Last follow-on question: What are YOUR personal best practices for do you negotiating those tasks or events that come out of left-field that disrupt your daily schedule but cannot be scheduled / deferred?

This has probably been answered to the 'nth degree' already but I ask it nonetheless.

My problem with my GTD system (and ToodleDo) is what I call "surfing the wave". I paddle, get up to speed with my tasks/GTD system (i.e. "wave of tasks" / things to do) and successfully negotiate it every day. I've become highly efficient with it...but when it fails, it does so with a bang.

The problem comes when a) I go to sleep late or b) illness creeps in -> inevitably, causing me to go through the next day or two sluggishly. Motivation is there but I just can't pull it together. So invariably, all of the tasks / projects I have, with their time-sensitivity and dependencies to each other "roll forward" and the "wave of tasks" crash over me, tumbling me over and over within them.

I wind up wasting time "rearranging" the dates for the multitude of tasks I have to do.

Many of the tasks, I cannot delegate and even if I prioritize the tasks, lower priority tasks, if left undone, have unforeseen consequences later.

I budget margin where I can but is limited when I just have a lot of crap to do!

What am I missing here?

Can someone elaborate on how the "notebook feature" is to be effectively used?

Obviously, I can write notes about a folder(?) but beyond that - what's the practical utility to this feature? ..Can I get a 'for instance' how I might use it to improve productivity, etc?

I ask b/c it's pretty predominantly displayed now so I figure it must be important.

(p.s. there's not much in the 'help' section describing the feature.. I guess b/c its' use is supposed to be intuitive?)
