[31 Day #15] Planner Walk Through: Projects Divider

So, with GTD (Getting Things Done), I've learned that a project is considered to be any event or item that takes more than one task to complete it.

Cleaning Out The Basement:  Project
Throw away broken vacuum cleaner in basement:  Task

As I do my daily and weekly reviews, I am often triggered to write down tasks that need doing.  Cleaning the basement is something that keeps rearing its ugly head!  I know that it is not going to get finished in a day, so I decided to make it a project.  The first thing I did was to write that down in my projects index so that I always have a short list of the projects I am working on.  I may actually do a projects page in the near future with detailed lists and instructions, but for now I just added a next action to my projects to do list.  I'm not ready to jump in to basement cleaning with both feet, but to get started I am having both of my teen boys to go downstairs with a trash bag and get them to try and fill it up with their stuff that they longer need or want.  If there's anything worth saving, maybe they'll have a give away bag to go along with their throw away bag.

Weekly & monthly reviews are key to always having things, such as projects, consistently before you.
