If an Active Project is at a stage in which there are several or many independent (non-sequential) actions, where, when, how do you list all of these so you can readily see them? I would like to be able to easily refer to a list of these (and their related specifications) when I am in various contexts where I am unlikely to have project support materials with me. Using plain Palm, where would you put this information? I am thinking that maybe at time of weekly review, I might make a brief list of actions and just put them in @lists under the project name.
Another version of the same question is that given that the general GTD idea is to have on an n/a list only a true n/a, how do you cue yourself to do things that would be really helpful to do when you are in a certain context or at a certain time even although they are not n/a? For example, your n/a for a certain project involves picking up a book from a book store. Another project will also require securing a book but you are many actions away from this. In addition, a third project will require buying a CD as a gift that could be purchased at the book store, but you are not up to that as a n/a yet either. Do you visually scan project outlines for this type of thing at weekly review and list these somehwere? I am thinking that maybe I should put these in appropriate context lists but give them a lower level priority than true n/as. Again, I am talking about using plan vanilla Palm for this.
How might this be handled with paper?
If the above is mentioned somewhere, please direct me.
