I have read the book, I looked through the forum, and I digged through the webside. I fully agree that Gtd is the way to overcome a lot of my daily problems in work and privat life. So far so good.
Now, as a citizen of the company I am working for, Outlook is the tool to use on a daily base in terms of organizing and planning. Now, I have downloaded the documentation, explaining how to setup Outlook, so it will support the Gtd methodology best, if someone is not going to buy the software addition for Outlook anyway. After setting everything up like explained, I felt rather excited and energized, ready to go.
I worked through my collected stuff as discribed in the book and filled the different list with my action items. Fantastic experience! In the next week I started to work out action items from my lists. On Friday I started to do my review and ... I got lost.
I crossed off everything I had finished but I got lost in that respect that I had no visibility about which project now misses a next step item. I was looking at a list of about 70 projects and I could not figure out which one still has an unfished actiom item sitting in some of the action items list and which one is waiting for a new action item to be asigned. To be honest with you that throwed me off the waggon.
It might turn out that I am a stupid idiot not seeing the obvious in this process but I would like to ask you forum members to let me know how you are handing this issue. I am very interessted in solving this issue.
Thanks for your feedback on this issue.
