Power-Tip: Check-lists (aka sub-tasks)

Another power feature of Nirvana is the ability create check-lists (sometimes referred to as sub-tasks) inside your action notes. Use check-lists for things you need to remember as part of an action, entered as separate lines inside the notes field, each line beginning with a dash.

For Example,

New Action: Call Mom

Don’t forgot to discuss…
– flight # and arrival time
– gifts for the grand kids
– where she’d like to go for dinner

Hit Save, and lines beginning with a dash will render as check-boxes.

That said, if you need multiple actions to get to “done” you should really create a proper project with actions inside — all-the-better to keep your contexts, energy levels and focus/states current and your GTD system clean, clear and under control.

Happy Holidays from Team Nirvana

We hope you’re enjoying time with family and friends. We’ll be back at it soon, but for a few days we’re gonna focus on not getting things done. Happy Holidays!
