Subject: Agenda Focus Mode - An Agenda Idea.
Date: Wed, 5 Sep 2007 11:46:47 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <3d6808890709050246t76d6662vcda9d9578d40d7d7@mail.gmail.com> (raw)


I keep a list of Project and Next Action verbs in my org file. When i
am creating a Next Action or Project headline i try and use these
verbs to help keep the language project and action focused.

For example my current lists are:

---- Project Verbs -----------------------------------
| Finalize | Resolve   | Handle   | Examine | Submit |
| Maximize | Organize  | Complete | Ensure  | Update |
| Install  | Implement | Set-up   | Design  |

---- Next Action Verbs --------------------------------
| Call  | Organize | Review | Buy   | Fill out | Find |
| Purge | Examine  | Gather | Print | Take     | Load |
| Draft | Email    |

'Focus Mode' is essentially the same concept as the stuck projects
idea. A tool to help me keep projects on track by ensuring that i use
more action oriented language for headlines . This is mostly for
tasks, but can be used for projects too.

I was thinking another agenda search type might do it for me.
Something like tags-todo-occur. Like tags-todo, but with a header
regexp as well.
Example Syntax: "<+-><Tag>/<+-><Todo>:<header Regexp>"

It is general enough to be able to be used by others, but i can also
use it to create my Agenda Focus mode. As i could not find any
mechanism like this i thought i would suggest it, to see if other
people might find it useful.
