Alex's GTD Gmail tip

Alex has a nifty way of using gmail filters to automatically create a Waiting For list:

Whenever he requests something he wants to keep track of, he also sends a blind carbon copy to himself.


He creates a filter that says:  

"Whenever gmail receives things sent from his account to his account..."


"...make those things skip the inbox and get labelled "@WaitingFor".

Email labels, like sports cars, I don't normally like. But I think I will take this one for a testdrive.
