Indeed you will find they respect you more because of your clarity and for being so organized and thoughtful.
Over time you will find that you have entered several “someday” items, which are often just idle thoughts you have had.

Because you have had days or weeks with them in the back of your mind, they will have grown on you with further ideas about them – never forgot because you have listed them in Doit.im.
Often you will find that the smallest tasks are quicker to do than to make a task for them, and so you may quickly jump on the phone to get them done in the moment.
