Integrating Multiple Lists -- Ticket Tracking & GTD

My full-time job is split between coding and management -- this means I've got my GTD system going -- inbox zero and all that, and I'm currently using Remember The Milk -- after trying KinklessGTD, iGTD, OmniFocus, and TaskPaper.

However, I'm struggling with how to integrate that system with my case/ticket tracking system, FogBugz. I can't simply block out half the day for working down my FogBugz list, and half the day for working down my RTM list -- sometimes, sometime on the FB list is the priority and I should be working on that all day; sometimes something on the RTM list is the current priority.

I'm toying with the idea of looking at both FB and my GTD list, and creating a merged list each morning, but I'm not sure if that would be workable.

How have other coders solved this problem?

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
