Sounds like you are off to a good start. What caught my eye was that you're not keeping a separate projects list yet. I highly recommend getting in the habit of this- that way your @shop list will be Next Action steps only (which you can do) and not diluted with Projects (which can only be done by chunking them down into smaller Next Actions).Originally Posted by maccnl
The Project list is key to being able to review all the ongoing commitments you have to make sure nothing "goes stale". For example, sometimes I find a project on my list and realize I have completed a next action step, and now it's time to identify another next action step. Next actions can go on your calendar, your to-do list, it can even be a reminder email in an "Action" folder. It seems to take some practice to get really fast at knowing the difference between a next action and a project, but once you do it's a big relief to the brain.
Hope that helps!
