ok, so I've been reading a little more around the web.

Am I right to say that if something has a hard due date, it shouldn't go on a list at all, but on my calendar?

If so, then since most projects have a hard date (at least for me), should all projects go on my calendar?

It's all so new and confusing. But exciting.

thanks!

hi all,

I'm new to GTD and Toodledo and am trying to get my head wrapped around the concepts and practices.

I've been a 'to do list' guy for ages. I get to the office in the morning and write out my to do list for the day. Or, if I'm at home I'll enter a to do list on my computer for later use.

I ALWAYS assign a due date to everthing. For example: as I'm sitting here, I'm remembering that my expense report has to be done Monday the 21st. So, I'll enter 'expense report submitted' and place a due date of 6-21-2010.

Am I to understand this is incorrect (according to GTD)? If so, when are due dates used and how do you keep track of things that must get done BY a certain day?

I'm sure it's buried in this forum somewhere but I've exhausted my patience to dig. Please feel free to point me to a post or otherwise.

Thank you so much. I'm excited at the prospect of getting more done with less stress.

Best,

brett
