    How to handle dependent tasks in GTD. For example:

    Task 1 (Check if product 1 or product 2 is the right one)
    Task 2A (Buy product 1)
    Task 2B (Buy product 2)

    Other example

    Task 1. RND buy a X car.
    Task 2. Go to car dealer and buy X car

    I know that task 2 (in the car example) depends on Task 1. How to handle it? When I start actioning my tasks task 2 pops up.

    What the best practices in GTD.

    Hasan, are you using a software program to manage your GTD system?

    As a best practice, only the very next things that can be done should go on your next actions lists (or if time sensitive, your calendar). Any dependent tasks you have outlined should be stored as supporting project materials until they are needed. Review this outline during your weekly review or whenever the way ahead on the project is unclear.

    Hope this helps!

    Yes. I am using a program to manage my GTD system. Should I mention the name here?
