Newbie question about action items
I'm working on implementing GTD. I am just a little confused about the next action list. When do you update it once you have completed an action on a project that requires additional actions? Once you've finished one action/task, do you immediately record the next action for that project?
Think of your next actions as bookmarks
Often times I choose a next action that's part of a project and find myself automatically defining and doing the next after that and the next after that. At some point I have to stop and at that point I define a next action (a bookmark) and put it in the appropriate action list. If I forget to do that the weekly review is my safety net.
