Trouble Finding the right too for Tracking Projects

I am very frustrated. I really need an overview of my projects and Next Actions (Likewise for Waiting For, Deferred, Someday/Maybe, etc.)

I like the set up of kGTD, but frankly it just seems clunky to me. I need to give it more of a try, but I just can't get the hang of it. I want to do too many things like drag and drop.

What I don't get in kGTD is how you move things from say....SomeDay/Maybe into the Projects section. Do I need to start all over? As I can't drag and drop it.

I've tried EasyTask to no avail. Interface leaves me wanting more like being able ot visual everything at once in my Project List like kGTD does. I've Entourage via D.Allen's white paper. Too much crap involved. And iCal on it's own doesn't allow me to see individual Projects...just the tasks.

Does anyone know of a "how to use kGTD" I;ve watched the video and read other peaople's thoughts on it, but still having trouble.

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
