GTD on Yahoo! Calendar

GTD on Yahoo! Calendar

Chris Wright has written a 2 parts articles on describing his GTD setup in Yahoo’s calendar. I thought his article is pretty good, as there are not much GTD users who have implementations on online services. In the first part, he mentions couple of important aspects in the system including calendar, tickler file, notepad, and addresses book. In the second part, he talks about the actual step by step setup on Yahoo! Calendar. I think tickler file system is probably harder to manage online, but I really like his idea on it:

… I’m an advocate of moving things away from paper-based systems, and the tickler file is one area of GTD that looked like it might be a hassle to maintain and check every single day. What happens if you want to add a tickler for something that could only be actioned upon at a specific location? Would you maintain a separate tickler file, one for home and one for work? If you were on a paper-based system then you’d definitely need a tickler file at home as you cannot check a work filing system on weekends. It seemed like quite an inconvenience, so I integrated the tickler into my Yahoo! calendar by adding tickler entries as all day events and prefixing the title of the entry with ‘Tickler: ‘.

The Lifehack Show Episode 6: On Friendship and Belonging

In this episode, we talk with Dr. Kyler Shumway, Doctor of Clinical Psychology and author of The Friendship Formula: How to Say Goodbye to Loneliness and Discover Deeper Connection. In his earlier years, Dr. Shumway was a target of bullying; he also found himself plagued with social anxiety, which he still battles today, yet also uses as an empowering guide to help others overcome social anxiety and form solid, lasting friendships within their own lives.

Dr. Shumway is an advocate for friendship and believes that: “… together, we can bring an end to the bullying problem by breaking the chain of suffering, daring to be different, and creating a world where everyone belongs.”
