+michelle pitman - Thanks so much for the wonderful thoughts on this one! Here's what I think:
1) If you have over 60+ items in your Next folder, ask yourself - are these really next?
2) Are these single tasks or projects?
3) Are there timelines at all for when you want to accomplish any of these tasks?
4) Are there 3, 4 or 5 of these that you absolutely want to get done this quarter?
5) If you said yes to #4, take a big, deep breathe! This is good. Focus in on these single tasks and projects. Break your projects down into specific tasks. Focus in on what must absolutely get done in order for you successfully complete each one!
6) For the remainder of the items, why not move them to the Someday/Maybe list? This way, during your weekly reviews, you can decide you might want to pluck one out of there and move it to the Next list as you may have accomplished one of your other Next action items. Doing this allows for a fluid process of only focusing in on what absolutely needs to go into the Next bucket, which can then be appropriately moved to the Today bucket when you're ready to accomplish these tasks!

I hope this helps!! :)

If you haven't had a chance to leverage If This Then That service (http://IFTTT.com), I highly recommend it. In particular, you can find magnificent ways of sending things automatically to Evernote, such as emails. Take a look at this wonderful post!

This is also a really good way to help you get things done! Collect everything with Siri into Evernote, and then process & organize later when you're back at your desk!!

Siri, the iPhone 4S digital assistant, does so many useful things; it helps you find the nearest pizza joint, reminds you to buy bread and even quotes 2001: A Space Odyssey. Did you know that you can also use Siri to dictate notes into your Evernote account? It’s true, and best of all, you probably already have it configured.

Evernote®: The unofficial eBook to capturing everything and getting things done is HERE!
Introduction
The purpose of this eBook is to help your mind relax, allow you to breathe easier, and allow you to become more productive by being able to make better decisions by using Evernote® to help give you back control and become more productive by implementing best practices tied to the wildly popular Getting Things Done® (GTD®) methodology, which was developed by The David Allen Company. The benefit of taking the time to read this eBook is that you will not only be able to make better decisions about how to organize your life in the electronic world, but this will also be a “living eBook”. In other words, every quarter, you will receive an email notification, not only letting you know that I’ve added sections, but it will let you know exactly what I’ve added. In essence, this is the eBook that keeps on giving!

Why I am I qualified to write this eBook? Well, I don’t work for Evernote. I’m just a former practicing lawyer turned consultant for a global company for the largest law firms in the country. My passions include blogging about productivity on the side and helping people turn boring presentations into awesome works of art. My most important jobs though include being a husband and a father. I’ve used Evernote since 2008, and I’ve been implementing the Getting Things Done methodology since 2007. Between all my roles and responsibilities, I’ve leveraged Evernote to help me juggle my many roles to lead a successful life – one in which I strive every day to have balance and amind like water.
