Mindless tasks

lclarke522 says:
I created a "mindless" tag for those tasks that take a decent amount of time, but don't require much brain-power (washing dishes, packing orders, etc.). These are perfect tasks to complete while your mind is engaged in something way more interesting, like listening to a favorite podcast.

A smart list created from the search query "tag:mindless AND dueBefore:Tomorrow" gives you a nice list of boring tasks - those due today, and also those overdue - that you can plug away at while you're thinking about more enjoyable things.

I also use a similar system. I vary between tags of brain dead and low energy.
