I guess I am just going to start reposting my questions, since all the answers got lost when the forum crashed. Here is the first one:
I understand that a project is a series of next actions, and that you can’t “do a project”.
So when I am doing my weekly review and I think of a project, where do I put in it? I should say here that I am 100% Outlook based.
I can’t put it on my @calls list (in Outlook’s Task section) because it is a project, not an action.
One thought I had, was to make a @projects list (in Outlook’s Task section), or create a Note called “–Project List” (in Outlook’s Notes section) and just list the various projects out in the note. This second method has a few limitations such as 32k limit, and no easy was to sort), it is essentially the same as making a list in WordPad.
• What would be the GTD way to deal with this?
• If you had a project, where do you notate it and where do you notate the various actions that makeup that project?
• Where do you notate the desired outcome? Is this even important to do, or is it enough to think of it w/o placing a note on some list.
• Let’s say that a project/action came from an email, Where do you now put that email (in outlook)? What is the process of purging it?
• What is the @Next Actions category/list all about?
