Hi all. I've read the book and a lot of the forum, but I guess I'm still fuzzy on why you would want to divorce your Next Action list from your Project list.
Perhaps I'm confused because of my working scenario -- a set of projects that always have a single Next Action. If there were multiple parallel actions I can see why you'd need multiple Next Action items.
But in this case, I'm left wondering if it's really necessary to build out a separate Next Action list.
I'm theorizing that I could instead indicate the Next Action right there in the title of the Project folder, like:
"Article on Confidentiality (Call Donna for details)"
And then put that folder itself in the @Call list, or whatever.
That way all the Project emails etc. are together, along with my notes in chronological order.
And then of course I can just move the project folder around as needed whenever I change the next action.
(For the record, I can't install any plugins and I need to do this inside of Outlook, so those are my constraints.)
Any advice appreciated! Thank you!
