I'm sorry. It was impolite of me to not at least offer-up a solution idea in my post above.
I think the perspectives you may be looking for can be seen in methodologies used by many software development companies to manage their workflow; they really tie-in the big picture to today’s next actions in a very clear and visible way.
If you search software screenshots for agile, scrum, kanban, (scrumban!!), I think you might like what you see; the method is extremely visual... it is easy to see the flow of progress. Of course, the terminology for work phases, etc., is for the software industry, but you can re-label things. Especially check out targetprocess3 (trello too), the ability to build/see next-aspects of live projects into balanced work-batches that represent the next benefit-stage of your personal plan is really fantastic. I think GTD principles and methods dovetail right in... bringing it all together in a powerful way!!
I Hope that helps a little, I am no expert. Good Luck!
