My use of GTD doesn't include contexts, as I'm typically either on my laptop or desktop.

My ideal morning routine: upon waking, recite my primary motivations (phrased as suggested by The Sedona Method) and a few quotes that reinforce them; upon logging in, access my GTD system (in Emacs) and mark three bigger items that will move their respective projects closer to completion with a priority of A; begin tackling Next Actions.
When I follow that routine, I do pretty well; I feel like I have made good progress at the end of the day.
I sometimes also mark items in my agenda with a B or C if I want to get them done that day, then I consider my available time and energy to help choose what to do next. Sometimes I choose a priority task and sometimes I don't.
I'm going to start using the Don't Break the Chain method to help me stay on track in the morning. Thank you for suggesting it!
