Things that clarify direction for me are hierarchy and sequence.
So, I now have a hierarchy of purpose, vision, goals, areas of focus, and projects. In Outlook Tasks, I keep them all unexpanded, so they only take up an inch of screen. But they are there if I need to remind myself where anything fits.
I just expanded the above to my context lists. They used to be in alphabetical order, which was not logical. So, I imposed an order on them by prefacing them with numbers.
Now, they are @1calls, @2computer, @3errands, @4home, @5waitingFor
So, calls and computer are always in front of me, errands are typically on my way out the door, so I scroll down a tad for them, home is later, so that is out of sight towards the bottom of the screen, and waitingfor is intermittant, when I have a moment to breathe, so that is also at the bottom.
I still have other contexts that I have not ordered yet -- somedaymaybe, read, listen, etc -- but, because they are not numbered, they are WAY down at the bottom -- I can find them if I want them, but they are not put in my face by default.
