A couple of questions I am sure many others have asked.
I am just starting, and have created my list of projects. (The first thing is that it strikes me is that I have a shockingly large number of projects!)
This might sound a little dense, but is the idea of GTD that you don't do anything that isn't written down as an action?
I (like most people) will plan to work on a project for a day, let's say (I am a music producer). In my head I know that the day will consist of many actions, and I know a lot of them ahead of time.
So if my project is: Record song for client X
The next action might be something like: Turn on equipment in the studio.
This in itself could be broken down to: Turn on the first piece of equipment.
Or even more basically: Show up at work
So is the next action for a project just sort of a starting point, or trigger for the whole series of actions that will be performed sequentially?
Another related question: Once I have generated a list of projects, is the idea that each project has a NA associated? Litteraly can I just write down the action right on the same list? Something Like:
Fix Car-call garage
Keep finances in order- Get copy of last months bank statement
Finish Album- make up bridge for song X
Sell House- research For Sale By Owner Process.
Oy, I think my confusion is obvious.
Thanks for reading,
