GTD Solution for the Mac

Like most GTD fans I’m constantly struggling to find the perfect suite of applications for my Mac. I have the principles in place, but I’m missing the tools that would allow me to get the most done in a day.

So I’m asking my readers. Have you stumbled upon a method that works for you? What do you recommend?

I’m aware of a bunch of the pricey tools, Things for example, but I’d like to find a cheaper/free option. I also realize that a true GTD setup is going to be unique to each other, but I’m still interested in hearing everyone’s tips and suggestions.

    I have been using with

    I found that Things had too many bells and whistles and actually went against GTD principles.

    I find that using the above listed things allows me a simple note taking/to do system that syncs seamlessly with my Mac, iTouch and with an Online System (something that Things does not offer).

    Its super simple with bo bells or whistles but I have used this longer than any other system.

    After struggling like you did for quite some time I realized that my time was too valuable to be farting around with inadequate tools and so I bit the bullet and set up Things on my Mac and bought Things for the iPhone. I haven't looked back.

    Now all I need is for Things to have a connector to my Jott profile so that I can dictate tasks to myself while I'm driving in the car. That is most often where I think of things that need to get done.

    For implementing GTD you can use this web-based application:

    You can use it to manage your goals, projects and tasks, set next actions and contexts, use checklists, schedules and a calendar.
    Comes with a mobile version too, and with an Android app.
