It’s been a little over a week since I began the GTD Gmail Experiment.
I quickly discovered that I have great difficulty adjusting to the no folders email environment of Gmail. As my email was forwarded there, I experienced an overload of psychic baggage. I soon took off the forwarding from my other email account. I reasoned that I could forward email that is a task to the Gmail account, which excels at managing tasks.
I like to have one application that takes care of all my needs-it’s all about one stop shopping for me. In theory I could add calendar items to Yahoo, then sync to PDA, then export to the Gmail calendar. In actuality that’s too many steps and I don’t do it.
Despite it’s attractions, I won’t be able to fully use Gmail until these problems are resolved:
- The option of folders for us folks who can’t adjust to life without them.
- Calendar must be able to sync to PDA.
- Add notepad.
- Spam should auto-delete.
