Wrangle your snippets

The GTD Way

Are you a fan of David Allen’s Getting Things Done (GTD) organization methods? Check out one of the many snippet keepers that emphasize the GTD model:

Tracks: This free Web-based implementation of GTD lets you quickly sort tasks and notes according to their context (so you have a handy to-do list ready when you want to focus on errands or on office tasks, for instance). If you apply a due date to an action, its color will change to reflect how much time you have left.

Kinkless GTD: If you use The Omni Group’s $70 OmniOutliner Pro (   ) to manage your snippets, Kinkless GTD, a free set of Apple Scripts, is a way to turn the app into a full-featured GTD-style task manager.

Midnight Inbox: This $35 program by Midnight Beep steps you through the process of putting the GTD system to work. The program collects incoming e-mails, documents, and to-do items and helps you process those items.
