where does outcome go? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes

DA stresses the importance of envisioning the desired outcome for all one's projects.

I have been putting my desired outcome in the notes associated with my projects. While the project names are short, I word the outcome as a complete, past-tense sentence expressing "what 'done' means." For example:

- ucla trip
-- n: I booked travel and lodging for a research trip to Los Angeles.

The notes field works so far for this, but feels a bit weird when I also start adding other notes (e.g. hotel reservation confirmation number). Particularly, there are circumstances where I would like to be able to print my projects list with the outcomes, but not with the other notes.

Reactions to the idea of having a dedicated "outcome" field attached to projects? Or having a view option that shows only the first sentence of the notes field? Or other solutions?
