I'm very new to GTD. I've got my office and workspace set up according to the system's suggestions--including my 'tickler' file and my reference files. All of that stuff was pretty clear to me. However, I am still rather confused about the 'next action' lists and projects.
How are next action lists related to completing projects? I have a whole swarm of questions--I'm really quite confused, so I'll present a real-life example and maybe you can help me work through it:
I have to set up a training session for 8 new staff members. I have a date, September 23rd, a space, and a topic--but nothing else! I'll have to create the agenda, the PowerPoint, send out the memos, etc--so essentially nothing has been done on this project.
How do I use the GTD principles to organize myself to achieve this task?
Thank you in advance!
