GTD Mastery 100: Step 11

To read my complete journey to GTD Mastery see the main post.

Step 11 to GTD Mastery is: I have a list for tracking “Waiting For” items.

In my implementation, I use ThinkingRock to manage my Waiting For (WF) list.

When you create an action in Thinking Rock, you have the option of setting its status to delegated (i.e. WF).

Delegated item


The “Delegated To” field stores who I’m waiting for. The “follow-up” field stores when I have to contact the other party for an update.

GTD treats WF as a context itself (i.e. @WF). However, ThinkingRock creates a list of all your delegated actions. Therefore, I don’t need a @WF context. I use the context field to store where I expect the action to be completed. In the example above, Kim Tang will return my DVDs at school.

ThinkingRock lets you view all your WFs in a delegated tab as seen below. I sort them by action date (i.e. the follow-up date) to see upcoming WFs that I have to follow-up on.
