I use an iPhone app Pocket Informant which is a list manager and also a calendar in one. I can view tasks by context, but also there is a "Today" view which shows all meetings and tasks due to day or overdue in the same view. So if I really want to make sure I have a couple of things to do today to get the day off to a good start, it's really easy to add a due date to those tasks and see them on my today view. But I really try hard to keep it to only two or three, and after those are done I'll work off my context lists.

I also add this to my Outlook calendar so if others are looking for me they can check and see where I am.
