I’m a big fan of David Allen’s “Getting Things Done,” which is a powerful time-management/productivity methodology. This week Jason Clark from the Downloadsquad writes a two-part article on GTD. Specifically, he compares using Microsoft Outlook versus web-based products as your “organizer” Both posts are worth the read if you’re into GTD.
In summary, Jason like the online options, citing the strength of having your “stuff” anywhere you might want it. It’s also pretty robust, can’t be stolen, etc. The downside, and this is the killer for me and most missionaries I know, is how reliant on internet connectivity it is. Until the whole world has broadband, and that will be a looonngg time, no web-based anything is going to be very useful.
