When priorities change, most often it's a high-priority item being added. This could either be something new, or something already in my system that has had its priority suddenly increased. Either way, I usually take a blank piece of paper, write down an action or project, and put it on the top of my "zero-folder" or on my desk, where I'll see it first. I also have two more inboxes, beside my "zero-folder" (which acts as my inbox), which are almost always empty and which are of higher priority than my "zero-folder" (one higher than the other). I might put the paper in there, or put more than one paper with actions having to do with the new, urgent thing there.

For some things that need to be done in a short time I use specific reminders such as moving my watch to the other wrist, holding an object in my hand, etc.
If a project has its priority lowered, then when I run across actions for that project I simply move them to a lower-priority folder. I feel no need to find them and move them before I run across them during the normal use of my system.
Inability is an abstract thing involving comparison with alternate universes; it cannot be experienced.
