Actions I Need Others to Complete Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes

So I've been trying to GTD for a year and a half (sheesh!), and the work flow is in a constant state of flux. New Year, New Flow, blah blah blah. Anyway, I'm a bit confused as to what to do in the following situation.

I'm working on a project, but I can't move forward until someone else gives me something. They've promised it by a certain time, at which point I can move on. What is the most useful way to fit this into OF. Is the action "get item from person"? Is it "E-mail person to remind them to get me something"? What would the context be? Is it not even an action because I'm not the one doing it. Even if that's true, it's important that I remember to get it, right?

I guess, what have you all found is the best way in OF to keep yourself reminded of such things. Thanks so much.
