I have way too many tasks in my list, and am trying to organize, weed, etc.
One thing I need to understand - I don't have a lot of REAL "due" dates, in my tasks -- but I need to be "triggered" to do things (or at least TRY to do things). I've been using far more START dates than due dates, but I'm now thinking that DUE DATE MODIFIERS might help me.
How would I enter a task, then, to TAKE A LONG HIKE every 4th weekend; BUT, if I skip and don't get to it (e.g., there's an ice storm this weekend) - the task rolls to the NEXT weekend. Then, if I complete it, it moves forward another 4 weeks.
I'm thinking REPEAT EVERY 4 WEEKS from completion (?) with a DUE DATE AFTER this coming Saturday ?

Have you read David Allen's Getting Things Done? That sounds like it would be the place to start. Seriously, it is about controlling your tasks so that you do not feel overwhelming and all the energy just feeling that wastes.
If you fancy a more spiritual approach, you might like
You don't have to practice Zen to apply it, it just is based on a Zen kind of simplicity.
Thanks, guys -- I've visited both, and reading them / finding a way to make them fit me is tasks 100-150 on my todo list, unfortunately...
Until I get there -- functionally, how would you set up the "Take a hike" task that I want to accomplish?
