Underlying my flirtation with Things, which is ultimately doomed, is my continual frustration with contexts. I find that I can’t seem to get them right. Or I can’t seem to get them where I can actually work from them.
Part of the problem might be trying to schedule my day using a list grouped by contexts.
But I also can’t seem to figure out if a @work context should contain building a presentation for my day job and writing a blog post.
Should @house contain “rebuild garage stairs” as well as “pack lunch” and “make sure we have toilet paper”?
Or should that be divided into @house:chores and @house:packing and @house:maintenance?
I’m getting so burned out constantly thinking about getting contexts and perspectives to work. Not working from projects. All of the good word coming from Mr. Allen.
It’s enough to make me want to throw the whole system in the garbage. But it’s how I think now. Im just not very good at it!
Anyone else have issues with this? It’s incredibly cathartic to whine about it, but man I wish I could get it figured out well enough to be useful.
