Don't worry I have specifically lazy tags dubbed "@work" and "@personal". It doesn't get lazier than that really (although I don't use @work often, since you know, work is subject to change. Rather a shortname for company I work for)
Also, I don't treat tags as tags, I treat tags as folders, based on evernote's best practice tagging conventions (e.g. an item can be placed in two places at the same time, by treating each tag like a "folder")
I do use this, this is why I never use the "!" operator and reserve it just for this scenario only, else I would pollute my google calendar.
My current list is sitting at 50 items. I am too lazy to do any of it today though (none of those are urgent, most are project based), this is the 3rd week I have been setting up my dynalist.io setup. Tomorrow is just massive sprint day catch up for me. I'm also kind of tired from working out yesterday too
As of now, its actually scaling pretty well. I could see it becoming a problem at 200+ items, but realistically I shouldn't have more than 100 items anyhow. Do note that I don't log things in that take 5 minutes usually either, and have seperate workflows for handling things with clients by emails and such. Over half the things I have in my dynalist are things like (Backup XYZ, improve workflow ABC, explore issue DEF)
I try not to do everything in dynalist. Dynalist can only do so much. You can't do things an excel /google spreadsheet can (e.g. scalable number of column / cell data). You can't document code well in almost any regular notetaking app, but rather dedicated apps (gistbox) . I think its important to be flexible, in that you can handle manual integrations with different softwares (hence my SOP manual which I finished writing mostly).
Your also pretty limited to things coming in from dynalist, like I can't RSS new ideas like feedly can or read new stories. Dynalist has some pretty poor workflows to bookmark management, so I have other systems for that too
I don't mind looking 2 extra places for something I cannot find. Its like finding a remote for your TV. If you don't find it the first place you look (your couch), place it the first place you look after. Same concept.
The remote is an analogy to your notes, TV is how you drive action, and your couch is dynalist
well true I could create a secondary document as well, I probably should
I skimmed parts of your blog, which was a bit hard too read (formatting), but I got the gist of it. I have really never used workflowy for more than 1 hour, and I decided I really did not like it that much compared to dynalist ( I really hate workflowy's Prezi like zooming functions, they bother me alot).
I don't really do alot of hardcore mathmatical formulas in latex, and my go-to has always been markdown syntax for general notes. I have dabbled in a bit of Katex and Mathjax syntax though, which are very similar but simplified versions of latex (also I don't really need formulas I got images anyways)
Why dynalist.io anyways and not workflowy? Just curious, what makes dynalist better in your opinoin (OR worse for that matter)? I've not explored it in much detail
