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.
Setting Jello Dashboard as Outlook homepage allows a GTD-style workflow. Collect, review, and do all from one place. Jello Dashboard can even be used on a locked-down company machine because it does not require installation.
