Priorities at a Glance
NOKIA'S GLANCE SCREEN UX fits my workflow better than any other GTD process. That's because I can rearrange everything on my Lumia's home screen and when I do that, I can see my workflow above the fold at a glance.
Small numbers tell the story. Direct messages sent from one of my Twitter accounts to my main Twitter account appear as numbers next to the Kiwi bird. Those numbers (always in single digits) are the top must-do items in my day. I find it therapeutic to send those to-do tasks to myself before sleeping on them. They also show up in several other places but don't appear in summary form via the Windows Phone interface. I also make a dropped call to myself as a reminder that I've put the contact cards from specific people below the fold of the screenshot in this post. Those contact cards let me tap and call specific people about things on my to-do list.
In the case of my most important tasks, the items also creep above the fold in my calendar. I try to make time to get things done by respecting those things on my calendar. The text about those calendar items appear on my Glance Screen while using Desktop Mode on the Lumia 925.
The black Weave number are hand-rolled RSS feeds for different lists of people who write well online. I've categories for an A-List, Irish, Windows Phone, Cater Cousins and Research. I learn from reading online and from lisening to quality audio that I bring onto the home screen below the fold via Podcast Lounge.
The nondescript green background shows numbers percolating from the To-Do List in Evernote. It is tough juggling more than 30 of them at a time because at least one item gets added to my list every day. The current screenshot in this post suggests I am a month behind.
So it's off to get things done.
