Hello folks, and first of all thank you Johnny for this great system!
I’m trying to implement J.D for my life instead of a corporate context. Been looking at personal use examples here (eg. My evolving J.D structure). I know this is highly subjective, but should J.D areas be literal areas in your life, or do you take liberties with this taxonomy?
For instance, my J.D areas based on actual life areas would look roughly like this:
- 10-19 Productivity & Self-Improvement
- 20-29 Health
- 30-39 Finance
- 40-49 Work
- 50-59 Home Environment
- 60-69 Digital Environment
- … etc
But personally my Finance and Health data are not that complex to the point they each warrant an area of their own. (In fact, these are probably the only area in my life where i never have any organisational issues because the files are of similar and predictable nature.) I’m tempted to squeeze the first three items into one area called, say, “Personal Life”.
- ?? 10-19 Personal Life
- 20-29 Work
- 30-39 Home Environment
- 40-49 Digital Environment
- … etc
My question is: those who use J.D for purely personal context, how do you decide what an area is?
