Hello everyone I'm a web designer that has just started using GTD. I've just got done setting up my systems and it is a hybrid of computer based tools and off computer tools. I'm using Tracks written in Rails to work Context, Next Actions & Projects. I've read the book close to two times and plan on reading it a few more times as I seem to miss some of the fine details.
My question has to do with project lists and Next Action and Contexts. Right now I have @Computer, @Calls, @Home, @Waiting for, @Someday/Maybe (hidden) as my context lists. Under each of these in Tracks there are next actions - can see a sample here - http://www.3thingstoday.com/wp-content/300pxTracks1.jpg - I can set a due date on these actions if need be.
One thing that I am confused on is how to prioritize the next actions or if I even should. Do you just look at the list in the morning and knock them out as you go? I did that yesterday and got alot done. What if you miss something that is due today - does that go on your calendar? I use ical, but have just been using for appointments and calls to be made at a certain time.
Also, do you look at your project list once a day to see if you need to add any next actions? Should you ever add more than one next action, or only add it when the first one is done?
Thanks for any help.
