Yep, I've always liked your index system mouser. I'm using a modified system of it for a certain task and I just dare not yet share it with the forum because I'm not sure I've milked it yet but in the context of recipes - I think future posts could benefit from following this template:Ingredients:
- brand of label maker
- number of index cards per day or per set
- average number of groups per size of tasks
- 1 trash can (add additional if size of house is too big or size of heart is too lazy)
Write down lists on index cards. Preferably short listsWarning:
If your list looks wrong, you're doing it wrong.Step 2:
Group Index CardsStep 3:
Batch review index cards per group and throw out finished cards when necessarySize per serving:
Thick, hidden, small items, lots of white space
It's not that this format is much clearer than your own but, to me, the value of app's words lies not in her analogy but in the recipe format's ability to transcend and convey images of our actions generalized towards our own systems.
I am being hypocritical though in that I am not serving a recipe so ehh...
...but really methinks it's one of the better ways to have a standard outline for presenting our systems to each other without pushing forward too much of our own idealism and hopefully in doing so, we could have a GOE database that can fit on a document without heavy systems overriding light systems or concepts blurring what is needed to act the system out at a glance.
