I’m taking a page out of the Getting Things Done playbook and adding an Unsorted section to the top of my Workflowy* tree. I keep all my outstanding to do’s and unread bookmarks in Workflowy, but I found I was slow to add things because I had to stop and categorize them in the appropriate place. In order to reduce that friction, last week I started putting all new items under the Unsorted section and then organizing them at the end of the day. This is working much better for me and I’ve found myself putting even more things in here now. It’s a great place to jot down an unfinished thought because I will see it sooner than if I put it in Evernote or Google Docs.
