Many of my active projects have 5 to 12 independant actions. I want to be able to see a good number of them (all if possible) when I am in the context in which they can be done so I can choose the task to complete based on time available, energy, etc. I want to see these while I am in very specific contexts such as when I am in a certain neighborhood or a certain room in my house or part of the builiding in which I work. I am using plain vanilla Palm (handheld and desktop versions) but could use paper as well. Palm limits to 15 categories in either Tasks or Memo. I presently use Memo for my project definitions and my @contexts lists because it will sort A to Z and it is easier for me to see if I have already entered the item. The solution I see is to put the actions into the context categories with a short heading so they come up together. For example, in @home I can begin all the kitchen actions with kitchen and thereby see them together, and within @out I can begin the actions I need to do with a word to designate a more specific location such as Brooklyn, Midtown, etc. But, I fear that I am gravitating towards an heirarchy and that I am starting to make too many subcategories. Also, the handheld can display on the date view items from Task and you can ceck them off. This is very handy. I would appreciate any thoughts and examples of what other people do.
