Choosing next action in light of everything else???
My question is similar to that of Prouddad's in the previous thread but either I amjust not getting something or my life is more complex.
While I can easily work from a context-based next action list when I am "stuck" in a context, for example, I am on an airplane, or waiting at the doctors or when I have collected a small number of actions that can only be done at a certain location and I need to be there because one priority action leads me there(we are having friends over, so I must go to the grocery store) but by many orders of magnitude the greatest number of next actions can only be completed either at home or at work. How do I choose my next action from these really large lists?
I have done the Weekly Review on Friday, but by Saturday morning, I am in a state of utter confusion choosing between @ home, @ errands, or @family.
I look at my lists and Ijust cannot tell from it what is the priority-
Which project do I most need to move forward on?
What action will open the way to the other ones that then become problems that have a time factor? Like, if I remove the lock to fix it will I need to go to the hardware store before it closes at 3:00?
What do I have to reserve my energy level/state of mind for?
Where am I on the project anyway?
Is it more important/valuable/suitable for me to be executing routine-type activities today? And, if not today, when would I do them anyway?
