I've been trialling the Netcentrics outlook add-in for a week now. Previously I had the usual GTD @ categories, plus Projects. The Add-in converted everything in the projects list to a project and I was left with the task of linking my other actions to projects.
Something interesting happened along the way.
Many next actions had a legitimate project to link to. Others didn't - but the project handling in the tool is so nice it had me thinking. Those next actions without project did have one after all.
- "Call Nick and Mary" has been linked to the new project "Friendships maintained".
- "Read Listening Leaders" has been linked to the new project "Listening skills sharpened".
and so on. I'm finding that everything now has its place and the new project titles are suggesting a number of open loops I wasn't aware of.
