Hi Rick,

I'm guessing you have a really good reason for organizing your project
using lists and check boxes instead of TODOs and headings, in which
case this email isn't really useful--but, in the extremely unlikely
event that you don't, I thought I'd note how this becomes a non-issue

* My main project outline
** TODO do something
** NEXT do this
  SCHEDULED: <2007-07-12 Thu>
** do something else

If you schedule individual tasks, instead of projects, then the agenda
will take you right to your next item. If you schedule projects, then
it's easy to see what is the next item to be done because it says
