eProductivity and GTD in Lotus Notes

I downloaded the trial mail database and ran through the preview.  AWESOME.  If you are a GTDer, then all the terminology is familiar to you.  Actions, ticklers, Someday/Maybe – it’s all there.  I’ve still only scratched the surface because I tried it at work and can’t apply the template to my real mail file.  So I’m going to sign up for the demo template again and apply to my home system.  I use Lotus Notes as my mail/calendar system at home and have NOT applied GTD principles to my home life.  Sort of stupid, I know.  But ever since I got my BlackBerry Bold, I barely get into Notes at home.  I keep up on incoming mail on the Bold and very rarely send any mail out.  However, I DO keep my Next Actions in . . . well . . . NextAction! for the BlackBerry.  A nice handheld solution, it uses the BlackBerry tasks to hold the next actions along with contexts and projects.  This syncs with the ToDos in Notes and since the ToDos I believe are used by eProductivity there may be a nice synergy there.  I’ll let you know.  Maybe I’ll play with all this down in Florida this next week.  Since we’re no longer park rats, we have quite a bit of nice relaxing free time.

Oh, and give me a few days to get this site set up.  I had a blog running on my server at home, but after switching from Comcast to Verizon, I lost the ability to run a web server from home.  ALMOST made me go back to Comcast.
