One of my struggles over the past few months has been finding a time management system that works. I have tried every system out there over the past year and I have to say I’ve finally determined that time management systems are extremely personal. What works for one person will not work for another and even if it does work for another person it may work in an entirely different way.
So I’ve found what works for me is David Allen’s GTD or Getting Things Done system with pen and paper. Call me old fashioned but I like the feeling of using a pen to cross items off my To Do list.
I use a separate page or pages for projects.
I use a separate page for diffent contexts of tasks: @Computer, @Desk, @Home, etc.
I cross reference projects and tasks using numbers and letters. Letters for projects and numbers for tasks.
Like I said it works for me. But I’d love to hear what works for you?
