Break tasks up

I have a number of projects on the go at the moment (probably too many) and my big challenge at the moment is doing all of the things I need to do. I have been sniffing around the Getting Things Done methodology for a little while now and one of the tips I gleaned from somewhere is to break tasks down into smaller tasks so if you have a task on your to do list to send a proposal to a prospective client, for example, try breaking it down into its constituent parts instead. So the one part will be to write the proposal and another part will be to actually email the proposal. I have found that breaking tasks into more manageable chunks removes some of the blocks in my own mind to completing a complex task and makes it easier to work my way through each part as I work towards completing the whole.
