Today\u2019s post is an encore of Dee Jay Doc\u2019s interview last Thursday. I\u2019m incredibly impressed with how he put together his \u201cAction Flow\u201d. Dee Jay Doc is going to run us through the basics, but you absolutely have to zoom in, hit some tags and tinker with his shared list to see how all of the moving parts of his system integrate seamlessly. It is well worth highlighting that Doc does a fantastic job of consolidating to-do items within individual project workflows and those in fixed daily schedule lists. He also uses a hybrid of date\/ month tags - everything coming together in his tag indexes. You\u2019ll most certainly want to take a page or two out of his book, since many people have found what he's achieved in his Action Flow to be painfully elusive. There\u2019s also a lot of magic here for those of you GTD fans. Here\u2019s last week's question I saved for today: FRANK: Do you have any of your own home-grown tips and tricks which you wangle out of WorkFlowy - anything that you\u2019ve been dying to shout out aloud? Because now\u2019s the time to do it! DOC: My life can get complex because I run the Fresh Camp, create my own Dee Jay Doc music and help my wife with her handmade jewelry business. I\u2019ve been tinkering for years with WorkFlowy as well as other task management systems. I really appreciate your new book, Frank. It got me into the next dimension of WorkFlowy use. Here\u2019s a few things I\u2019ve been doing to help manage my own workflow: AREAS I can filter my whole system by area. This helps me focus on one aspect of my life: FAMILY\u00a0(#fam) FRESH CAMP\u00a0(#fc) OCEANNE.NET\u00a0(#oce) (My wife\u2019s handmade jewelry business) Goals "#goals" is a shortcut that expands all my yearly, seasonal, monthly and weekly goals. This is very important so I can check in with my deepest, most essential goals and make sure I\u2019m doing what\u2019s most important. Sometimes I get so caught up in the matrix of tasks, due dates and stuff that I can\u2019t seem to perceive the most important objectives of the week and stay up on what I need to get accomplished this month. Contexts I use a lot of GTD principles, in that I collect in an inbox (Reminders on my iPhone). I process them. I organize in WorkFlowy and assign contexts. I will check my @office context when I\u2019m in my office, but I can usually only do a few things on any given day, so I spend more time in my Day views than in my context views. I try to schedule my week out this way and take work in chunks. TODAY Inside the Today node, I have three buckets, \u201cPriority\u201d, \u201cCall\u201d, and \u201cIf I Can\u201d. Each of these operate the same way. I can write my priorities for Friday in the Priority node with a tag @f. I can do this ahead of time and\/or on the day of. They can be in any order because I don\u2019t spend time just looking at the priority node. Instead, I click @f on Friday. This filters all the @f tags from the three buckets. It also filters out my schedules for all days except Friday. I love this view. It gives me an overview of my day. If I am zoomed all the way out to \u201cAction Flow\u201d, and I click @f, I can see my Friday along with any other task from any PROJECT or NEXT BUCKET that is tagged @f. I can leave it there or drag it into my days PRIORITIES, CALL, IF or SCHEDULE. Another cool thing that I could NEVER do in a Calendar program is click on the context tag of the context I\u2019ve scheduled myself time in. For example, at 1pm on Friday I\u2019m schedule to go into the studio. If I click @studio, I\u2019ll see any task with the @studio label (I do need to click on @f to remove it from the search, or else I\u2019d only see the tasks with @studio and @f).
