I've recently started with GTD.
I'm running it with a master excel spreadsheet with various worksheet tabs , inc. a someday/maybe , a reference reading, reference holiday ideas.
The main worksheet is marked 'all' & here I have my overview , split into sections:
A. one off tasks , sub-sectioned by context 'at desk', 'at phone', 'errands' etc
B. a waiting for section
C. (down at row 89) The projects section. Here is a list of projects (currently 14 of them). For each I have identified the desirable outcome (highlighted in green) & have written down the next action . Also in the cell next to that action have typed NA, the idea being to see the NA 'at a glance'.
Since I reorganised along the above lines , I have made good progress with
one off tasks , but less so with the projects, one important one of which hasn't move on in quite a while.
My confusion may be that for the project next actions, they are not placed in
contexts in the same way the one-off actions in section A are.
I could in section A introduce cross refs. to project tasks, but that seems to me to be complicating things / blurring the hard edges.
Or have I got it wrong , do I need 2 separate overview lists, one for projects
(but I would still have to organise projects NAs by context) ?
