I'm trying to port my Outlook GTD system to my new MacBook Pro, where I'd like to use the Mac programs iCal, Mail, and Adress Book instead of Entourage. And I'd like to keep my Pocket PC iPAQ instead of switching to Palm. Is anyone out there doing this? I'm using MarkSpace's synchro program for the iPAQ and ran into problems but they have great tech support, and a guy named Ed is walking me through the problems.
One missing link in my dream configuration is how to handle my GTD checklists and other lists that I've been keeping in Outlook's Notes. The Mac programs don't have a Notes-like program that I can synchronize with my iPAQ. Maybe I should just make lists in Word and synchronize that?
I also haven't figured out how to recreate my empty-inbox system in Outlook for e-mail, using lots of folders to store messages in. The Mac's Mail program has folders and smart folders. Is anyone using Mail who could guide me toward setting up the folders?
I switched to Mac because my entire family is on them, and I want to be able to provide tech support and do videoconferencing to see my new grandson. Plus, I love the podcasting capabilities of GarageBand. But, boy I miss the simplicity of my Outlook system with the GTD add-in. I feel as if I have wandered into GTD no-man's land. And I'd like to get organized before I attend David's Boston workshop on April 19th.
Any help from fellow Mac-GTDers would be appreciated.
