I know the title is pretty broad, but I really didn't know how to summarize it very well.
As everyone else, I have projects, NAs and contexts. From what I have learned in this forum, I only put the next action down associated with a project. The other NAs that I have thought of beforehand are stored in the notes section of the project in Outlook, so I don't get overwhelmed with all of them. This has been working well, until I realized that I had a slight dilemma.
Let's say I'm at Location 1 working on a NA for a project. This NA was on my @Errands list so I went to Location 1 to complete it and came back to my office. That's all fine and dandy until I open up another project or even the same project to see that I also could have completed a NA at that location, but it was hidden, thus making me make another trip.
Most of my NAs aren't actually "NEXT" actions. I guess you could probably call them "at the same time" actions because they really don't have a specific sequence. I usually just have a lot of different things to do at any particular location. However, if I list out all of these things, I tend to get numb to them and put them off because I see an overwhelming amount of things to do at one location, but if I just put 1 down and go do it, I don't know what the other actions where because I hid them from myself! You surely see my frustration.
Any help on this matter would greatly be appreciated!
