Project tasks beyond the next action
Apologies in advance for what feels like a stupid question, but:
Say I'm processing/organising a task, and realise that once I've done that, there'll be an action straight afterwards (say, 'review notes', followed by 'email summary to my boss'). I'll set up a next action (or put it in the calendar if has to be done at that time) for 'review notes', but I can't figure out what to do with the second of those actions:
- it's not a next action
- I can't put it in the calendar - I might not even have to, in terms of it not having a deadline
- it's not a 'someday/maybe' action
- waiting for doesn't feel right at all - especially if I'm setting out a project with many actions, it would just become cluttered with tasks I can't do anything about right away
- it's kind of a natural consequence of completing the first action, but surely GTD finds a way of recording it as a specific task up front?
I can't recall this being covered in where I'm up to in the book. And apologies again if this keeps coming up.
Thanks in advance!
