Feel like you're spending more time organizing your tasks than actually doing them? This simple time-saving tip from dwbrown77 takes advantage of Smart Lists to help sort your tasks with minimal effort:
Many GTD solutions force you to spend more time categorizing etc then I feel is worth it (in many cases). So I have a simple system:
I set up saved searches for my most frequent categories: Calls, visits, buy, email etc.
When I input I always make sure that the appropriate word is incorporated in the phrase.
For example "Call Bob Tomorrow".
I know that I can go to the saved search "Calls" and will find "Call Bob". Simple? Yes. Time saving? Yes!
