GTD + FMP = ActionTracker

GTD (Getting Things Done) is a very interesting way of getting organized. FMP (FileMaker Pro) is a powerful end-user database. And ActionTracker looks like an excellent way to brings them together.

The other tool I found was
kGTD, which uses AppleScript to make OmniOutliner Pro perform the necessary steps. But this approach is doomed IMO: using a free-style outliner to move copies of information around is bound to stay brittle forever, whereas a database such as FMP can manage data in a perfectly relational structure and present numerous views on the same data using joins, selections, and ordering.

FMP is an incredibly well thought-out and mature system BTW, I'm surprised how little it seems to be appreciated and used.
