i just started with GTD a while ago and since i have some experience with all the time management techniques i have a few "understanding problems" which lead to some kind of uncertainty in practiseing the method regulary.
I know the difference between "Area of focus" and "projects" and if i understand Davidīs philosophy right, everythin that needs to have more then one step in doing is a project. So from my understanding a projects list, is a list where al the activities (next steps) of a project are collected. Kind of a brainstorming. But when i go through my projects lists i always end up with specify the single steps as good as possible, so that my projects lists end up to be a specific list of next steps in which each step leads to the next one till the end.
My problem now is: Why do i have to copy these steps again from the project list to the main "next step"-list, specially if i use a tool like Omnifocus?
And when ever i try to see the project lists as kind of a brain dump for all actions related with the projects and try to just dump the steps in and not sort it i feel kind of "incomplete". So i get stucked here.
Well Kelly I hope i could explain my "problem" a bit better here with more then 140 characters.
Looking forward for any help and clearance or advice.
Thanks in advance
