What do you do with "monitoring"?
By way of introduction, I'm a long time lurker, first time poster. Been doing GTD since 2006, but I still waffle a lot (too much micro-controller).
One of the issues that I'd like input about is in a fast-moving role in a large corporation, there are a lot of short term (i.e 2-5 days) things that come up (issues, events, and excursions that need follow up and are getting a lot of group attention/discussion, Sr. Management directives that are developing, etc...) that I have to keep my attention on, and may or not need action on my part, depending on how they unfold. Sometimes I have input and then have to wait, etc... I've tried to make them "projects", but then they go on my 50-60 project list, and it gets hard to figure out how to keep them more "real time". I find myself not being able to trust the system.
Anyone have experience, either sympathetic and/or beneficial in this area?
