I’d love to see this thread (or new threads) get more attention from the community of Asana+GTD loyalists.
I dabbled in GTD years ago (many task managers ago as well) and I am just getting back into it now. It was getting to the point where I would stare at my tasks and projects and have no clue where to start. Just dusting off my GTD knowledge and doing some more reading and workflow tweaking has already shown benefits.
Now, my contribution:
I like the idea of private projects as contexts as mentioned above. Tags are universal and I think they will cause unnecessary clutter for my company (YMMV).
I plan to create saved searches that will act as the additional context lists so I can be smarter about it.
Say I have private projects of: “Calls to Make”, “Emails to Send” and “Office” contexts for example.
Then I can have a saved search called “At Office” that will include all three of those contexts (“Calls to Make”, “Emails to Send” and “Office”) since they can all occur at the office.
I can go into the individual private project contexts depending on my location, access to technology and desire to do work, or I can crack away at the “At Office” saved search that will incorporate all the tasks that I can do.
Does this sound like a step in the right direction? I’m sure some of you are already doing this or something similar.
Looking forward to more discussions on Asana and GTD.
