    Can we do sorting by due date as a default in the list next action? It is uncomfortable to push the button every time

    Are you asking about the behavior of some particular 3rd-party app used for next action lists? Sorting defaults are app-specific.

    In GTD there is no guideline how you should sort your lists. I use random FIFO order and Mark Foster's Simple Scanning (as advised by @Gardener) for selecting Next Actions.

    @TesTeq can you point me towards a resource re Mark Foster / Simple Scanning? My Forum search turned negative (?)... Thank you!

    Not GTD? Blasphemy just days after the Summit! ;):p:rolleyes::)

    Joking aside: Thank you. I think there needs to be a hyphen added into the link as follows:
