Hey, I first read about JD this morning and I’ve been excited all day about setting it up
One question I have relates to the GTD system.
I’ve struggled with managing my task lists for years, but starting last year I read up on GTD and started using it with Emacs Org mode as the tool for it. I’ve found it really helpful for me. It has been especially effective for short-lived items that I have to pay attention to and then close.
JD seems like a great framework for longer-lived things (my filesystems have always been a mess) and I will definitely use these ideas.
I’m wondering about that boundary between note taking, and short-lived tasks, and longer-lived projects and reference material. It seems like a no brainer that I can put reference material into JD, but I’m unsure about tasks that I do tomorrow and may never care about again in the future. Would they be clogging up the tidy JD system? Or is it just a case of using areas and categories in a scalable way?
Happy to hear any thoughts on this, and to be in a space where people are excited about this stuff!
