Hi JasonI will "Due Date" a project if it has one. I don't know of a circumstance where I would due date a NEXT ACTION. Either, it's for me to do as SOON AS I CAN, or specific to a date.
I find there are some NA's that are "in between" the two areas you mentioned.
Its hard landscaped to a certain date, because it must be done by or on that date.
If its by a date, in the meantime, the NA may be a relevant choice for you to attack depending on context, time, energy and priority........
I put these types of NA's on my context list (Palm or PPC) and due date it. I set up my Datebook application (Datebk5 on Palm, Fusion Agenda on PPC) to **only** show those NA's that are due dated for a particular way.
To me, this is the best of both worlds.
As you said in another post, GTD is wonderful in its simplicity and for the fact that no 2 implementations are identical.
Thanks for always giving us an insight into how you operate. Its appreciated.
