Recurring tasks

The Beauty of the Recurring Task

I think I’ll input more in my calendar. I haven’t been as disciplined lately with GTD, so I need to get back on track. Using recurring tasks frees up my task list so it just has one-time tasks that need to be done.

Merlin listed a few that I especially can relate to:

  • Change baking soda in freezer & fridge (every 180 days)
  • Check for price changes on CD-R media (every 90 days)
  • Sift through spam folder for false positives (every 5 days)
  • Process outstanding Hipster PDA cards (every 3 days)

So I got to thinking:

  • Reconcile checking account online (every 3 days)
  • Clean car interior of loose trash (every 3 days)
  • Change garage door battery (every 12 months)
  • Change clocks’ batteries (every 12 months)
  • Run printer maintenence utility (every 14 days)
  • Purge refrigerator of expired items (every 5 days)
  • Purge medicine cabinet (every 30 days)
  • Run PRL update on my cell phone (every 90 days)
  • Check programs used on my computers for updates (every 30 days)

Chime in! I’m reviving the inital post on 43 Folders here, but keep the comments for recurring tasks you think most people would like to have “written down”.
