Getting Things Done (GTD) defines a "project" as anything that will take more than one action to be considered complete. "Next action" items, with a specific context, are kept handy so that when an appropriate context is present it can be done.
Many next-actions are tied to projects but I have problems trying to tie them together, and it becomes a problem across my projects. I have moved from a Palm PDA to an iPod Touch and in both cases, without using specific GTD software, find an issue in trying to link together the next-actions and the projects.
I am using Evernote to capture of all items and have to keep separate notes for each next-action item and then a large note for the overall project.
I have yet to find a way to tie things back to other items. Does anyone else who practices the GTD system have any insight into how I could address this without having to buy specific GTD software (which from what I've seen is always kind of a kludge anyway), and ideally inside of Evernote?
