  • What Lists Do You Keep in Your System

    I thought it would be interesing to see what lists other GTD users keep in their GTD systems, and maybe I'd get some good ideas.

    Here's my list 'o lists:
    • Activities to Do - places to visit, sites to see, local activites, etc.
      Beers to Try
      Books to Buy
      Books to Read Next
      CDs to Buy
      DVDs to Buy
      Gift Ideas for Deb (my wife) - whenever she mentions something or I see something she might like.
      Gift Ideas for Me - when I see something I might like
      Local Restaurants to Try
      Movies to See
      Office Supplies Needed
      Recipes to Try - whenever I find a recipe in a book, magazine, on TV, etc.
      Travel Prep Checklist
      Wines To Try

    What lists do ya'll keep?

    I like to share lists too so here's mine

    - objectives/goals
    - Copywriting (tips/techniques)
    - writing ideas
    - pin numbers and bank logins
    - herb reference (medicinal cheatsheet)
    - home/crafts (room color plans, stencil ideas, crochet projects/colors)
    - open/hours (local businesses)
    - Inspirations
    - checklists
    - game tips/strategies/dependencies (I occasionally play strategy games)
    - telephone area codes
    - food nutrition
    - low carb recipes
    - GTD trigger lists
    - gift list/ideas
    - house things to buy
    - key people/relations (this one is in Bonsai and holds fav colors, interests/hobbies, medical/illness record, teachers/friends, etc.)

    Think that's most of them at the moment

        My lists are pretty-much by the book, so I won't bore you.

        But I want to nominate "beers to try" as my favorite list suggestion. It's brilliant. Because, by the time you get to the 9th or 10th, the "thinking part of the brain" has checked out. It's nice to have a list to refer to for the next order.

        (just kidding. Drink responsibly).
