GTD: I get stress from Actions that aren’t Actions, but should be projects (or several Actions)

This is  just a very short Blog Post but I thought it was important enough to post.

Since a few days I have a feeling of anxiety and stress. Even though I am following the rules of GTD and am doing weekly reviews. At least, I thought I was doing GTD. But then I took a small break to have a view from a distance and thought at what causes my fear. After a few minutes I think I found the reason. At least, I think that now, but we’ll see in a few days or weeks.

I had Actions that actually should be Projects, or should be split into several Actions. So now I am converting these actions to Projects or I make smaller chunks so i don’t have an action that can take 8 hours. This looks banal, but if you ask me, that’s what GTD is all about. Little banal tricks to make you more productive and Get Things Done.
These little thing make big things happen for me.
