I just read "Workflow Coaching in the Home" in the coaches corner and I really want to implement GTD at home as well as I do at work, but I still have one unanswered question. What do I do with all the mundane tasks that have to get done? I'm talking about laundry, vacuuming, testing the smoke detectors, etc. Where should all this be tracked, or should it? I know when I have laundry to do - the overflowing basket makes a nice visual reminder. I have already formed a habit of tossing in a load as soon as I get home from work and I do this regardless of whether it's on my action list or not. But on the other hand, I do feel like not having it on my list/calendar is like having an incomplete. Don't I need to take everything into consideration (home, work, personal, etc.) before adding anything else to my plate? If so, where do I put these items - on the calendar, on an @home list? At work, I put routine tasks on my calender to block off appropriate time to complete them and to serve as a reminder to DO them. Some of them I do daily, but I still block off the time so I know what I am committed to doing and approximately how much 'free' time is available. So should I do this at home as well? I already track big projects at home like "Purchase New Dining Room Table", but what about "Mop Kitchen Floor" - a task I try to do every week or so... Anyone successfully tracking this stuff at home? Are they calendar items or action items? Thanks for your advice![/url]
