    here goes

    @agenda (prefix name with @ in the task like @alice @ted) -- but often many of the items in this category is taken care of in @calls and @email below. -- usually best use for @agenda is for monthly management meeting or weekly meetings with individual or group staff.


    @computer (doesn't matter home or work -- usually have a zip disk with me with work i need on either) -- drafting reports, putting together spreadsheets, powerpoint presentations etc.

    @email (separate from computer as i have a blackberry so i can crash thru a lot of emails while traveling)


    @home office (bills/mortgage/financial planning/filing at home/some calls that need info that i have at home rather than with me

    @home (stuff at home not in home office -- yard/fix it jobs, etc)

    @online -- web browsing -- some email where attachments are necessary

    @rd/rev/decide -- general category for reading / reviewing/planning/deciding items -- if somethings stays too long in here it will start to putrefy and stink, so it's a dangerous parking place for next actions.

    @wtg -- waiting on stuff (i also put delegated projects in here.

    i keep someday/maybes and project lists elsewhere so not to clutter up todo application in palm with anything but next actions.

    @office (don't use this one much except when i need to run a big copy job or something that requires stuff i have in the office and not elsewhere)
