Getting Things Done(GTD) is a fairly big deal in the world of professionals, and moving into an area with writers and computers. Here’s a little insight into my personal system.
In Tomboy, I keep 2 windows open at all times. First, a “Thoughts” window, which functions mostly as a sandbox. Here is where I throw every random thought, idea, delusion, hallucination, and so forth. I go through and clean out my thoughts sandbox daily. Second, a “To Do” window, which is sort of self explanatory. My to-do list branches off into many lists, wiki-style, based on due dates and topics.
Away from the computer, I keep a voice recorder, a file cabinet, and an “Inbox” for things that need immediate attention.
Does it work? Well, I’m getting a lot of things done.
