Make it Easy to be Mobile
This is what struck me. If you don't have a system that invites you to play with it and carry it everywhere you won't use it and contexts won't make sense. You have to enjoy your implementation enough to carry it all the time. Ubiquitous is not just for capture but also access to your lists.

If you are using an electronic system what is the mobile way to carry your lists? Does an iPhone or iPod Touch look cool, blackberry, Treo, netbook, what will you always carry with you and use regularly?
Once you have a system that is always with you you can consider how to adapt it for your personal contexts.
My contexts are not like anyone else's and my contexts change with the seasons. Right now I get by with 2 outside contexts, outside with help and outside by myself. In spring and summer I will make contexts by fields or barns. I will have a context of Red Barn for all the stuff I have to do there and another perhaps for the main orchard or lower pear orchard field. And I may set up a temporary context that I only use for a short while before deleting it.
