I only write as many steps as occur to me in the moment. If I'm already in serious planning mode, then I might do more planning of steps. But sometimes a couple of sequential actions will occur to me while I'm doing something else. I'll send them both to the Inbox using QuickEntry. While emptying my inbox I'll group the actions into an action group to express their sequential dependency.

I tend to capture fairly fine grained actions for a couple of reasons. I often meet with students who just drop by my office. The fine grained actions serve to get me back on task later. Also, if I find that certain patterns of actions are generally useful, I might capture them for use as a template.
