Still plugging away at getting GTD into my life. So far it feels pretty good and honestly has helped me sleep better at night knowing I think I have everything out of my head and in a tickler file, a list or filed away.
To help make it easier to track my personal list I developed my own tracking system that I can access from my home computers or from my PocketPC phone from anywhere. I hope to use this more instead of writing things down or using the Tasks side of Outlook to avoid re-duplicating the input. BUT I want to insure I do not decide I'll wait until I can input since I'll likely forget about it up front.
The list is simple but effective with Context, Next Action, Project, and a few other fields I will change as needed. Like all code I've written one can click on the heading to sort up/down and can click on the Context value to filter by that value. Clicking on the Action edits the project/action item.
I hope to use this while at home and away via the PocketPC phone to view, filter and act on my Next Action items in the context I am currently in where ever it might be.
