  While searching for how people deal with this, I found this almost 3
year old wonderful post about strategies to approach your tasks:
http://www.murtworld.com/2005/04/revolving-workflow-strategies.php .

  And with latest sorting options "effort-up" and "effort-down", I
guess I have a sensible way to decide which next actions to pick up.
Thanks Carsten.  I am thinking it's even better than sorting on TODO

  Now if only I can sort tasks based on their creation dates as
well. ;-) Just kidding.
