Awarness-enhancing piece of data.
I think you can attach due dates to Projects and Next Actions.

Evernote works as a GTD tool ... for me
I wanted to add my voice here as a very happy Evernote GTD'er.
Personally, I think Evernote should maintain their vision and not be swayed by a small subgroup of users ... whether they be GTDers or not. I wouldn't want another small group of users influencing Evernote with functionality that suits only them, and makes the system more cumbersome for me.
And I think one of the skills we build as GTDers is making our ecosystems work, regardless of the tools we have at hand. I don't think we have to all use the same tools .. infact, I don't think that would work. I like the freedom that DAC allows for different vendors to build or customise tools as they see fit. I've used 3 or 4 different tools for my list manager to date, and if my environment changes, I'd like to be able to switch my ecosystem.
Having said all that, I really like my Evernote setup. I don't want the calendar in Evernote ... I am sure other calendar applications would be better than what Evernote comes up with. If a vendor decides to put it in the trunk I might consider it but Google Calendar work well for me.
I have only one item on my Evernote wish list and that is the ability to navigate from a note to the related notebook.
FYI - I've written more about my Evernote setup on my blog: www.enyonam.com.
And I'll have to write a post about how I deal with dates in Evernote.
Phill Libin on Evernote Task management
I wouldn't mind having some sort of built in reminder system and link with a calendar in Evernote.
Evernote's CEO is giving us some hope in this interview
Now one of the questions is ”What’s your favorite to-do list manager?”
Phil Libin answers ”You know, I don’t actually have one. I use Evernote, which isn’t particularly great for to-dos yet. Yet.”
So it seems to me some new features are to be expected.
PS: Fokke and Enyonam, I will now check out your blogs!
