So, I'm a bit unsure when I should stop an action. Here's an example of my predicament:
- My next action is "download manual for office phone". The project it is tied to is "Learn to properly operate office phone".
- I download the manual from the website.
- Instead of stopping there, I keep going and start reading up on how to properly warm transfer.
- I end up spending 2 hours reading through the manual and working on the phone.
So in the end, I got the phone working the way I wanted to but I just spent two hours on it. In my mind, I should have stopped at "download manual for office phone". At the same time, that seems too mechanical to me and I feel I should work the project to completion if it's front of me.
How do you all deal with this? Do you work a "small" project to completion like I do? Or do you only do that next, definable action and move on to something else.
