- Yeah, no problem. I decided to write up a post answering your question: http://jeffangelini.com/how-i-use-hashed-evernote-tags/
Let me know if you have any other questions.Jul 10, 2013

- Hey Frannie, how is your system coming? Have you made any interesting tweaks? ()Aug 8, 2013
- Something I'm not clear about: What's the functional difference between the "2. Next" Notebook and the "*Action" tag? It seems that a click on (or search for) either one will produce the same result. Am I missing something?Oct 30, 2013
- "2. Next" can also hold items tagged with "*Waiting For".
"2. Next" holds items that move a non-project forward. A non-project is something to complete that doesn't necessitate a lot of steps or planning.
It's a bit nebulous, as GTD defines projects as "your outcomes that require more than one action step" (http://www.gtdtimes.com/2010/02/15/managing-projects-tips-from-david-allen/), but creating a project notebook for a 1-3 step project seems like overkill to me.
E.g., when buying a cake, I'll probably just create a note with "Call DQ to order ice cream cake for X's birthday", tag it with "*Action" and "@Call" and put it in the "2. Next" notebook.
If DQ says they'll need to call me back, I'll give them my number and change the note to "wf DQ to call me back about ice cream cake for X's birthday", and then change the tag from "*Action" to "*Waiting For". I'll then be able to check up on it in my "*Waiting For" search when I want to see if I should be following up with anything. But it'll still reside in "2. Next".
If the GTD Project feels like it'll require a decent amount of planning and project artifacts, go with a new project notebook. If it's just calling someone to thank them (and you can't do it right away), stick it in the "2. Next" notebook. For everything in between, do what feels right to you.Oct 30, 2013
