The ground level of the life management system accomplishes two things:

  1. It captures loose ends (notes, tasks, events, reading materials, and other inputs).
  2. It organizes the clarified loose ends (note: clarification happens during Review) using a Personal knowledge management system (which, if digital, should be backed up using a backup system).

The tools needed for this level are:

  • A note-taking container (app, analog, or a combination)
  • A task manager
  • A calendar
  • A read-later container
  • Other digital and analog inboxes (email, desktop, downloads, etc.)
  • A projects list
  • An areas list
  • A resources folder
  • An archive folder
  • A backup system

To do

  • create a note on how to create a back up system
