I am using Evernote for a while, and it is great tool for capturing and storing reference materials. It could be perfect tool for the whole GTD setup but - as many of you know - there is no "Due date" and a calendar functionality. And non-native solutions like Tusktools, Nozbe, Zendone are not really convenient.
Evernote representatives explicitly say that they don't want to add calendar functionality.
Personally, I love a comment from this thread
Recently I've listen to fantastic "In conversation " with Marshall Goldsmith. His statement thatWhy should Evernote work on making itself more GTD friendly? Despite what GTD zealots may think, most of the world is not using GTD and many productivity experts have issues with some of the weakness in the GTD system. It’s not my intention to get into a debate about the merits of GTD, but I’m constantly amused by these kinds of demands from GTD supporters. Maybe the GTD rights-owners should make it one of their “next actions” to consider building GTD-specific software instead of expecting every developer to add GTD functionality to their apps.
was eye-opening for me.Every decision that affects our lives will be made by the person who has the power to make that decision, not the "right" person or the "smartest" person or the "best" person
This idea suggests two possibilities :
To accept the attitude of decision-makers. In this case Evernote company
or to try to influence it.
I want to ask an opinion of senior "GTD zealots" - can we influence Evernote, or we should just make peace with the Evernote decision?
