Hawk Wings: 10 Mac GTD tools

Hawk Wings » Blog Archive » Ten Mac tools for Getting Things Done

Tim Gaden summarizes ten tools with which Mac users can do GTD.

Tools to help Mac users with Getting Things Done (or “GTD”), David Allen’s work-smart philosophy, fall in to three camps:

  1. email clients, where most of the stuff that needs to get done arrives in the first place, tweaked to do the job.
  2. Dedicated GTD apps like kGTD or Easy Task Manager offer more focussed collection and processing buckets.
  3. Web-based solutions offer platform-independent tools for getting things done, especially good if you use a Mac at home and a PC at work.

Includes Backpack (in conjunction with the Quicksilver plugin), Kinkless, and Gina's Todo.txt. Definitely worth a look -- especially if you've recently switched to a Mac and want to see what all the fuss is about.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
