If you like David Allen’s Getting Things Done and you use a Mac then you might also like the GTD and Entourage PDF book. It’s a $10 download but worth it if you’re a GTD freak and are tired of seeing all the how-to’s for Outlook on a PC. I bought a copy yesterday and it’s already allowed me to simplify my Entourage set-up. I struggled to get organised with a combination of Apple Mail and iCal as they just didn’t cut the mustard. iCal doesn’t allow you to add categories to to-do’s and Mail doesn’t fully work with an Exchange server in anything other than IMAP mail mode. As much as I was reluctant to go back to Entourage, setting up a simple workflow has eased the pain and now I’m happy.
Oh, and thanks to GTD my inbox is now always empty at the end of the day!
