What does GTD suggest in the following scenario:
I am processing my inbox and I come across an item that is obviously a project. I want to do all the thinking about all the loose ends on the project and I identify six next action items: A, B, C, D, E, F. The problem is that I can't do C, D, E, or F until I have done B and I can't do B until I have done A.
The dilemma is should I go ahead and put all six next action reminders on my context lists or should I only put A.
If I put all six then I have to do extra thinking every time I see B, C, D, E or F like, "I can't do those until I finish A." It seems like I lose that elegant "cranking widgets" idea if I put all six down.
Suppose I only put down A and then completed A sometime during the week. I won't get around to putting B on a context list until my next weekly review when I review project notes and realize that I can do B now that I have done A. If I only put B on a list and then completed B sometime during the week I will have to wait till the following week's review to put down C, D, E, and F. This way my context lists stay nice, but the project takes a lot more time than it should have taken.
I have been reading the book and I don't see the answer to this problem. Is it addressed or not?
My psyche is not relaxed.
