comment Keep repeated tasks in GTD task management system or calendar?
@user6076: you could say that. But I'm talking about the difference in flexibility: If I change my toothbrush two days later. In contrast: not preparing for a weekly meeting in time will possibly end in a desaster. There may however be examples which can not easily sorted into these two categories.

comment Schedules, timetable or tasklist?
@KartikAnand: IMO it really helps to break down the work into chunks for every week first, and then to further divide it into portions for every day. This way you will know that 1. you have enough time to do your work and 2. how much time you can spend for leisure e.g. on the weekend. If according to your plan 6h a day is enough then you don't have to stress out and pull all-nighters (assuming that you stick to your plan and your plan is reasonable).

comment What's a good cloud based notebook?
Have actual files / have mobile app / edit in emacs. All solutions I can think of tick only 2 of 3 boxes. Or is it enough to view the files on your android device?

comment How to manage daily tasks especially in office
One thing GTD can not really fix is lack of motivation, but braking something down sometimes helps to feel less overwhelmed.

comment How to manage daily tasks especially in office
I think your question consists in fact of three questions: 1. How to improve my excel skills? (maybe better suited on another stackexchange subsite) 2. How to improve my techninical english (search the site for some suggestions) and 3. How do I manage my daily tasks. For the third question, I would like to know which method you currently use. For me, the "getting things done" method has a nice collection of ideas which are worth thinking about even when you do not implement a real gtd system for yourself.

comment Super effective way of storing day to day information where I can access them quickly?
@Ashfame: I group the evernote notes into large groups like DIY, reference, work, blogging. Whats more important is to make sure that you will find them again via the search bar, so include tags. I also write a two sentence abstract in front of saved web articles which include crucial keywords.

Is there the possibility that you are the author? Then you should say so if you are proud of your app...

Some people say that they have implemented GTD with Evernote, and there are guides out there how to do it, so it's quite reasonable to include it into the list IMO.

comment Help me study and read paperlessly, with some ebook reader efficiently?
What ever you end up with: I missed the possibility to sync my last read page and bookmarks between my devices. This will work better with iTunes+iPad (but I refuse to touch anything other than a Macbook, because I need a device which accepts free software). If Android tablets have a good pdf reader which can read files from your Dropbox you may have the thing you need. Also notice: PDFs need screen space. This is also why the kindle sucks a this task.

comment Help me study and read paperlessly, with some ebook reader efficiently?
I agree with the things said about pdf and e-readers: I have a kindle 3 (the e-ink thing with the keyboard) and reading pdfs on the thing is not fun at all. Converting anything more than a plain text + some headings into another format does not work. Stay away from this kindle if you want to read pdfs, I would recommend a quality netbook + Dropbox. Geek-mode: forget about dropbox and use rsync or sth. similar.
