I use a 100% paper system and have a few questions for you GTDers. Since I need to have my lists (my paper planner) with me for those opportune tasks, I figured I’d just keep my capturing tool on my paper planner’s first tab. Does this make sense? Because usually what happens is that I use the capturing tool only when I’m in a hurry and couldn’t figure out right away where’s the best tab to park my random thoughts, or what’s the specific next action for that thought. Would it be better to keep my capturing tool ubiquitous and separate, while leaving my planner behind until I need to process those thoughts? Thus distinctly separating the tasks of capturing and processing. How does one exactly use the capturing tool? Is it a temporary placeholder for those thoughts that for some reason you don’t decide the next action immediately? Or it’s just because you don’t have your lists with you at the moment? I was wondering, did DA mention that the planner should be ubiquitous too? And just a thought, would it make sense to keep @home lists at home, @office lists at the office, etc.? Is it counter GTD to look at lists that you couldn’t do at the moment, such as @out list when you’re at the office?
No announcement yet.
