I've been experimenting with giving all my active projects soft due dates.

During my weekly review, I set the group projects by filter to Due.

This will group the projects I am looking at into due date clumps.

I've created three folders in my home folder:
Maintenance (projects and actions to keep the system running)
Single Actions (full of projects with the same name as their default contexts)
Projects (Active projects I'm working on).

I only make projects due that are in the projects folders. The above folder structure allows me to select the projects folder, group by due date, and make sure all my projects have a due date.

I'm still tinkering with it. So far, I've found projects with due dates tend to get done. The problem for me is learning how to space the projects out enough so that I don't get clobbered with due items. :-) But if I do, I can always change the projects due date.

The other problem I'm working through is how to make items that really need to get done now stand out.
