Due the abundance of information out there about "Getting Things Done" (GTD), David & Co. has responded with a web page that provides an official definition of this term:

I have been a member of GTD Connect for almost a month now, but have been reading David Allen's material on Getting Things Done for almost 4 years. While I acknowledge the fact that no two people are identical, I would like to share an experience and a blinding realization that...
Has anyone here read or thought about whether and how to
habit changes with GTD?
You could treat the intention of changing a habit as a project. But more often than not, there are no Next Actions tied to habit changes, as most habits are practiced unconsciously.
I'm relatively new to the GTD scene, and I have a problem that I'm sure others are having. I have a PC at work -- and a MAC at home! Now, I've really taken to the whole TaskList in Outlook thing -- it works incredibly well for me, and I want to have -- NEED to have -- all my tasks in...
Can anyone tell me what this workshop is about, and if is is still run from time to time as an open course.
I have just read the book and listened to CD's and i am possibly reading too much into it but im having a problem grasping this concept. I have searched the site and cant seem to find an answer so please treat me gently the answer is probably staring me straight in the face but here goes,
under Status the "Next Actions" and "Actions" have active items in them, but they don't show up/ Under contexts I have a car rental confirmatio nthat I labeled as "C:@California" and "S:Next Action" , but it doesn't show up under next actions. In terms of percentages of "working smoothly" the GTD...
I am new to GTD and have the following questions.
I have created a project called "Improve physical strength"
My first action was "look for different GYM in my neighborhood"
But after that I get a repeating next action "excercise at GYM".
This action will be reapeted week after week.
Somewhere on David's site I've found the following statement about priorities:
- focus on something important
- refocus on interruptions as they come up
- handle volumes of unclarity
- reprioritize based on changing data
- and ... stay sane at the same time.
I can't get what is meant by...
I'm hoping someone out there has some ideas that can help me. For years, I have struggled with how to keep up with the workload of my employees to make sure that we do not fall behind on tasks. Our job involves working with up to six different Project Managers on as many as 15 different projects,...
I seem to get distracted a LOT at work. I've tried task lists on outlook express, legal pads, etc. and still don't get things done, both daily tasks, new tasks that pop up, and long term projects and tasks.
To top it off, the stress of the industry that I'm in, which is having difficult...
In one of the teleseminars, probably Making change stick, David mentions a psychological term describing the imaging of what you would feel or look like if you really did make the change stick. He talks about a Time article from the fifties, as far as I can remember. The term starts with the...
I am a little confused as to how I could possibly use Gmail for my GTD system. I have setup my labels,contacts,filters,etc.. as per Kelly Forrister's article, but cannot see the point. I send myself e-mails to create my next actions, or add info to a project, but since Gmail does not have a...
Last week I understood I didn't feel satisfaction when checking off Next Actions from my @action list. I enjoy doing something only when I can concentrate on the most important project in the moment and work till some point where I can't go further (have to wait for any additional information or...
I am still implementing the GTD with my outlook and computer and have the following question:
What is the best way to store project meeting notes and project support information in your computer? I just keep making folders in windows with word files (that have bulleted lists in...
My "S:Waiting On" label shows 7 waiting on labeled emails, but when I click on that label, only 1 email pops up. When I click on "show all unfinished" they all pop up. What's up?:rolleyes: :D
Hello all, I am new to GTD, and have 2 questions concerning projects (I think)?
1. Continuous/lifelong projects: I have a Family Tree project that must be continually updated (births, deaths, new ancestor found, etc...), but I may not have any next action for months at a time. Does this project...
Ok all...how many collection methods do you have?
Can you help me...I carry a hPDA, notecards and pen, with me throughout the day as well as a notebook with dividers. At times I feel I have too many collection methods and not transferring or making sure all my information is in one place, too...
