Managing actions across project lists and next actions list
Hello all. I'm a GTD newbie looking for advice on how to most efficiently manage next actions across a project list and my full next actions list. I feel like I'm missing something and am hoping for some guidance.
I've got a project list in Excel that contains a project name, successful outcome and next action required for each project. I then have a full next actions list in Outlook Tasks, grouped by context.
How do I efficiently manage next actions between my project list and full next actions list? For example - If my next action for "Do taxes" is "Download turbotax", once I've done this do I have to open Excel, write down a new next action AND place that new next action into my Outlook Tasks next actions list?
I feel like this is redundant, and I'm sure that this is not what I'm supposed to be doing. But I can't figure out how to efficiently manage next actions across my project list and full next actions list.
I guess I could just not put next actions into my project list, but then I won't have my actions categorized by project, which I feel will be helpful in my weekly review.
