Confession: I have a horrible memory. Always have. In some aspects of my personal life, it has served me well – but as a professional, not so much. So I’ve always written things down.
It wasn’t until I read David Allen’s Getting Things Done, however, that I discovered lists. I mean, I always knew of them, and I always used them in a jot things I need from the grocery store type of way but certainly not how they are used in GTD. I’m not going to go into detail about GTD and lists except to say if you have not read it – it is a good book for self help on getting organized.
Ultimately, there were two things about GTD that didn’t work for me:
The first was FAT – File Act Toss. These are your only options and not everything I touched could be filed under one of those categories. When I came across such a thing – I’d try to figure out a way to refer to it so that I could force it into one - which was not only a time suck, it was a waste of creative thinking.
The second thing in GTD that didn’t really work for me were the lists.
Don’t get me wrong, once I got the hang of it, I was pretty good at lists. The problem was they weren’t good for me. Why?
Back when I first read GTD, it was not very easy to sync devices. I’d
waste spend so much time seeking out and testing tech – trying to find the right combination to make all my lists accessible and update-able and synced across my desktop/laptop/mobile device. No matter what I tried, it never seemed to work. Again, huge waste of time.
In the end, I was so busy with my lists and trying to get and keep them synced, I was neglecting to do the things ON them!
To resolve the first issue with GTD, I actually came up with a slight modification – I added another category for “Defer”; rearranged the letters and it became the foundation for my organizational system: DAFT Your Way to Organized!
In 2008 Technolawyer published a condensed version – “Move Over David Allen, A Better Way To Get Things Done” and I’m actually quite proud of how I was able to get the pertinent information to fit on less than 4 pages.
Now to resolve the second issue I had with GTD, I stopped using lists. Seriously. Stopped.
I have and always will take notes and I talk about how and why I use paper in Getting Email Done <-(the non-condensed and non free version of my organizational system) but up until recently, lists had been a thing of my past.
Enter www.bulletjournal.com – which I am finding is to a task list what my DAFT is to email – a simple and effective way to process and organize tasks.
I’m still testing it all out – but I have begun to use my Moleskin as described at the bulletjournal site – part task list; part calendar; part journal – and I’m liking it!
I’m only into my second month – but if you want to follow along, the 1st of the month is a great time to start!
Grab a notebook – take less than 3 minutes to watch the video and start bulletjournal-ing with me.
If you do – leave me a reply/comment so we can compare notes!
More Articles re: lists:
It’s been 10 years since LegalTypist went from the black and white logo and olive color scheme created in FrontPage (shudder!):
to in full color (and css/html):
and I think her latest makeover is just as dramatic:
Not only is the design new – we now offer Digital Assistant™ time in blocks of 5, 10 or 20 hours per month – giving our clients the option to add administrative and secretarial tasks to their workflow for a fixed monthly cost.
Take a minute or two, click on the picture (or use the Home button above) to take a peek at the full site and then c’mon back and leave me a reply with your thoughts.

I am honored to be a part of #legalchat – co-moderating/hosting this informative, yet informal, twitter web chat with Natalie Alesi aka @legalerswelcome each Friday at 11am ET.
We start Friday, September 13th, so our first theme could not help but to be centered around the fact that it is a Friday and a 13th …
“Scary” is the overall theme and we welcome all peeps to join in and share your scariest tech moments – or scariest tech you’ve ever seen in use – or what scares you most about tech …
More about LegalChat and how to contribute:
Came across this really interesting infographic:
Don’t fall into the busy trap!
Busy is not the new black.
It’s just YOU, thinking that by being busy like everyone else, you’re more productive. You are not. Instead you feel rushed all the time, are more stressed and less happy. Just like multi-tasking, working more hours does not equal increased productivity.
If you need to get more done in less time, try:
1. getting organized so you stop wasting time looking for things;
2. putting systems in place to handle routine tasks faster;
3. get an assistant.
As much as tech CEOs and newly minted experts wish you to believe – tech can only increase your personal productivity so much. After that point, you need more fingers and brains in the mix; or you’re just the same human being, doing more things … now with more tech.
Don’t have enough work to justify the cost of a full time employee? Look to the world of virtual assistants to help. That is what we are here for!
While most Virtual Assistants perform higher end tasks – there are services around which do the day to day admin and secretarial ones too!

In September of 2008, Adrian Lurssen, Co-Founder of JDSupra published: “145 Lawyers (and Legal Professionals) To Follow On Twitter” a list which very soon thereafter blossomed to over 750 accounts for people to check out.
While that was a great resource at the time, more recently I noted that 100′s of the accounts on it were no longer active – making the list more of a time suck than resource for those looking for people to follow on twitter.
So I asked my assistant, Delilah, to cull through Adrian’s list and provide me with a list of only those accounts that are still active. Here is what she compiled, along with a few of my own peeps:
