GTD Contexts

Thinking through how I set up my GTD contexts. I have a whole bunch of Agenda's that are for both meetings and individual people I meet with formally and informally. I then have the following. I am wondering if it is working for me. I had a chat with a bit of a GTD guru friend of mine who sticks to 8 contexts only. Errands, Home, Office, People, Computer, Phone, Waiting and Agenda.

I know most of you will probably say something like "there's no right or wrong" or "whatever works for you" but I would be interested in how others structure their contexts and how it works for them.

Chrome Omnibox (Address bar) Magic

So I accidentally discovered that there are some cool shortcuts when using Google Chrome.

  • "d" will take you to your currently logged in Google Drive account.
  • "k" will take you to your currently logged in Google Keep page.
  • "p" will take you to your currently logged in Google Plus page.
Nice! Think of all the time saved by cutting out those superfluous keystrokes!?

It rhymes with Jello! That's one of the things I remember from the introductory video. I am a bit of a GTD geek, like to be organised, and like (and need to) organise others.

I have toyed with the idea of using Trello because it just seems like the kind of thing that is visual, simple and nice. The Android app is an almost exact duplicate of the web based experience (which is also pretty sweet).
If you are managing a fluid and dynamic project that involves tasks that are composed of multiple steps, and that require moving tasks between group members as each member needs to contribute small amounts to the task, Trello just might be the tool for you.

I'd love to hear from those who use it regularly too.
