next action dead-lines
Hello everybody, this is my first post here and I hope I'll find a great community on this forum!
My question: I have lots of next-actions on my next action list, most of them which come from current active projects, others are just single one-step actions.
I don't understand how I'm supposed to remind myself that some actions on my action-list are more urgent than others. (eg. Writing an important review for my boss that has a DEADLINE in two weeks seems more important to be doing today if I have the time and resources than let's say renting a certain movie on DVD - which is an action that I want to do but does not have a deadline at all). I don't want to end up getting busy doing less critical actions on my next-action list and "forget" about actions that are critical for completion of projets with deadlines (because these actions might be *burried* in lots of "noise" actions currently on my list).
Is this an exageration? Or how do you guys handle actions/projects that have specific deadlines? Maybe you put the project deadlines in your calendar, or write the deadlines of projects next to the projec's name on the "projects list". And how do you review them?
Thank you in advance for answering and helping!
