I don't think there is one technique that works for everybody all the time. The key is to make your lists viable again. An honest weekly review is a key practice. But just cleaning up your lists helps. Delete stuff that is no longer relevant, move other stuff to someday/maybe, et cetera. You can always do a mindsweep and then compare your results to your list. Sometimes the best course is just to do one thing that you are willing to do, and see what happens.
