I apologize if this has been covered. I did a lot of searching and looking for answers before posting, but have not been specifically able to find what I am looking for. So, I am posting here.
I have been using a GTD system for quite awhile through different means. I am very happy with my current system, but I came across OF and am giving it a trial run.
One thing I am struggling with is that a “project” in OF is simply a list of tasks. In David Allen’s GTD book, he lists 5 steps of a project. 1) Purpose/Principles 2) Vision Outcome 3) Brainstorming 4) Organizing 5 ) Next Actions
Granted, a simple project like “Change Jeep Oil” might require a lot of outcome visioning or brainstorming, but some things do. Some things take quite a bit of brainstorming, notes, and capturing of other materials.
It seems to me that OF jumps straight to Step 4. In my current system that I use, I capture all the stuff from 1, 2 and 3, and then start organizing, and everything is contained together as a “Project.” All notes, thoughts, etc.
I am curious how others either use OF to capture that stuff, or another program to link the things together, or if you have some totally different?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
