Today’s episode of Research Like a Pro is about how to choose items from your next action list based on your time, context, energy, and so forth. Engaging with your next actions list is how you actually get things done in your system. We’ll talk about tools we use and how our circumstances often dictate what we choose to do at any point during the day. Join us as we discuss getting our family history projects done and making the right choice of an action at any given time.

Learned a lot from the Getting Things Done series. I’m using the steps as I work to write the narrative of my father’s life. I’m starting a new 2020 Research Notebook! Keeping organized is critical to success. Thank you Diana and Nicole. I started genealogy in 2008 with Ancestry. My go to spot for all learning is Family Locket❤️
Great! I’m so glad that you’re making progress on this wonderful goal.
I was listening to this episode while driving yesterday, and I heard you discussing different tools to help implement GTD. Since you use EverNote for other purposes, I was surprised I didn’t hear you mention using that for GTD. I’ve found that “The Secret Weapon” (https://thesecretweapon.org/the-secret-weapon-manifesto/setting-up-the-secret-weapon/) meshes best with the way I think/work, but a simple web search will turn out many other suggestions.
