QUESTION

How does Getting Things Done (GTD) recommend handling task dependencies (one task that can't be started until another task is completed)? I understand how it works when they are part of the same project, but what about unrelated tasks in different projects (or on their own) where one can't be completed before the other?

ANSWER

It doesn't recommend handling task dependencies, because if done properly it shouldn't be a problem.

Why is that? Because a task that is dependent on an unfinished task shouldn't be in your Next Actions.
