I have experimented lately with a better tag structure for Dynalist that both incorporates GTD (Getting things done) and Second brain or Zettelkasten(Personal CRM, Personal wiki, Thought incubator). I think these techniques will be useful to anyone who don’t want their tags to devolve into a mess.
For GTD I like to make clearly defined edges and I want my tasks not to get lost among my other tags. I also find that using the tags inline as verbs works better for my brain as it forces me to make evey action actionable .
- “##!Draft proposal to X”
- is better than:
- “Write proposal to X #Draft”
Every task gets a context that shows me where I can do it.:
For Secondbrain/Zettelkasten/personal wiki I like to do it like this:

Feel free suggest what you would do to improve on this setup. Or just to ask why in the world I would do such a thing.
