  • Braindead Tip

    I've got a tip for my braindead list that I would like to share.

    I like to keep my setup as minimal as I can. I only use context, start date, end date and repeat (and the last two sparingly at that!) I've been trying to incorporate a braindead list without adding bloat. I think I've finally cracked it.

    My solution is simple and doesn't need any extra columns: Just add zzz to the task name. Initially I started adding it to the start so I could find my braindead tasks together at the end of the alphabet. But then I realised I could save a custom search and add the sleepy zzz to the end of the name.

    Other things I considered were tags, folders and a separate @Braindead context, but they all had their downsides.

    Hope someone finds this tip useful!

    Sounds like a great idea. I use paper and was considering adding little coloured tags to some pages, that would stick out, so I could continue whatever file system and still also be able to find certain types of things.
