Decide on the very next action to take on the active projects.
Try a paper implementation first and create your basic lists by writing those next actions onto separate sheets of paper for each context.
Get and read the book Getting Things Done
Work the system for at least a month making sure you really truly have the next action for every active project and that you do at least 2 weekly reviews in that time but ideally one each and every week.
Re-evaluate whether you are feeling better about your list of things to do.
Repeat the mind dump and tweak as necessary but don't get bogged down in implementation until you understand the process. GTD is not based on any specific software or hardware but is a dramatically different way of thinking about your universe of stuff you want to complete. It takes a lot of time to grok the change and see if it will work for you.
