When using a Palm or other personal information management system…
Organise tasks by context
I carry a Palm with me almost all the time, and arrange my tasks in the
- @Agendas – Issues to discuss with people when I speak with them next
- @Anywhere – Tasks that can be done anywhere
- @Computer – At my laptop. This may also be online.
- @Home – Around my home
- @Karate – At one of my karate training venues
- @Road – While travelling or out and about, such as picking up some
salmon for sushi tonight
- @Uni – At University (I am in my final year of an MBA)
- Calls – People to phone
- Project – Some basic Project outlines. My detailed projects are stored
in Shadow or in MemoPad
- Waiting – Waiting for somebody else to do something with.
- Anytime tasksReview projects and ideas, and put them into memos, and ticklers, due
dates and milestones, and put them into datebook
- End of dayUpdate todo’s from Projects: memo->todo; Update “today”
memo (or, in my case, datebook/todo); HappyOMeter (record daily highlights);
Next todo for each category. Todo should record what should be done
