What GTD system are you using? I use FacileThings and they have something called "Routines" which allows a Next Action to be automatically created each day, a few days week, each month, etc. Whatever frequency I like.How should you handle recurrent reminders like ‘take medication’ for example in GTD? Im kinda struggling in setting this up.
I have it now in a single action project called ‘Recurring Tasks’ but I wonder if it can be done in a better way.
It takes you an hour to put on deodorant? I can usually get it done in 15 minutes, tops.I throw mundane recurring tasks into one of two checklists: Morning Routine and Evening Routine. I have an hour-long event blocked on my calendar at the beginning and end of the day for each. When it's time, I open the checklist and bang it out. I haven't forgotten to put on deodorant before leaving the house since.
I agree with Jared that some tasks don't really need formal documentation and monitoring. A post-it on your bathroom mirror might be enough to ensure you remember your medication every day. All depends what you need to stay consistent.
