Action Lists

I use a waiting label to indicate things I'm waiting on (interestingly, via: https://blog.todoist.com/user-stories/9-ways-to-use-todoist-labels-filters/). This is a wonderfully easy way to get a sense of everything I'm waiting on someone else to deliver. However, if I'm waiting on a bunch of things, it can make my list tough to parse. I'll have to scan past things that I can't actually do.

To get around this, I created an action Smart List that excludes anything tagged with waiting. It's an easy way to see the things I can actually work on. I use it for my work list, so the syntax is "not tag:waiting and list:work" but you can use the "not tag:waiting" to see everything you're not waiting on. I think of this as my action list!
