Yeah, I think I'm moving more and more to the pigpog method as time goes by. There are two main differences in what I'm doing.
1) I still have a projects list, even though it's redundant, since the project name is the client name. It still helps. Some cases are moving toward settlement, some toward trial, some either or. So I can look at just the projects list (filter by category in Tasks) and see:
Applebaum, Adam - Trial
Baxter, Barry - Settlement
Cosi, Casey - Trial (possible low settlement)
Etc. It also serves as a safety list in case I check off a next action (force of habit) rather than edit it. Pig Pog deals with that risk by keeping checked actions visible and doing a weekly purge, but that's too messy for me. I can't stand seeing all those crossed off tasks.
2) Rather than hide the next Next Action in notes, I stick it in parens right along with the Next Action. This can help keep your momentum going when there are two logical tasks that should be done together. Obviously, if there are more, PigPog makes more sense.
In general, the more important a case or deadline is, the more reduntantly it gets entered on my Palm (Tasks as Next Action and Deadline and Project, Calendar as deadline). As a lawyer, I simply can't afford to make a mistake on certain things.
