Thank you very much, Luke, that was very helpful. I'm going to refer back to this post again and again while processing my in-box - thanks!
I split my somedays by Areas of Focus and it gives me a real sense if clarity (I have over 200 on it so far) you can skim through it a lot faster than just having one big list which is great for the weekly review. I've found I completed a number of items on there just by 'accident' as well!
Foxman--did you mean 200 items on Someday/Maybe? Or 200 Areas of Focus?
My Someday/Maybe list contains several thousand items. Some items are larger (e.g. build Dream House) and others are tiny details (e.g., replace light switch cover in den).
As a result, I have never reviewed the entire list(s) from start to finish. I found that breaking the list down by the action verb made it easier to review. (I also like the idea of SDMB: review weekly, etc.)
SDMB: Visit (people or places)
... though I also have specialized lists (SDMB: Movies to watch with...), only because they were created ad hoc that way.
