Your Do Today list instantly shows you only your “must do” items: bad things might happen if you don’t do these tasks today. For most of these, the hard date has arrived.

The Do Today list gets filled in: 1) manually, as you move items into the Do Today list by flagging them as Do Today, and maybe 2) more-or-less automatically, when the hard date arrives.

Correct processing and and daily reviews will keep your Do Today list short and sweet.
