Question about how to flag top priority Next Actions.
I've been placing all my NAs into context-based lists, such as
@ Calls - Work
@ Calls - Personal
But what if there's a top priority that trumps all the contexts? For instance, what if I have a specific Next Action within the @Computer category like "Complete Penske spreadsheet" and that is my absolute top priority. Despite being near a phone, or in the office, or any other context, my top priority is that Penske file, no matter what. How is that captured in the system?
Moreover, what if there are, for instance, 5 top priorities that I have to complete as soon as possible, over a couple of days, ahead of everything else, regardless of their contexts? For instance, those 5 actions could include a phone call, finishing a spreadsheet, painting the porch, writing a letter, and submitting timesheets at work. They're all in different contexts -- one's @Call, another's @Office, another's @Home, and another's @Computer.
How do people gather top priority NAs when they're in different contexts? I'm trying to avoid, for instance, making all my @Calls because I'm near a phone, and then realizing that I had an item in the @Computer that was much more important than any phone call.
