[Updated] Evernote GTD Setups and Related Posts on Hanami Design

I’ve almost made a hobby out of writing about different ways to configure Evernote for David Allen’s Getting Things Done, enough so that I’ve begun to forget all the ways I’ve explored. Thought it might be time for a recap.

New! Fourth system

Third system

Second system

First system

    Hi :-)
    I love the work you have done on Evernote and GTD. Thank you for posting all this; it has helped me enormously with tweaking my own (brand new) Evernote/GTD setup.
    I do have a question that you may be able to comment on, please?
    I have started using Google Calendar for day specific tasks but there does not seem to be a setting for reminders for tasks?
    My calendar syncs with Outlook and Android phone.
    Any assistance so appreciated.

      Hi Eileen!

      Happy to hear I’ve been able to help.

      As far as Google Calendar and task reminders, I often schedule tasks for specific times and set event reminders. If setting a specific time for a task doesn’t make sense for you, you could create an all day event in Google Calendar with an alarm.

    Thanks Weszt for the prompt response. OK, so I will have to schedule an ‘event’ rather than a task. Tasks do not have reminders – unless I am missing something!!

      Not sure… haven’t actually used the task feature in Gmail. Will need to investigate!

    I’m planning to use Springpad rather than Evernote, as the 40tech blog and others seem to make a strong case for it with GTD. Your posts have been very helpful in helping me organize my first GTD system regardless of the tech tool! I love reading about your context lists and structure. Please keep it up regularly.

      That’s awesome, Ryan!

      I’ve been itching to play around with Springpad so I’ll be anxious to hear how it works out for you.

      One thing I’m also considering is trying out the latest setup with text files and desktop folders.
