Dan Rosenstark, Author of MIDI Designer, muses about all things tech. Particularly: Notes on software development in Swift, Objective-C, and many non-Apple languages. Also: lots of random technology notes on OS X and iOS.
I can no longer fight it. I use Workflowy for everything. Using an external app for my todo list is just silly (though Wunderlist is awesome). So... here it is: Never have a task list. Use tags and build out your world wherever you are.
Every Node is #project or #task or maybe a #superproject
Everything else is somewhere above, below, or in-between. So most of your Workflowy tree is not seen in the searches below
In GTD talk, a project is a series of actions needed to produce an outcome
In GTD talk, a task is something you can do...
This could contain other subtasks
But these are the things that a project is going to use to represent itself on the big todo list
#next Last step before Complete
#waiting Waiting for an external event or person
#reminder In some external system like Reminders
Priorities get set by number of asterisks, consecutively, so highest is *****
Searches All the searches (vary the number of asterisks by deleting with backspace)
#task #next *****
#task #reminder ***** Tasks in a reminder system elsewhere
#task #waiting *****
#task -#waiting -#next -#reminder ****** Non-queued tasks for moving to Next or Later
