This week's tip comes from thorstenvpk, who suggests simplifying to a few lists. Without further ado:
I am overwhelmed with tagging, contexting and all that prioritization stuff.
Only 4 lists are in my RTM setup:
The main list: collecting all the stuff.
These 3: 'Should', 'Could', and 'Would' are Smart Lists with the criteria of priority 1, 2, and 3.
- Should: these tasks have to be done by due (or hell freezes) – the must do
- Could: these tasks have to be done – if time is given for them
- Would: these things are on my wish-list, hope to get to them
Life could be so easy without the traditional to-do lists.
