Currently, I put all next-actions into a single Word file, prefixed with context and project info, so when I sort them, 'aa' (office) is at the top. Even sorted, it is kinda messy, and I am tempted to distribute next action items across multiple context lists: at phone, at computer, at home, at anywhere, etc. I like the idea because I can pull up a nice neat list of things that can be done at work or at home, and things like "at phone" or "at anywhere" can be saved and postponed until more appropriate times, like when I am waiting at the train station
My concern: there may be important work and home things on these 'at phone' or 'at anywhere' lists. And there may be weeks between waits at the train station and similar situations. In order not to overlook items on these lists, I really need to juggle multiple lists. For example, when I am at work, I may need to refer to the 'at work', 'at phone', 'at anywhere', and 'at waiting_for' lists. Is this really easier than a single sorted list? How do you manage?
