WorkFlowy in Action: Stephen Pickering’s Rules for Effective Tagging


September 26, 2011

Stephen Pickering sent us an email explaining his approach to tagging in WorkFlowy. We thought it was pretty interesting, so we might as well share it. 

Stephen puts a list of all his tags at the top for quick reference and filtering. After his tags he lays out all the rules he uses to organize his WorkFlowy. This layout allows him to be both consistent in organizing his lists and quick in accessing them. Here’s what the top of his WorkFlowy document looks like: 

In the relatively near future, we’ll make Stephen’s job easier by having WorkFlowy compile tag lists for you automatically. No technology, though, can free you from choosing a system to organize yourself and sticking to it, and Stephen’s rules seem pretty useful.
