This may seem like a very basic question and could not find it in the forum, but I would love to get anyone's thoughts on this. I've read GTD and am making may way through Ready for Anything. I believe that I understand the concept of the weekly review to look over all open loops, reviewing the projects and making sure that I have the next actions on the appropriate list to knock out. However, I'm unsure of how best to interact with the project entry at the time of eliminating the NA off of the action list.
For example, let's say that I have a project that will require 10 action steps, and each one of those actions can only be done one at a time, two a day until the project is completed. If I cross out the NA off of the action list, do I then go back to the project and list the next action on NA list? From GTD, I didn't get a clear idea of how the action list and projects relate back to one another besides the weekly review, and the weekly review would not be often enough to update the NA list. I have read of some creating project codes that would link the particular NA to the project list, but what other ways do you all use to link the two together?
Also, let's say that with the said project of 10 action steps, I can already plan out five of them. Since they have to be done consecutively, I'm only putting the next action on the action list, but should I also type out the following actions as a cluster of sub points on the projects list?
Thanks for your thoughts. Happy New Year everyone.
