  • Scheduling time for different types of work

    I found on the forum a recommendation of GTD couch to schedule time for Defining stage of work. That's what I do How about Doing Predefined Work and Doing Work as It Appears? I think it's very difficult to schedule. What do you think?

    Good questions! In my opinion:

    Some things benefit from scheduling time. Other things don't.

    Schedule where it helps, but don't try to schedule everything.

      I try and schedule things that are going to take more than an hour. I just find that it blocks out some time for me to focus on those items and it keeps someone from scheduling a meeting with me.

        I regularly schedule 2 of my contexts: @business-calls and @errands. Why? Because these tasks differ from all my other work in one way: I don't want to do them. I have to, but I don't want to. If I wouldn't schedule my weekly lot of those, I simply would not do them.
