Everdo makes it easy to get started with getting things done and more importantly, helps you maintain the trusted system. Here you can see some what that entails.
At first, the "stuff" on your mind goes into Inbox, then you process the inbox and move each item into a more appropriate place:
"Next" view combines all your actionable items from active projects and standalone actions into one list. You can then filter the aggregated list by your context, time and more. This makes it easier to pick the right things to do right now. Projects can be configured to have parallel or sequential actions, which controls how many actions from each project will be included in the "Next" list.
There are two ways to schedule an action:
Deferring an action will move it from "Inbox" or "Next" to "Scheduled" until the date you specify. On the start date the action will be moved to "Next" and also become focused to make sure you don't miss it.
A repeating action will automatically make a focused copy of itself according to the schedule you specify.
Areas act as global filters separating major sections of your work and life, for example Home and Work.
Contexts help you pick relevant work, for example @groceries or @calls.
Labels you can use to categorize items in any way that makes sense to you, for example priority, hobby and so on.
You can filter "Next" or any other view by these tags, including positive and negative filtering.
An additional way to pick the right work to do is by available time and energy. For example: you may choose the most challenging work at the beginning of the day and leave the easy stuff for later.
