under pressure to be useful and thoughtful...
I've worked out of my home for the past... well... lots and lots of years... more than two decades... god, I sound old! And contexts were challenging. Sometimes they still are. I often forget that I can change them whenever I want. There are some great suggestions in this thread for alternate contexts if the common ones don't work for you.

I've said it before but my most helpful list is "Just Get It Done, Dena". It's a list of actions I just have to get off my butt about, things I'm procrastinating on. And it's motivating... and it's a context. And I can dump it whenever I like - preferably when things are back under control.
I like your idea about handling client to dos - especially if all of the work is done from one home office. Are there ever things you have do for multiple clients at once? For example, for me it's invoicing. I just can't seem to invoice as I go so each week or two weeks I invoice everybody at once... and I have a context list for that. Just a thought.
Does it matter that you don't separate by context? Only you can know. I think it's a big help for most people, but you have an unusual circumstance.
Keep us posted!
