Agree 100% with both posts above.
As soon as I finish an action, I do a little re-processing where I put away any outputs and define the next action.
I always have 2 next actions. The final action of each project is a symbol that means "define next action for this project". I use the recycling symbol ♻.
(1) Discuss injury with Doctor
If I can see a decision coming up then I may put in:
(1) Discuss injury with doctor
(2) ♻ Review doctor's response
meaning that I have to define the next action, but with reference to a previous output in case I forget.
If I have broken a big action into smaller steps, then I'll put them all in and finish with my recycling symbol.
I never discover projects with no actions at weekly review and I don't like trying to define next actions in weekly review as I find it hard to switch context from project to project.
