Next Actions and Stars

I'm moving my list to Toodledo.

I'm reading the posts and getting the hang of how people are using it. My question though is handling next actions - specifically hot items that don't need to be done on a certain day or time, but have higher priority above anything else that is not scheduled (e.g. a meeting).

Often such tasks are part of a bigger project, so I want to don't want to separate things out, but I do need to flag them in some manner that tells me to spending time on X instead of Y or Z. (Even if Y or Z are much more fun. :))

How are you all flagging these? The Star function or some other way?

I use stars for this sort of thing, but reserve them mainly for short term things (Starred is sort of my manual Hotlist). For everything else, I usually just use the "Top" priority level, which I reserve for only the most critical tasks.

In general, to keep the fun stuff separate from the more frivolous but fun stuff, the two things that mainly do it for me are Priorities, and Folders which for me are areas of my life.
