If you find yourself getting overwhelmed with a long list of tasks, or simply are looking for some quick things to get done, wheretheskygrows' tip is one you should check out:

Bob's looking for quick tasks

Having so many things to do, sometimes it's so easy to get overwhelmed even when you're organized with RTM! Even if those things take only a few minutes to do, they feel like mountains.

So, I find that if I can just do one or two things, then I will feel like I accomplished something. Even better, I could get the energy to do even more on my list.

I created a smartlist called "Today's Quickies" which are any tasks that are due today and take less than 5 minutes to do. I used these parameters:

dueWithin:"1 day of today" and timeEstimate:"< 5 min"

It's a great way to see all those little things that you can do and be done with!
