I'd like to shape my system for this. May I ask for your advice here?
For a while, I have considered active projects only as those I would work on (with defined NAs) in the following week (weekly review). However, I think it's better for me to extend it as something I need to get done, and thus are constantly in my mind (I want to unload them). They are not "someday/maybe", as they must get done before a due day; they are not "ticklers" as I can and I should start working on them from now, as soon as I can or have the information to.
Now I put them as active, I don't yet have a specific NA for them. They may be something due 3 months later; I should start thinking about it; but I cannot do so as there are preliminary skills/knowledge/technique I need before making any productive progress.
Now, can I leave this 'no decided-NA yet' project on my Active Project list as a bookmark to remind myself every week in the review?(so I can assess again if I am at a position to start doing something. Those learning/information seeking/research work are listed as separated projects). Or should I force myself to place a NA in the list (like 'assess the possibility of doing xxx', so I'm reminded nearly every time I do an operational review?).
Personally I prefer the first approach. What do you think?
Thanks a lot!
