I'm also using a perl script to turn my org file of
* ProjectName    :Project:
** NextAction     :Context1:
** AnotherNextAction     :Context2:

(i) a list of Projects (ie all items tagged with :Project:); and
(ii) individual pages for each :context: tags with a list of
corresponding next actions

One way that helps me remember what the next action is about is to
append [ProjectName] to the next action so the output is:

- NextAction [ProjectName]

Do you have any interesting tools to help the weekly review?

Only thing I've come up with so far is to generate a list of Projects
(identified by the :Project: tag) which have no next actions (ie where
the next item in the org outline also has a :Project: tag.

Also on the list of projects I'm printing them as
ProjectName [number of next actions]
which helps me see where projects have a lot of stuff building up

It's all fairly rudimentary at the moment, particularly as I'm using
this as a way to learn perl - I'm a lawyer not a programmer ;-) - but
I'm having fun.

how do you implement your tickler file?

So far I don't have one.  I have been thinking about a separate
"reminders" file with the format:
StartDate, DueDate, NextAction :context:
Then amending the perl script to parse this file as well so that any
nextactions whose startdate is on or before today also get included in
the context lists generated above.
