I use inline tasks. e.g.
*************** TODO look into this further, check with so-and-so
And to see all of the todos in the file I use this quite a lot, just
press F9 to see a list:
;; show all todos in the current buffer with one key press
(global-set-key (kbd "<f9>") (lambda ()
(org-agenda nil "t" 'file)))

To not export todos, have this at the top of you file and press C-c on
it before exporting:
