Urgent for me is usually an Emergency
My urgent on the fly items need to go immediately from input to decision to doing with no stopping so they never make it to a list of next actions. Most are emergencies that happen in the course of doing something on my next action lists.

Part way through sawing the horn off we hit a blood vessel, now it's an immediate emergency to finish sawing the horn quickly to cauterize the horn core, and grab some paper towels and duct tape to apply a pressure bandage. Ram is fine BTW. My "inbox" went from input to emergency to solution in the space of about 15 minutes.
