With two busy professionals in the same household, dividing chores around the house can be tricky. Dividing chores in a fixed way is one solution. But one can quickly get bored of doing the same thing everyday.

A Simple GTD List Solution: Desktop, Web and Possibly Mobile

I have been searching for a lightweight list solution since I started trying out the Getting Things Done (GTD) approach a few days ago. Unlike calendar events, list items (projects and actions) do not associate with a particular time and date, therefore, using a calender for them is not appropriate. According to David Allen, for lists, we should "just go for simplicity, speed, and fun". Here I operationalize that into these properties:

  • Simple, but can still do these:
    • Handle lists for "project", "next-action", "waiting-for" and "maybe"*
    • Be able to tag an item with "context", and organize items by context
    • Support sub-list
