PreviousIndexNext ...and another thing! - To do list

Yeah, could do that. Also, what you’re actually interested in at any one time is only the *next* action in a list, rather than every step of a process. So if you can break larger processes (‘Hire van’) down into separate lists of actions, then just put the next action from each one in your to do list and keep the rest separately. Then, when you’ve done an action, get the next action from that process and put it on your to do list.

That way you’ll have a small, manageable to do list of small simple actions. As long as it doesn’t encourage you to ignore the rest of it!

The next step is to draw vast Gantt charts of the entire project, appoint a team, etc, etc… I expect a full plan and costings on my desk first thing in the morning! :)
