Is there a guide or example any where about implementing Getting Things Done (or GTD) using Checkvist?
From the way I’ve done GTD every item needs a priority, context, and project.
Priorities are easy in Checkvist, they’re built-in.
In the past, with other systems, I’ve used a combination of tags and documents (or lists) for contexts and projects.
So I figure there’s two approaches, and I’m curious if any one has a third choice or if you’ve implemented one of my ideas and if it has worked.
Option 1: Separate lists for context and tags for projects (which is similar to my current system)
Option 2: Everything in one list with tags for both context and project
With Checkvist I’m leaning towards Option 2 so I have less lists to navigate. So all my to-do’s would be in one document (list) and they would have two tags: context and project. I would have to filter on at least the context and possibly the project (depending on my focus).
For example, when running errands I would probably just filter on the
#Errands tag; but at a committee meeting I would filter on
#PTA so I’m only looking at items related to the meeting I’m in.
In fact, because I find navigating lists cumbersome, I’m considering consolidating a lot of current documents into larger lists.
So if anyone has any GTD advice for a new Checkvist user I would appreciate reading it.
