We are discussing the same thread in the closed Connect forum but I wanted to hear any ideas of not-connected GTDers.
My thread about time maps pushed me to open a new thread based on David's answer to my question. As far as I understood he suggested not to use time maps and stick to Project+Next Action concept in any case. But in this case priority question appears. For example, you come home and have two Next Actions on your @Home list: Play with a child (Child Focus Area) and Learn Spanish (Personal Development Focus Area). What you choose? Of course the most important and that's the first. The next day - the same situation and it will always be the same because Child Focus Area is more important then Personal Development Focus Area, and more more important then any other (House or what ever). So we have "the most important neverending Next Action" that forces out other Next Actions that're on your list. But in any case Personal Development is rather important for the future. So how do you come to Learn Spanish (or develop less important focus areas)if you have your child related Next Actions on the list always (keep in mind that I can't learn Spanish while the child awake and when she goes to sleep I go with her)?
