I also use remaining in my review perspective.
I only use the review perspective only once per week during my weekly review. I like to plan out the whole week and either set start dates or flag a task/project.
During the daily review, I only look at my Available context and flag available tasks/project that I want to focus on for Today.
I have a separate "Today" perspective set as follows:
Context Filter: Active
Availability Filter: Available
Status Filter: Due or flagged
Estimated Time Filter: Any Duration
I refer to this Today perspective and try to work on any tasks that are present in the Today perspective.
If I am finished with tasks on the Today perspective, I start looking at my Available tasks perspective for any other things I can do. This allows me to focus only on the flagged projects/tasks and any due tasks (tasks that are due within the next few days).
At the end of the day, I like to go back to the Available perspective and look for more projects/tasks to flag for tomorrow.
I use the default review setting only once per week during my Weekly Review. I never look at this perspective during the daily review.
