Help! I’m using GTD Gmail and I can’t stop!

I started experimenting with my new Google Gmail account (thanks to Andrew!) and I’m so fascinated I’ve been at it for hours! I immediately got the GTD Firefox extension, which to me is what makes it so cool. I had no difficulty importing my address book and calendar. I set it up to forward incoming email from my former email (I think) so I’ll see how that goes.

I love the way it integrates your tasks (via emailing yourself with filters you set up) and your calendar. I love the way you can print your agenda view and hipster pda, although ideally they would print together. I love the way I set up a context for Repeating Tasks that are easily changed back and forth from the Action context. Two big drawbacks: no notepad, and no automatic syncing to PDA, both of which are very important to me.:( So I won’t be giving up Yahoo anytime soon. Also quite annoying: spam does not auto-delete. I’ve gotten quite used to never looking at it.

I’ve still got a lot to learn, but for now it’s time to get up and stretch.

I enjoy finding great information, combining it in new ways, and packaging it creatively. I'm highly interested in the areas of goal setting, time management, and skills to improve life.
