Context "@Calls" vs "@person"
David recommends in his book to set up a context @calls. This allows us to get a list of all phone calls to take very quickly. Great so far.
I set up different contexts for important persons I deal with regularely. If I have to talk to such a person I set up an action like "Discuss the meeting agenda with Mrs. Winter" and assign it to the appropriate project. The context then will be "Mrs. Winter". When by chance, Mrs. Winter calls me, I open very quickly the context "@Mrs. Winter" and can clear all those open things with her I have to. I do not have to phone her again. I find that very effective. On the other hand I can't get a list of all my phone calls cause each task has only one context.
Do you have any idea how to take advantage of both approaches? How do you work and what experiences did you make?
