Google Notebook

Google is starting to really integrate its 10 million different products. Lately, I’ve been attracted to Google Notebook, which can quickly be used as a GTD tool. I’ve set up my “notebooks” as:

  • inbox (to process)
  • next actions (to do)
  • someday/maybe
  • reference
  • projects

When I stumble across something I’m interested in, I simply dump it in the inbox. This gets processed through the GTD work flow and sorted as necessary. Fortunately, a la Gmail, Google Notebook has powerful search option that really eliminates the need to arrange items in such granular folders.

Next steps:

  • Create a bookmarks notebook to track all my favorite sites
  • Clip useful articles from blogs as I read them
