I'm a relative newbie, having only adopted GTD in the last two weeks. It's been quite an exciting and hectic journey. I have a question about everyone's "favorite" topic (projects). It was only after much googling elsewhere and searching through this site that I finally realized I needed to post here, so your patience is requested.
After being stumped for a while, I think I finally hit the nail on the head with regards to projects. Today, I received an assignment to head the team that is rebuilding the help pages for my employer's Web site. I stayed focused on outcomes, tracked everything I delegated as WF's, devised a few NA's and put them in my Outlook Task list, etc.
But how do others track projects if the main part of your job is deadline-driven? At the beginning of each month, I receive a spreadsheet that lists about 10-15 deliverables. For each deliverable, there are specific milestones and deadlines that must be met (10/1 Initial Review, 10/5 Content Review, 10/9 Final Approval, etc.). How does one go about tracking this? I work with many others, and of course, it's a multi-step project (one thing cannot happen without another happening).
Any advice would be more than welcome and appreciated. Thanks! This is a fantastic community and I'm grateful to be a part of it.
