I also like docta have too many next actions. They number in the hundreds.
I typically think of something, then it goes on a next action list in a context. Usually, there are multiple things on my context lists that are related, in that they are part of the same project.
I am coming to believe that this is not a good idea. I.e., the problem is that I don't have a small number of next actions related to a project but a large number.
I'd like to start forcing myself to ask whether something should automatically go on a next action list just because it appears in my head, or first go to a projects (or other higher level list, like objectives or responsibilities) so I can focus like a laser on those few things. That way, I won't feel overwhelmed by looking at my next actions....
I'd like to get your input re: this idea.
