This seems so basic, but I am confused about using Outlook 2007 for GTD - primarily because I don't understand how to distinguish between Next Action (NA) lists and Project lists. I DO understand the difference between a project and a NA.
I downloaded and read the whitepaper on GTD and Outlook 2007. I set up my contexts (using Outlook's categories) and I understand that I will be adding NAs and assigning them categories/contexts so that can view my NAs by context.
What I don't understand is where to list all my projects. The whitepaper suggested making a category/context titled ".Projects". Does that mean that my category/context for Projects would consist of individual "tasks," (according to Outlook's nomenclature) with each Outlook task being a separate project?
And my other category/contexts would consist of the actual Next Actions for each context?
I think I'm confused about whether or not I'm going to use Outlook's Categories to identify both contexts and projects.
Thanks for any help anyone can provide and please, be gentle with me.
