  • Teach me More to GTD than I Know !!

    elo ppl ,

    I am a student right now ,learning commerce and psychology,and just started practising meditation,so stress is off my chart list from some weeks.

    I need a lil help from the experienced and non-experienced in how else can i implement GTD ,coz what I've used ,i like it , or I can modify

    suprisingly my GTD implementation is so simple that I am scared i haven't implied it at all !!!

    All on computer ,

    for my capturing process, i fire up

    Mindjet MindManager ,and everything I can think of is on a mindmap , everything , using mindmap it's easy to categorize em in the mindmap itself.

    to process


    I transfer my tasks to outlook ,and I sync em to my pocetpc ,using Pocket informant & Agenda fusion , in which I've categorized everything under 2 categories which have their own subcategories

    @act -> contains next action sort of list such as

    @Act..Study
    @Act..Call
    @Act..Delegate
    @Act..Phone
    ---
    @location is the second one

    where all locations such as college,office,home,online etc are taken

    --
    @tools is one which I hardly use,which has something like pens,colors , basically something very specific if needed to complete a task

    whenever I go at someplace,i simply search on the basis of location ,or If I am doing a certain action .say call,i will again do a check on @act..call

    -------

    project implementation as of right now , now refined.very crass method
    that's all folks as of right now.


    how else can i improve my efficiency ,what have i missed,what more can i do ?

    Honestly, it looks fine to me.

    Are you feeling that this is inadequate?

        There are many other things you could implement, but you're entering dangerous territory here. There's always something else to try, but that won't necessarily make you more productive/efficient/etc. Indeed, it will often have you running around in circles.

        The big question is, what do you need? Once you've satisfied that, what do you want?

          I think I would skip @Delegate and maybe @Study depending what that means. You can delegate at a certain place (@Location in your terms, when see someone - @Agenda) or by a tool (@Computer or @Phone) so @Delegate category is not needed in this case. If you tell me what is the meaning of @Study then we could understand if that's skipable (you could also use @Location instead for example).

          Regards,

          Eugene.

            @study is for the action of studying , since i am a student,this is my major action

            @delegate ,is used in context with @location or @computer in sense ,if there is some work I have in college ,which i can't do unless he does it ,or he has to do it, i use delegate.

            I hope i am clear
