Which TODO list are you referring to?

   1) The todos on your scheduled agenda (C-c a a)?

   2) The list of all your todos (C-c a t)?

If #1, then you can change the amount of lead time for the agenda with
the following:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
 ** TODO Do weekly task
    DEADLINE: <2009-06-03 Wed +1w -3d>
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

This will cause the todo item to show up on your agenda no sooner than
three days before it is due.

If #2, you might want to check the following variables:


These will keep items with deadlines out of your general TODO list. You
can set these globally or use them as local variables in custom agenda
