I would be interested to hear how folks link GTD with goal-setting.
For example, if I set a five year goal, I would then naturally chop it down into a series of yearly goals, then chop those into quarterly, then monthly, then weekly goals.
From there, I've been thinking about just allocating a "next action" to that weekly goal (perhaps with a due date) and then moving forward on that goal by doing the action in the right context (e.g. @work, @home)
The problem here, it seems, is that you might not do enough context-based "next actions" on that weekly goal to actually reach the goal within the week.
It seems you would have to plan out the goal steps in detail and then allocate specific tasks to specific days to make sure you do enough to meet the deadline.
But going into that much detail seems to go against the intuitive GTD approaches of "do it when it feels right" and "only plan as much you need for the next step".
How would you suggest linking GTD and goal-setting?
