Step 18 to GTD Mastery is: I maintain a “Someday/Maybe list,” and regularly review and update this list during daily and weekly reviews.
1) Transferring active projects to your project list. Did you find some time over the holidays to start brainstorming for your Great American Novel? If so, you should have a new item on your projects list. The same can be said for any project you’ve set in motion.
2) Deleting unwanted items. Has someone already written and published what you thought was the next Great American Novel? If so, it’s time to delete it from your Someday/Maybe list and go back to the drawing, or writing board, as the case may be.
When I started practising GTD, I would usually just skim over my Someday/Maybe list without any deep thought about the items stored there. This lead to the graveyard that is my first blog, ttGTD.
Today, writing for GearFire is proof of a fresh and inspiring Someday/Maybe list.
