  1. Great show – I’m also adopting a “bagua” system – might try that with calendars and email folders (I have it in Todoist, Evernote and Google Drive otherwise). I think that tagging is best left to be notes into a context…. I like the idea of different “steps”… but haven’t thought about what those steps are yet!
