comment What is the most productive way of maintaining a TODO list on paper?
Don't get offended, I am not suggesting my solution as the right one and everybody else's as wrong. We post our own sides of what's "right" or "wrong" here and the people choose the best answer. If you wish you can go on and give your own opinion and see what people will say. I can't see much value in a discussion where someone's against an electronic device e.g. a smartphone and seems to me nonsense.

@Venture2099 we are living in 2014 and not in 1750, so don't you think some things have changed? Have you tried writing down on paper a bookmark you wanna see later and then try to enter it again in your browser ? Or maybe organise your todos by context (e.g. #office ?) Have you tried to open a notebook on a bus full of people and take out your pen to change something on the list rather than pick up your smartphone, sync with the cloud and click on the task to remove and archive it ? Also, does tasks on paper alarm you to do things ?

@TheIndependentAquarius have you used any strategies that failed before or is this your first attempt ?

+1 for the screenshot and your custom approach.

comment How to keep up with a todo application?
your suggestion should work with people that have 20 things to do in their lives and can handle them in a paper. When you deal with big projects which have subprojects and dozens of tasks, personal life tasks and trying to run some personal business in parallel with a 9-5 job, then you'll realise it's just theory. What counts is being super organised - missing a task will fall on others like a domino effect. So If you have a little time and much things to do, you don't have the choice to make a mistake. Prioritisation and organisation keep me running and doing.

Can you be more specific? The things you ask are answered free by a simple search, so what's the point of starting a bounty with +500 reputation ? Even for GTD what you ask are basic principles. Help us to get a better reply suited to your needs.

I think that you got what I am asking. This is the situation, discipline is missing. Or overwhelming of much stuff to administer. I've literally tried dozens of apps, notebooks, cards, papers, strategies and some are way better than the others but even the best fail for me because I lose track very easily. I haven't kept an app for task and time management more than 3 or 6 months. The only thing I am sure is that GTD is the most interesting and working implementation of life management for me. So, you describe the problem very well but what's the solution ?

I agree with you but I cannot see what does it have to do with my question.

I believe I was clear - I have tried everything but usually I get bored or there are too many things to do that I lose track and the TODO app I am using gets forgotten.

@TorbenGundtofte-Bruun I disagree with you. I don't need to read another self-improvement blog post, I have begun to feel disgusted to read the same things over and over again.Come one, who doesn't know that deleting things frees up space of any kind? It's like asking "how do I replace a flat tire?" and replying "you remove it and place the new in its place". I have read GTD and books of the same kind like a thousand times - I need a better reply than Inbox, Delegate, Schedule, Reference, Trash.
