-In the parlance of [[Getting Things Done]], a Tickler File consists of a series of 43 file folders: 12 monthly and 31 daily folders. Items are filed in a folder corresponding to when the item will need to be handled, thus reminding or "tickling" the user about it. These items might be action reminders, bills, receipts, reports, letters, or any number of other things.+

-There is an [http://www.davidco.com/tips_tools/tip17.html informative article] on [[David Allen]]'s website that covers the Tickler File method in detail.+

-* How to remember birthdays and annually recurring events: Print out a list of the days in each month (31, 29, 31, 30, 31, 30, 31, 31, 30, 31, 30, 31) in a straight column down the left side of the page. Write the birthdays beside the appropriate days in the list. Put each list in a monthly folder. Offset it (i.e. November birthday list goes in the October folder) so that a birthday during the first week of the month won't mess you up. Now each month when you dump that list in your inbox you can add the next month's birthdays to your calendar, and plan on cards, gifts, parties, and so on.+

-Although a 'tickler' might sound a bit radical, it's an old established technique. Try it out: you'll love it. --[[User:Robert Brook|RB]] 15:10, 25 Mar 2005 (EST)+
