I've been walking around with the GTD book under my arm for about two weeks now. Needless to say, I think it is awesome, and mirrors the way I had been starting to approach tasks and projects, but much more comprehensively.
I have a handful of niggly questions and since it is on my NA list to post these questions , here they are:
1. Is a task a Project or a NA if there is only one action, but it will be done in chunks. For example, I want to read a book that I already have (don't have to go to library or store). There is only one action involved - read - but I most likely won't read it in one sitting. Should it go on a "Project" list or "Next Action"?
2. I find for some items, the next action seems to be "decide about." I really may not need to draft anything on paper or dicuss with anybody, I simply need to look at my schedule and decide whether it's something I want to participate in. How do you handle those? It's not really anything physically based.
3. I am a stay-at-home mom with a lot of recurring tasks but outside of that, many days have little structure and lots of interruptions. The other day I unexpectedly had to stay home (sick kid) and I found I kept having to revisit the NA list again and again and felt a bit disoriented, not having a daily todo list. I totally get *not* having a daily todo list, as they often didn't work for me anyway, but I wonder how well GTD works with really unstructured time?
Thanks in advance!
