Instead you need to show the project lists, and the someday maybe lists. Those are where all the data on everything you are responsible for or may have to pick up soon is located.
I am self employed, and my lists of next actions are pretty short.In fact if they are not short I get numb to them an ignore them. But my project and especially my someday/maybe lists are huge. Someday maybe is where I now put active projects that have nothing due on them for a while as well as all the far fetched dreams.
