As a long time Gmail user I fell into the trap of trying to make it jump through hoops (with lame grease monkey scripts, etc.) and meet all my needs…but in the end I found out that for me it’s most productive use was just as a web based email client.
While my search for the perfect Windows Getting Things Done (GTD) app continues, I’m resorting to using Gmail Tasks as an interim measure. While it’s not perfect — it’s nowhere near fully-featured enough for me — Google’s addition, last week, of the ability to move tasks between lists was definitely a step in the right direction for GTDers. You could use Tasks for GTD before, but moving actions between lists was painful, as you had to manually copy and paste the tasks

The whole trying to make square pegs fit into round round holes side of the productivity cult isn’t really working for me at the moment.
Efficiency is doing things right; effectiveness is doing the right things.
