Remembering the small tasks too

I’ve been a proponent of the Getting Things Done methodology for many years and I use OmniFocus as my implementation tool. Each day it presents me with 2-3 focus projects and a list of recurring tasks for that day.

It works well, except I’m conscious there are a lot of small tasks that I am missing. Not missed in the sense that I forget to do something, but missed in the sense of not taking small actions to move projects forward.

With the large tasks there is often a component that takes several hours of work. I’m wondering today if I should cut that back by an hour — these tasks often not that time dependent that I can’t — and focus on smashing out a number of the small tasks instead.
