No. In my implemenation there is no real distinction. I have a list of projects, project notes, and next action list. I also have have a set of goals that are more long range, 30k-50k feet planning.Originally Posted by wordsofwonder
Let's say I just received a large project in my inbox. I would record it on my projects list, and create a projects note page. In the notes I would list out everything that I know needs to be done. If there were two subprojects but you had to do A first and B second, it would just appear in outlined form in my notes. If the two subprojects were to be done at the same time I would probable list them on my projects list (Or I might not because I'm being lazy). Then of course add the next actions to the apporpriate list.
My system has been in flux lately. I have tried to use Outlook since I am force to use it for email at work, but I find it too akward. I am currently using a bizzarre combination of TiddlyWiki and D*I*Y Planner which is working well for having my goals, projects and next action in one central program and printing out the list I need to carry in my planner for when I am away from the office.
