A GTDer asked: Can I use project management software for my GTD lists?
Coach Wayne Pepper: From our perspective, project management tools are good for Project Support, not necessarily Next Action lists though. In other words, if I have a project that is so complex and intertwined that it needs to be broken down into several sub-projects–many of which are contingent upon one another–then that kind of tool is a really good tool for supporting that project by capturing all those moving parts and pieces, and identifying how they relate to one another. Those tools are not as good however, for capturing and contextually categorizing all the discrete, granular next actions which support all those moving parts and pieces. A simple list manager is often a better central hub for organizing ALL of your Next Action–related and not related to your projects.
