What good would that do?

I'll use Netflix as an example from my own system - e.g. a Waiting For item = Nextflix re: Star Trek DVD. When that DVD arrives in the mail I mark that off as done (if paper-based system) and make a new next action - e.g. Watch Star Trek DVD on my @ Home list. In my now digital system (Omni Focus) I simply re-title the action and change the context from Waiting For to Home.
There's very little friction in making this transition.
I know this seems really basic but that's what GTD is all about. Do this basic stuff with A LOT of volume.
Hope that helps,
PS -- in Omni Focus I have top-level folders for each GTD Horizon of Focus (10k to 50K) and Neflix lives in Bills & Finances within Areas of Focus as Netflix is not something I finish but want to maintain.
How did you capture that thought?
