  • Making it all work & Outlook

    I'm reading Making It All Work, I don't think to be the only one...Isn't it?

    I'm finding this book very interesting because it helped me a lot to refine better my - not yet run in - GTD system. And I use Outlook as the "hearth" For example my system work better in defining the active projects and NA lists. I clear the projects list so now I rely more on my @office and @computer .... NA lists.

    Now a question for you:
    • Where would you keep Scope, Principles, Vision in the Outlook system?

    Well, the key question I have is why would you keep them in Outlook at all? Really, as long as they are somewhere you can find them easily, that's all that matters.

    If you must keep them in Outlook, I suppose an Outlook note would be the place to keep them.

      Why it's a good question. Even DA continue to suggest to use it! Note ...good point even if sometimes I forget to have a note....I'd prefer to have a centralized extended mind in the Outlook tasks. Also because each week I print all my tasks, I cut them and I put them in my moleskine when I'm travelling around.....

        At the end I decided to put in my project tasks. I add a .dot at the beginning so they are the first and in order as I used the original feet identification. Do not translate in the metric system! It change the correspondance increasing the confusion
