1  Personal Effectiveness / Personal Effectiveness Tools / What's In Your Toolkit? on: May 30, 2005, 06:44:20 PM
I am an ADD GTDer.  I keep it as simple as Microsoft (Windows) and Palm let me.  I use Outlook 2002, customized along the lines of "Implementing David Allen's Workflow Processing using Microsoft Outlook".  I synch with my Palm, using the basic apps.  Out-of-the-box Outlook has so many baroque bells and whistles, imperfectly implemented, that it is impossible to love, no matter how dependent one might be on it.

I am also testing the WHKratz approach to borrowing the Outlook Contact database structure to manage Projects and their associated Tasks within Outlook.

I occasionally use TealTracker on my Palm for tracking time utilization.  It's not bad.

I experiment with Project, a Palm-based project outliner (Work Breakdown Structure) that integrates with Palm Tasks and has a somewhat buggy desktop mate.  

I am experimenting with Open Workbench for heavy-duty project management.

I occasionally use SmartListToGo for Palm-based databases for things like my library (way too big to be useful).  I haven't bothered to get beyond its desktop mate yet.

Only Outlook, the Palm basic apps, and TealTracker would be candidates for what Sciral Consistency seems to do: help in the establishment of regular habits.  Oh, and paper.

I wish that there were one comprehensive, integrated package that handled all the aspects of personal organization the way I wanted without me having to program it, but just writing down what I want makes it clear what a pipe dream it is.

"My Life Organized" looks like another interesting piece of software to look at once it is out of Beta.
