I'm new to this forum and I'm happy about it. So many fellows
This may sound ridiculous for most of you professionals, but I'd really like to know how to convert project's tasks into next actions.
Creating a project is easy: task1, task2, task3. Then regarding locations where to do them is also easy:
Now I know task1 belongs to the next action list subcategory @home, because I have to do this at first. But what about the other tasks? Is it good to write them immediatelly down to their context lists? Then it may confuse me because when I'm in front of my computer, I cannot "do" task2 because I haven't already finished task1.
Or should I wait? Only when I have done task1 @home, then I can put task2 to the @computer list? In that case it nevertheless looks like a fragment. Waiting till weekly review may endure too long time. So what to do? Maybe inserting at task1 within the @home list an additional information to put task2 into @computer after solving task1?
task1 (project x, subsequently put task2 to @computer)
And when I've done task1, I write down task2 to the @computer list (here also with advice to put task3 to @call)?
- Or maybe I'm completely in wrong way of GTD...
What do you think is the finest method to jump from one task to another by using your next action lists? Which techniques (or tricks) are most effective for you?
