GTD Newb here.
I'm totally stuck on how to keep the Next Actions list coordinated with the projects. 95% of what I'm doing is project-related. Do I have a next Actions list in each project folder which I then process alongside a general "next actions" list (or are there multiple lists)? I read the book over and over again, I think I have it and then I cannot get concrete with my actual workflow. It's driving me mad.
I travel a lot too and I cannot figure out how everyone drags around all their project folders. It also really puts a pinch on the next actions "media" I can use. I find it totally clumsy to try and be on the computer all the time to put in my next actions (in the GTD Outlook Add-in from NetCentrics for example)-- it's really clunky to try and add a next action which is not an email via that add-in. Am I missing something stupid simple there?
Back to the Next Actions list... I see all the debates over moleskin vs. ring binder vs. clipboard. I really like the moleskin approach only because of its portability (I'm using cheaper Composition notebooks until I can things down) but I have a hell of a time keeping all the lists straight due to the pages filling up and then needing to add pages in places were I cannot add pages (Comp notebooks are the small bound). I'm also going a little bit crazy trying to get it straight on where to record next actions (see my first paragraph).
I think I'm overthinking all this but I just need to get jump started somehow *how* to get the system rolling.
Thanks for suggestions.
