty long. They contain a combination of printouts/hardcopy and lists of single-line items. It's some work going through them, I must say. You might use the length of them to decide whether some are worth keeping or not...

        I have just downloaded the new DateBk6 (Treo 650) which allows for Priority soarting (1-5) AND urgency (A-D) with many different sort options (urgency first then priority order etc.)

        I am going to try to go through my someday maybe list and rate them this way and see what rises to the top.

          I've seperated mine into:

          someday vs
          maybe

          and found this a very helpful distinction. The maybe category being things I may or may not want to ever do and the someday is where I park things that I know I want to do, but not this week.

            I like this idea because I can see how it would help offload the someday items, which would be checked weekly during the weekly review. But when would the "maybe" items be checked... I'd worry that they'd be on my mind because I couldn't recall whether they've been captured.

              I review both categories weekly, but it is nice to seperate the things which I might want to do sometime (I think DAs purpose for the category) from the things which I know I positively want/have to do but just not e.g. this week. This gets back to the issue of what is on your next action lists e.g. only things that you'll do this week (my choice) vs all next actions, etc.
