About Us

Getting things done should be delightful and fun.

Nirvana is built by the folks at PeopleLikeUs in lovely Montreal, Canada. Elbert is our lead developer, founder and resident GTD® geek. David and Romina make sure we’re on track and that our community questions get answered. Mitch is our iOS and Android go-to guy, Joël helps keep them servers humming, and Adam helps us keep it real.

We are bootstrapped and profitable. With over 100,000 signups we are delighted to be helping people, in our own little way, to find a better life / work balance through GTD and the Nirvana apps we’ve lovingly refined over the years.

If you are a seasoned practitioner of the GTD® methodology we think you’ll feel right at home with Nirvana. And even if you’ve never heard of GTD®, we’ve been told by countless thousands that Nirvana is simple to use and quickly becomes a powerful tool in helping to maintain a state of calm in this rather noisy world.

Standing on the shoulders of those who came before us, we’ve borrowed what we think are the best ideas others have implemented, refined them and added a dash of awesome to create what we’ve always wanted in a GTD app — and then put it in the cloud. Please let us know where we got it right and where we could do better!

We invite you to comment on our blog posts, tweet what you like (or not) about Nirvana, and to join the conversation over in the Nirvana Forums.

What is GTD®?

GTD® rests on the principle that a person needs to move tasks out of the mind by recording them externally. That way, the mind is freed from the job of remembering everything that needs to be done, and can concentrate on actually performing those tasks.
