Generally, I prefer including timestamps with every task, project, or note for the following reasons:
- “Then you’ll have it”2. (i.e. You never know if that will help in the future.)
- When reviewing my tasks and projects, the timestamp is a gentle nudge to moving something forward.
- If something is super stale, I’ll feel more comfortable deciding to punt it.
A penny for your thoughts! Does it really matter adding that information with to-dos and projects? Despite using snippets, am I still wasting time?
