I still use contexts lists because one big list would repel me. I like having them broken down into manageable chunks, but that's my preference. If each list had only, say, 5-10 items on it I'd just go back to one big list.

If that happens, I just re-evaluate the next day with a new list. But so many of my clients have things coming at them so fast you'd think the building was on fire. I think it depends a lot on each individual circumstance. The average knowledge worker, working in a company and not self-employed, has way more to do these days than they can possibly get done. And being able to quickly pivot is very highly valued in a lot of workplaces. So I think it just varies with the circumstances.
