identifying the perfect next action
As an individual contributor, I try to get into, and stay in, "flow".
As a project lead, I am often pulled out of flow by the demands and many directions of my projects.
So, I wonder -- if my next actions are at just the right level, is it possible to move so seamlessly from action to action that I never get 'out of flow', even though I am moving from project to project?
Maybe I can even use 'flow' as a metric on how well I am capturing my next actions? That is, if my day is so all-absorbing that I am surprised by how soon it is time to call it a day, I can say that I am creating good next actions -- and if the day is disjointed, with fits and starts and wildly varying energy levels, I can say that my next actions are not seamless, are not really written at the 'action' level, and should be improved?
