But when I have a handful of random tasks available to me, it doesn't really matter what order I do them. I just go ahead and do them. I can use my intuition, mood, energy level, or time available to determine at the moment of choice which task I want to do. So, for this instance, task order becomes irrelevant.

For time blocking, I just block out anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour for "available next actions". Then I just go start knocking off tasks. I don't worry too much about scheduling my tasks in forecast view.

Based on my free time, I immediately look at my Due perspective and try to work on those tasks first. After I complete as many of my due tasks, I'll look at my flagged tasks and work on my Big Rocks tasks that I intentionally flagged as important.

After I get through as many of my flagged tasks, I'll get around to my Next Actions available context perspective to look at any number of available tasks.

So the most important tasks and the perspective to view are in order:

1. Due and Due soon
2. Flagged
3. Next Actions available
4. Other (blocked because of start date, or a prior task has not been completed yet).
