Managing tasks should be fast and frictionless
If you’re not careful, you can spend more time cataloging your tasks than you spend actually performing your tasks. I like to say, “ Stop playing with your tasks.” When I used TickTick I had lists and in order to move a task out of the inbox you had to put it into a list. Putting the item into a list gets you no closer to actually performing the task and is unnecessary overhead. The only true metadata you need for a task is when you intend to do it, or when you should reconsider if it is actually important enough to schedule.
