Q: is "Someday Maybe" the same as "Incubate"? Specifically, is the "Someday Maybe" list the same as the "Incubate" list? I am familiar with "Someday Maybe" from my first encounters with GTD circa 1st edition (in the 200Xs). Sticks in my head, like the country song. I encountered "Incubate" recently when I started listening to some GTD podcasts, from folks at David Allen's company. Also, in the GTD setup guides for various SW tools, some of which seem to say that SomedayMaybe=Incubate. But the GTD Workflow Map says Is it actionable? YES... NO: Trash/Reference/Incubate Incubate => Someday Maybe OR Date-specific Triggers I.e. Incubate is a superset of someday/maybe. SomedayMaybe is the incubate stuff that you don't create date specific triggers for, put in a tickler file. I may have forgotten the term "Incubate" from my first few readings, years ago. Not a big difference, but I like understanding. If only to create useful notes and folder names.
