Short details Nirvana has evolved into an excellent personal GTD and GTD solution, worth looking at.

Particularly nice is its ability to pause or schedule projects (and all tasks within them) and designate project steps as sequential or simultaneous. You can also star tasks to create an instant "must do today" list as taught in TRO Online training.
Create lists of items, set due dates, notes, and add Gmail messages directly to Tasks.
