So I’m running through Menu of the Day and am realizing how out-of-touch I am with some of my process. There are some interesting things I’m already noticing:
- Schedule Grid is a convenient note-taking area…needs to be bigger. And the damn grid dots need to be aligned better! Some useful emergent task notation happens here too.
As an emergent PLANNING tool, though, this isn’t working for me. I ran right back to TextPad and made my simplified ToDo list. What’s interesting, though, is that the PROCESS was to list things I needed to do, group the related tasks together, then make a guess at how much time it would take to tackle is task group. The Schedule Grid, though, helps get a sense of the amount of time in ways I didn’t expect…cool!
The best way to execute this form, I’m increasingly thinking, is as a smart scheduler / outliner software tool, combining elements of a “thought processor” with tracking and reporting.
p>Out of curiosity, I’m wondering if anyone out there is willing to share what they’re doing today in this post’s comment area, describing the steps taken to get the ball moving. I think everyone will find it interesting, and it might give me some insight into why this form isn’t working right. Thanks!
