Just like every other project code, code gd0140 isn't just a set of 4 random numbers. It means there's 139 project-class tasks I've also got to do that came before it. I loosely defined a project as something that would take >2 hours and has multiple standard tasks within it, but I'm considering changing this to something that's actually project-esque.
This is the OneNote system I've got now, which I just call "Whiteboard" because I used to write all my tasks on a physical whiteboard:
The issue is resistance. Because it's somewhat tedious to open OneNote, then navigate to the relevant section and then add dates and tags, this system I have is underutilized. The reason my tasks are currently OneNote is because it was tedious to get the correct whiteboard pen colour and squeeze yet another task into a small space, and then manually rub out tasks when they were done.
Ever since the manual whiteboard solution, probably over 5 years ago, I've wanted to write a program that automatically does what I'm manually doing now in OneNote. I'd then want to create roadmaps or Gantt charts, as well as transmit task information to #Interval Provisional [gd0097] so that I can further track tasks that were attempted but not finished.
That's actually the main thing I want really: being able to go into my ToDo app at the end of the day and checkmark that I've attempted a task but the task itself is still unfinished. Take "Find PTFE for seal" as an example task. It's not a task I could further split into a subtask, and it might take 2 or 3 days to dig through AliExpress to actually find a seal, but only knowing that the seal was found on some date isn't helpful for Me In The Future trying to better understand / estimate how long a task would take, nor does it feel fulfilling for me on the days when I put effort towards the task without much to show for it.
I think I really have to just sit down and actually make meaningful steps towards a better system, because the absolute first project(s) in my brand-new-at-the-time OneNote system was to add all the tasks and projects I had in my mind.
