I am fairly new with GTD but Im very happy with it sofar. As I got started ( and a bit excited) I started to write down all these self-managing and self-developement projects. After a while a saw a pattern, som "projects" might be considered projects, whereas some should probably just be called "lists".
Sometimes these lists could be linked to projects perhaps. Things that came up was things like "find things to do to save time" ( such as practise guitar while watching tv, or listen to an audiobook while cleaning etc) or " my affirmations", " list of things that are holding me back", or "general marketing ideas". These "projects" just became list which I added more and more things to as I came up with new ideas and thoughts. then there where things that had a slight edge of being more of a project, like "developing my social competence", "learning gtd" and "eat healthy and create a greater variety of dishes". and then there where a few projects which I felt fell within some other "projects" like "learn storytelling", which could go under "develope social competence".
I feel like I need to do some restructuring of my GTD stuff. If I remove the things that just turned into "lists", how do I manage them? any advice? Some of them could fall under "project material" i guess. I want to make sure I read those lists on regular basis. A seperate binder for lists, or any other ideas?
When it comes to the bigger projects, like the one about "social competence", is that perhaps not a project at all, but a 1-2 year 40 000 feet goal? Should I try to be more specific with my projects. Where do I draw the line, what is a project and what is a goal...
thanks for any advice
