I'm new to GTD - just listened to it on my audible Otis last weekend. Just one question that was nagging me while i was listening. what do you do with next actions for creative, time intensive projects? I mean, how can I break it down further - or generally speed up and be more productive?
I'm a freelance radio producer, recently I've been doing promotional documentaries for businesses and organizations. My projects have about a 10 week time frame. My work format is probably similar to any independent creative professional, so any freelance writers, film producers, whoever, I'd love to hear your input.
Is this an effective next action:
Because that could take me a half hour or it could take me all day. Seems like I'm a perfectionist and time just flows by. Then I have no time for anything else.
"brainstorm ideas for script"
"write rough draft"
NO matter how clean it looks on my next actions list, the actual doing of the thing seems so unpredictable.
Thanks for this forum!
