Implement GTD for college
I am new to Toodledo and to GTD in general (still reading Getting Things Done). I am trying to create a proper set up that works well with a college environment and GTD. Currently, I have the following folders:
No Folder (Inbox)
I also have folders for each of my classes I am taking.
I am wondering if this a good solution, or is there a better one out there you would recommend. I want to try to stay true with the concept of GTD projects, contexts, etc.
You'll have to see what works best for you, but remember that in GTD any action that requires more than one step is a project, so if you are going to use folders as projects, you may wnat to have different folders for each class, grouping the multiple actions that way. So a mid term paper in class X might have its own folder.
You may also want to use subtasks (if you are a Pro) instead of folders in this manner.
The easiest way to do this might be with tags.
I am in university right now and just getting into the GTD swing of things. Since I have so much e-mail coming in I keep a project list in gmail with GTDInbox which lets me organize all my project reference info that comes in e-form.
I then either email or use my firefox toodledo plugin to add tasks to toodledo.
I also use nuevasync + google cal for my calendaring.
Of course, I also have a paper-based inbox and files which I haven't quite got around to setting up...
