Need your help! This has probably been beaten to death, but my quick search didn't find the posts that did the beating; so...
I can't help feeling there's a smarter way to review my project and action lists. Right now, this takes what I think is a ridiculously long time. Maybe the answer is changing my perspective. I have a reasonably complex project (in the formal sense) job; my project list is fairly long, and I've tended to put all my possible next actions on lists, so they're pretty long, too. Maybe I just need to accept it will take longer?
Then again, maybe it's constraints I find in my work/life. First, I often am not in an environment where I can print, so I'm forced to shuffle back and forth between lists. Second, I'm also out of my office sufficiently that carrying *all* my project support material is not viable, and that kinda knocks out skimming through physical project plans I keep in folders. (I use Shadow for those.) Third, b/c I am in a project intensive environment, I do need detailed plans for many of my projects (thus the frustration w/ being away from the office).
So, my review takes the form of: "OK, project Alpha (and I regularly exceed 100 projects in the GTD sense). Do I have a next action in play already? I'll check @work, but it could be @call, @computer, or..."
I've gotta believe there's a better way; but...
