Using lists to expose "soon" and "long-term" items

Drowning in To-Dos? Get Organized! [Datamation]
Good overview of GTD includes some interesting thoughts on "time-sensitive" to-do-lists:
While these fall outside a canonical GTD implementation (not that this matters), I do love the idea of keeping "we're working toward doing this" in plain site.
One way I try to address this is right in kGTD where I often attach a note to a new project and express the purpose in terms of goals and outcomes. If this sounds dorky or hard to do for all your projects, consider instead whether you've really thought through a) how you'll know what success looks like, and b) whether this is really a project that deserves your attention just now.
