One of my current status is I'll start w/ a next action, then 3 hours later I've wondered off. I've been doing work, but I'll bump into someone, think of something based on what I'm working on, etc. I'm not sitting and processing wigdets one after the other.
As you get new ideas or interruptions, or your current task is going beyond it's originally intended clear deliverable, do you stop and make some next actions?
example: I met w/ the system admin to outline upgrade plans (good)
next thing I know, I'm doing a system diagram, etc.
I probably should have something like:
-- Upgrade clearly planned and communicated
---- Meet w/ admin to discuss
---- identify work products
---- draft work products
---- review w/p with admin
---- review w/ management
etc. I might do the above in advance, or on-the fly as I'm thinking about it
I'm not really sure though.
