To Think About . . .
There’s no inherent structure to work. Work has no inherent unit. We make units; we make tasks, and projects, and milestones, and goals. But nothing about those is inherent in the nature of work. Tiago Forte

Discussion Forum > Alternate Ways to Design Master List

I have been an ardent fan of using a long list as my to do list - either I proces it by using AF or FV or FVP didn't matter. ( http://sathyawrites.com/productivity-planners/ )
However I found one intriguing problem about working on a task list that mixes both my work tasks, personal tasks, other project tasks. I tried using Peter Bergman's 6 boxes system, but it was little too complicated for me.
Using two separate pages/ even notebooks for my personal and work tasks didnt work for me. I wanted both the lists to be on the same page, but separately.
I found this system below and it seems to work nicely.

It basically has two lists one starting from top to down, while another from bottom to top. Based on the time, context I decide which task list to screen and engage with.
It's a simple idea, but I hope also to get more such inspiration to create such master lists.

This method has been around on this list since at least 2009. Search for stalagmite/stalagtite method.

Glad to hear it's still being used successfully!
