Happy New Years!
Tools to help Mac users with Getting Things Done (or “GTD”), David Allen’s work-smart philosophy, fall into three camps:
- Email clients, where most of the stuff that needs to get done arrives in the first place, tweaked to do the job.
- Dedicated GTD apps like kGTD or Easy Task Manager provide more focussed collection and processing buckets.
- Web-based solutions offer platform-independent tools for getting things done, especially good if you use a Mac at home and a PC at work.

The Compact Calendar is designed to provide a compact view of the year, with plenty of space for making annotations. I use it as to “doodle plan” project timelines during meetings with clients. Since the days are presented contiguously while retaining the days of the week, you get a more intuitive sense of how the days are flowing and can estimate accordingly.
