G(mail)TDGetting Things Done, Gmail-style.

Thanks to Eric and Jack for inspiration - my new GTD system consists of Gmail labels and filters that auto-archive emails with certain tags (like username+tag@gmail.com).

Then, I just email myself ideas and tasks from wherever I am, and attack them when I'm in the appropriate context.

We'll see how this works. Seems lighter than kGTD (which is also good).

[Update] It works. My inbox is always empty, and all my T's are getting D'd.

The trick: assign the new context before you remove the old one.

I'm loving GTD. I've been using for about three weeks now and it's made a world of difference to my level of organisation.
I like your GMail approach, but I don't really use GMail, so kGTD is it for me (and I really like it, as you do)
