PS the above is from my "implementing GTD - MY WAY" project

Posted: Jun 10, 2010



Here's an example of my project planning using TD - this is a cut and paste from a master task note (status set to planning):

*PURPOSE*
--------------------------------------------------------------------
To lower stress, be more effective at work and at home, to be happy.


*PRINCIPLES*
--------------------------------------------------------------------
I am not doing this because I want to spend forever finding the perfect GTD system.
Want to able to run a SIMPLE system - low overhead

*VISION / OUTCOME*
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Simple and quick GTD management, quick collections, 24/7 access to my system.
Happier me, with less "overhead" in my brain taking me away from important things like having fun with my family and friends.

*BRAINSTORM*
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Read the book again from scratch, need a good collection system for this - evernote?

24/7 access to the system - make use of smartphone - consider 5" and 7" tablet phones
Is a tablet phone not workable - too big for short pockets - able to stay in your pocket when doing active things like camping?
Sequence of events to re-structure TD
Use TD searches for issue logs
Need to build in "prompt" so that when a next action is completed, I go back to the project and select the next action - put project name in task name? - use tagging? (already used for energy)
Need a way to ensure I can select the next action using context, time, priority and energy filters - TD slim and andoird apps dont allow this - consider 5" and 7" tablet phones - demo with TD slim? can it fit in my pocket? etc.
Need a way to monitor waiting for tasks - reminder every Friday to chase all waiting for tasks - reminder every day to review top priority waiting for tasks and chase them up
Set up electronic "tickler" file system - read up on this in GTD first
Build in 50k to runway reviews - consider how vision prompts, TD goals and folders relate and can work efficiently
Build in next action selection by context, time, energy, priorty filters




*ORGANISE*
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Read GTD book for at least 30mins a day, jott down actions into brainstorm list
Set up searches based on context/energy level/time?


*NEXT ACTIONS*
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Read GTD book for at least 30mins a day, jott down actions into brainstorm list



Hope this helps,

Derek.

I have started using the following prompts in my project notes:

*PURPOSE*
--------------------------------------------------------------------


*PRINCIPLES*
--------------------------------------------------------------------


*VISION / OUTCOME*
--------------------------------------------------------------------


*BRAINSTORM*
--------------------------------------------------------------------


*ORGANISE*
--------------------------------------------------------------------


*NEXT ACTIONS*
---------------------------------------------------------------------

It works very well with TD.

Hope this helps,

Derek

Interesting post organizergirl, I have Got to Do installed on my phone as well, but I find setting my browser default page to toodledo slim to be far easier,

http://www.toodledo.com/slim/index.php#_top

This interface allows the use of tags which I use for low/medium/high energy ratings to assist me in choosing tasks for action "in the moment"

Ideally TD slim would have searches and length tabs to allow me to work on my phone as I do on the laptop.

However, I am considering buying a Dell streak - maybe with a 5" screen I could use full TD interface..?

Hi FS,

Everyone plans projects differently, here's a nice summary of GTD planning:

http://gtd.marvelz.com/blog/2007/08/28/five-phases-of-project-planning/

I typically dont feel the need to plan very detailed multi level outlines so I can use toodledo for my plans, I use Proximo's method of GTD on TD. This method uses the parent tasks as projects, you can then use the notes in the parent task to define the project:

*Successful Outcome*
-

*Organize*
-

*Notes*
-

*Journal*

I use the first two headers above to scope out projects before I add subtasks in TD. The second two I use to record project notes.

There are of course many many ways to plan projects, its all very personal and subjective, have a good look on the various GTD forums and "cherry pick" what suits you.

By the way I use MS project for project planning £90m construction projects at work, its fine for reporting progress, changing order of work, but very unwieldy. In my view its best to keep things as simple as possible.

Hope this helps,

Derek.

Could the Scheduler be set to schedule "stars only" as an option?
