I like lists... and I like to organize my lists... but, what I really *need* to do is get my work done! When I look at all my undated NA's (almost all of mine are undated), I know that some must be on my radar today, some could be, and some won't be.
As I finish a NA and go back to my list for the next NA, I find myself getting distracted with list "reorganizing" or reviewing or just plain playing around. I don't want to go through at mark those "on my radar" with due dates, because that causes a lot of shuffling around the next day with the ones that don't actually get done. I want to keep my list fresh without alot of adjusting each day.
My possible solution is to set up a flag (or flag-like field). Then, when I start each day, I go through my available contexts and flag each one that should be on my radar. Then, I can sort the list and feel no qualms about getting to work on whatever is next on the list... it feels much more productive.
I don't want to fall back into the trap of feeling like my list is outdated and that I might miss something important, so I think it's important to do a quick review each morning to set the flags for the day.
Question: Is there a way to automatically clear all of the flags assigned to my tasks? Or, is there a way to clear all of a user-defined field at once? I'm using Outlook 2002.
Thanks for any ideas or alternatives for creating a daily "target" list.
