GTD without anything done

Spent an hour or so setting up RMilk to resemble … somewhat GTD system.
Though I doubt any system in the world, no matter how sophisticated or fool-proof, could get me to do anything productive more than an hour a day, three days a week.

Somebody said, ‘I love the sound of deadlines whooshing by.’
Probably Douglas Adams. Good man.

Projects: start with dot “.”
Contexts: start with at “@” (well, there’s also nifty RTM’s Places that need to be set up)
Persons: start with underscore “_” (Bruno is so my favourite person right now~)
Inactions: start with minus “-” (e.g. “-waitfor” “-someday” “-maybe”)
Actions: start with plus “+” (e.g. “+read”, “+simulate”, “+write”)

And thanks to RTM’s Smart List, now I have orderly, colour-coded, clean-looking, all-in-one to-do lists.
To tell me how many deadlines I have already missed.

Part Two coming up.
(because I realise that blogging this post is hardly called ‘productive’)

  1. For implementing GTD you might try out this web-based application:

    You can use it to manage your goals, projects and tasks, set next actions and contexts, use checklists, schedules and a calendar.
    A mobile version is available too.

    As with the last update, now you can add or invite Contacts, and share your Projects and Contexts with them.

    Hope you like it.

  2. @Dan: Thanks :) Sounds like a great alternative.
