Thanks guys, appreciate the responses and they will definitely help me improve my system.

I asked this question at a few other sites as well, and have compiled the results here: http://docs.google.com/Doc?docid=0AWQsCliUjhCHZGZtd3NwZDZfN2hybXp3bmM0&hl=en

A few GTD questions, I have. (Master Yoda)
Where do actions go that must be completed on a certain day and can only be completed on a certain day? e.g. talking to a person you will be in the vicinity of on Wednesday, etc. (Ticklers, Next, Calendar, Waiting for?)

What about actions that are waiting for the inevitable - ebay promotions, exchange rate fluctuations? Someday/Maybe or Waiting for?

And again, what about actions like listen to podcasts in my idle time, or actions like a daily jog?

Lastly, do you use a separate GTD application from your calendar application, and if so, do things like call jim at 9 am go on the cal or GTD app?

And specifically to Toodledo: how do you implement a focus list (i was thinking, focus: star. due today. priority high), how do you implement sub-subtasks and how do you format waiting for tasks (I currently do /Persons name: task)

Would love to hear some input.

Looks fantastic mate :)
Only problem is that it doesnt go too well with your toodledo for all w/ sidebar theme.
On that note, what is the difference between the w/ sidebar and without, because switching between the two I don't see any changes?
And I have been having some issues with the style that I am not sure how to fix, I posted about it here:
http://forum.userstyles.org/comments.php?DiscussionID=17990

And an addition to that is that since upgrading to plus, the button to click and go back to the task list is gone now :/ So I am using another theme temporarily now.

Decided to upgrade to Plus today after a bit over a week of use :)
In beginning my application of GTD, and one of the things that I need toorganise is my data on my computer. Any tips on folder structuring (e.g. D:\Projects)? I will be deleting anything that I can, however I am still going to have a heap of stuff - what I can I will put into a note application (evernote or springpad, haven't decided yet).
Also, I need to sort my Firefox bookmarks :P Over 2000 to go though. Will be setting up my note application first so any information I need to keep can go in there, but any tips on how you sort yours?
And lastly, I was wondering how a task would be dealt with if it has a due-date, but can be done at any time, provided it is before that date. Toodledo allows setting a due date, would you do that? I know the calendar is sacred for things that must be done at a specific time/day, but wasn't sure about this.
Cheers

@Proximo
cheers for that.
One question I have, is how do you separate next actions from a focus list? It seems as if there is no real focus list, because the stars are just used for next actions. Anyone have suggestions how this could be implemented, along with the todo iphone app?
Cheers

Still wondering this, but just have another question :P sorry for the questions :)
How should I use things on my tickler list?
Say I have a task that I want to start at 4pm on saturday, does that go in my tickler list and then at 4pm on sat i move it into actions or deos that go on my actions list with a start date of saturday?
Cheers
edit: I know it could be done different ways, but I would be interested to hear how people on here do it :)

We plan to add both of these features to our iPhone app.

Nice, I was searching up and this is one of the features I would love to see, any ideas on a time frame?

+1 in favour of Smart add. Especially on the iPhone. IN FACT, I OFTEN EMAIL TASKS TO MYSELF BECAUSE IT'S FASTER THAN ENTERING THEM USING THE IPHONE INTERFACE.

Right here too. Really needs this it does.

Posted by Proximo:

My Context are based on Location or Area of Focus.

Work, Personal, Proxstud (My website)

I now use Tags for Context that are specific to a tool or resource I need.

Phone, Email, Internet, Errand, etc.

I recently added the Tags as a second level Context field to be more specific on the resource or tool I require.


Love your setup :)
May I ask out of interest, why do you use resources and tags and locations as contexts and not the inverse?

I was also wondering why you used folders instead of statuses?

Is waiting for intended to be used (in terms of the GTD system) as a folder like someday/maybe or as a context?

Lastly, I saw in one of your later videos that there was no actions folder, instead there was a next folder. Are you using this for the same thing or is it changed?

Ah okay, wasn't sure whether it was confirmed or just as you say a wishlist.
The ones of that I would look forward to most are multiple contexts and a project section.
Okay so they obviously don't provide a roadmap then.
Cheers mate

Posted by Proximo:
1. Project Section (for better managing projects)

2. Sub-task functions (So they are easy to reorder and show up according to their status)

3. Multiple Context (To assign @Work and @Email, etc.)

4. Tags (better use of tags, how they are assigned and accessed)

Are you saying these things are on the way? I have just signed up for the toodledo free account and am comparing it to rtm, if these features are on the way then i am pretty damn sure i'll be going with toodledo :)
Cheers, look forward to a reponse to this

@richard: I believe it is Mind Manager from the looks of it - a free alternative to this is Xmind.

@mallozzi: Just wondering, how do you implement the status sections (action, hold, next action, etc)? As in where do I enter that in my tasks?

I am just trying out toodledo for the first time, and after a long hard search I have narrowed down my choice to rtm or toodledo - this is for implementing GTD obviously. What is everyones opinions on these two options? (obviously there will be a bias :P) For now I will be using the free version of Toodledo most likely - so projects will be folders.
