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:

This isn't strictly GTD, but as part of my GTD implementation I am moving to using Outlook for all Contact/Calendar data, from ACT, and I have a couple of questions. I thought I would ask here as I know there are a lot of Outlook enthusiasts :)
How do you display the Day...
My name is Robert and I have some dear friends whose son has had 11 strokes.
They have to make a decision within the next couple of years whether he can go to college or not. The boy is smart, but has memory problems.
According to his mom, he seems to have problems choosing which...
I'm sure my newbie question here must have been covered before,
but I just can't find any good search terms, so here we go again :)
While implementing GTD in a paper planner, I came across some items from my
pile of previous lists an notes that I can't quite fit anywhere.
Whats the difference between project outcomes & project goals?
example: if my project is "revamp lawn" the goal is a beautiful lawn but the outcome is also a beautuful lawn? So I need to clarify the difference (if there is one) between these terms.
In general , I did a 5 minute search but...
People's dividing lines between Projects and Someday/Maybes for items that are more Someday than Maybe are scattered throughout many threads. It might be handy to have a reference thread where we report/discuss our own dividing lines and how they are working for us.
My dividing line is that I...
So, here's the thing...what is it about many of us (present company included) that we disire to do more, be more, get organized, and yet, it is so difficult to keep doing things like GTD? You know, sometimes, you'll say to yourself, "I'll remember that...I don't need to write it down" and yet, you...
I'm a newbie here, so forgive me if this has been done before... :idea:
I was thinking it would be great if all the fantastic links to GTD resources (software, blogs, articles, groups, etc) could all be listed in one thread.
I'd like to kick off the list with some links I found that others...

New to GTD, doing my best to get in the groove. Thanks for your patience: :-|
Using the GTD Outlook Add-In: When I view "Active Tasks By Action", should all those items I've entered there be my Next Actions? I have 10 or so projects and several aspects (to-do's) of each. I guess I'm a little...
Been sort-of GTD-ing for about 6-12 months but just last month bought the book. What a difference that makes!!
I uset Outlook/PocketPC as my main projects/actions list.
Now my "problem" is this... When you look at something do you always define what the Next Action is or do you select it at...
Hi all after some guidance on this forum I managed to track down GTDPolice/Next Step hybrid macro.

I am using microsoft Outlook on my Pc at the office. However, I am not permitted to syncronise my pda with my office computer due to company policy.
I syncronise my pda with my home Pc, but also want to syncronise all of my tasklists from my work pc with my home pc and pda - but how do I do...
what do you do, if a task has to be completet by tomorrow evening. Do you:
- put it on tomorrows calender to show that its due then? (you would not see it today)
- put it on the calender for both days (because it probably takes more then one day?)
-not put it on the calender (and...
I've installed the trial version of GTD at work having had the full version at home.
Just a question for all you regular GTD users and forum browsers. I'm sure that somebody on this board took the time and effort to redesign the task form so that you can sort tasks by project as well...
I think somebody here may have described this strategy or triggered the idea, but thought I'd just say Thanks to whoever and reiterate the idea, it's working great for me.
You know all those documents you don't ever really need to reference but you have to keep them around because (a) you feel...

OK, I'm in sales and I need to have with me my cold calling scripts, my company's product cheat sheets and other stuff that I will need immediately upon a notice. Stuff more like numbers for conference calls, etc. Mostly I satisfied thru Password software on my Blackberry.

Since Jan, I've been getting more organised/tracking things I've done.
I also moved on to GTD( about a month ago). So I've actually got a list
of the things done since 1st Feb. Theres 230 things done. But most of these are realtively trivial eg put up roller blind, top up mobile phone,...
Do you use @Agendas category? If you do and if you have some agendas you want to communicate to someone do you wait for an occasion with him or plan a meeting (i.e. next action for that should be @Call someone to discuss the agenda). Please advice what's right.
Can I ask if anyone uses a voice recorder as a capture tool? I have ordered one and am trying to think of when I would use it.
Do you use it to record notes to yourself whilst in public? Do you feel embarrassed doing this? What sort of notes do you leave yourself?
Or did you buy one...
