  • Basic GTD question regarding Projects, NA & Contexts (using Outlook 2007)

    I work in government contracting - business development (sales). I am new to the forum, and have been trying to use GTD ideas for 1 year. I decided to put everything at work into GTD utilizing Outlook 2007. I removed all categories and replaced them with the recommended categories from the guide. I am all set to use Calendar, Mail, To Do and Contacts in GTD utilizing Outlook.

    I have created a category for every Project (each of my projects is a significant sales opportunity) for example: I have a Project named Defense - Army, IT. I really do not get what the next step is though. I have around 20 emails related to the project. I have completed a few tasks related to the project, and I have a few more in my head that I want to get into the system.
    Do I create new tasks under the Project or in the Context?
    If I create a new task in the Context, for example: @Office, how do I relate it back to the Project Defense- Army IT?
    Do you guys take every email that comes in and move it to a folder under the Inbox folder?
    What about Sent items?

    Thanks - gatordmike

    Is it really a Project?

    Is "Defense - Army, IT" actionable?

    What's the Successful Outcome?
