The answer is simple and straightforward: Minimalism. Don't fall into the trap (that I already did one thousand times) of GTD strategies and Time management Gods/Gurus (or whatever they call themselves) which aim to sell something "complicated" in order to present themselves as more clever and smart than us. Through my research crusade all these years to ...

I use a binder along the 43 folders concept from GTD: 31 sections for the next 31 days, 12 sections for the next months. Every piece of paper that requires action on a particular day gets put into the binder in the corresponding section (daily if less than one month out, monthly if more). Every morning, I process whatever awaits me for this day and shift ...

K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple Stupid) At the start of each day, I write a simple list with bullet circles in front of each item. I've found that 6 tasks per day is about the limit of what I can accomplish. For tasks that have a date to be done by or on, I put the date in the margin to the left of the bullet. Started tasks get one slash. Complete tasks get the ...

You can quickly set firm or arbitrary task deadlines and reminders and balance your workload and meetings visually. Furthermore it is easy to reference, and it is always there ...

Paper boxes might be a good solution. I mean the boxes printer/copier paper is sold in by the case, multiple reams per box. Most offices seem to treat them as recyclable trash, as do print/copy shops. I've seen them in sizes that would allow for 1 or 2 stacks. If you use the 2 stack size, they have to be pretty neat stacks to fit side by side, there isn't ...

I have upvoted Stephan's answer as it broadly matches my process, however mine is a little streamlined so I thought I'd add another answer: I have the 12 sections for the months ahead, but I don't go to the level of a page per day. Instead, I have pages for Immediate, Week Ahead and Rest of Month. To manage this I have 2 reviews per week - the key one ...

Short answer, yes. Long answer, if you're making your own resources, TPTB will likely not like the pricetag. Google "auto feed laminator". I came up with this Rolls Royce of laminators. Think of the businesses that might own one. Or call a manufacturer with your plight and see if they can help you track someone down. Lots of companies that manufacture ...
