I'd like to gather some ideas about how people track project action items that aren't "next actions" because else has to happen first. I'm speaking here of projects that are more complex than buying tires but less complex than buying a company.
1) Do you tend to plan out your projects as completely as possible at the front end?
2) Do you keep your not-nexts on your next actions list so that they're there when all the pieces are in place? Or do you keep them in a different place (like with project notes) and move them over in your weekly reviews?
3) For those of you using Outlook, do you put not-nexts on your action lists but somehow mark them as not ready to go?
I seem to be a bit stuck on this, and would like some ideas.
