The entire GTD system breaks down for me because there is no efficient way to manage one's Project List.
Ideally, a Project List would show, in outline form, a list of one's projects by title (preferably grouped by some context) with all of the actions associated with the project shown beneath it. Why is there not an easy and efficient way to do this with Outlook?
I've attempted the Krantz method, and while it's an attempt at a creative solution, it is simply to cumbersome - e.g. having to open every project to see the next actions, having to cut and paste and format, etc. I want to be able to drag an action from my project list to my next action list. Is this asking too much?! From what I can tell it is.
Please don't tell me about Shadowplan, the PigPog method, the Krantz Method, Actionlist or Goldmine. I've looked into them all and they are all too complicated. What I'm looking for is quite simple:
A program that will enable me to create a project list in outline form (as described above) and that will let me drag actions listed below the projects into my next actions list.
If there is not one readily available, I would like to commission one (I'm not kidding). This is an issue that is truly driving my nuts. The GTD system is no good without an easy to review project list. So, if anyone knows of something that fits my description, please let me know.
