How Do You Make Your Projects Lists?
Having bought and read the book, I'm just beginning to implement the GTD system.
I'm not sure how an entry in a Projects list would look, and by extension, how the corresponding next action for the project would be listed in the next actions list. It seems there would be a desire to cross reference one with the other, so that when reviewing projects, you can quickly see if you have already defined a NA for that project in the NA list.
Maybe I just didn't absorb this from the book properly.
For example, do you follow the following format?
Project list entry: Date, Unique number (for referencing in NA list), and Project description (clearly defined outcome)
NA list entry: Date, Unique number (for cross-referencing to project list), and next action.
I'm implementing the lists on paper, and only digitally using a calendar, so I'm also curious as to best practices for space given to each entry (e.g., continuous list with no skipped lines, or one item per page, or list with blank line in between).
Samples entries from projects lists and next actions lists, and how you operate between them (and waiting for lists) would be most appreciated.
