  • its all jumbpled together.

    I am mostly done with the book, and am wanting to go ahead and start the process of gathering everything into in to start processing it.

    My biggest problem is I am kinda confused.

    I am suppose to create lists of projects, someday maybes, incubate and next actions.

    So does that mean when I am done i have 4 basic lists?

    Then from there I further organize them into @computer, @desk, @home, etc...

    the lists thing still has me a bit confused.

    Thanks

    Yes, there are 4 basic lists.

    Only the next action list is organized by context, since the context defines the resources needed to do the action.

      I like to think of there being 4 key action categories:
      • Projects
      • Calendar
      • Next Actions
      • Waiting for
      Most people further subdivide Next Actions into contexts, i.e., where it's possible to do them, so that they don't waste time looking at inappropriate work. These are typically @Agendas, @Anywhere, @Calls, @Computer, @Errands, @Home, and @Office.

      In addition are folders for project support, and Someday/Maybe.

      You're doing great - stick with it. I think it will "click" as you get deeper into it.
