View Full Version : Implementing GTD for Sales People
07-06-2009, 09:14 AM
I'm taking Friday off to give myself 3 full days to implement GTD at home and work. I'm still not entirely sure how I'm going to implement GTD at work without just creating a lot more duplicate work for myself. Can any sales people give me advice on how to structure a GTD system around a Business Development focused career? How do you use your GTD system along with a CRM like Siebel without it becoming overwhelming?
You might check out this post by Ismael Ghalimi (http://www.gtdtimes.com/2008/04/03/getting-things-done-with-office-20/). He uses SalesForce.com to structure his system. Not precisely what you're looking for, but might be a good start.

I am also in sales, and faced the same issue.
(I was using ACT at the time)
I tried to make act conform to the GTD structure and it did not quite work...
I ended up keeping sales related actions in the CRM, and personal projects/action lists in toodledo with reminders in both systems to check the other system on regular basis.
