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 just finished working on the next version of the custom project form (see thread http://www.davidco.com/forum/showthread.php?t=3822 for details)
- Better performance
- More input fields and features on Project Form "main page"
- Ability to assign project to Contact
I've made my work on a custom project form for GTD available for download
as an attachement to this message. (See post http://www.davidco.com/forum/showthread.php?t=3812 for details).
This is not a product of any kind, just an unsupported contribution to the forum of the...
I just got Gmail, haven't used it much yet. But it looks pretty cool. There is an interface where you can associate labels with messages rather than putting them in folders. So a message could be associated with more than one keyword.
Also there are very good search/retrieval facilities with...
Boy do I feel left out, with all of this "Ecco Pro" talk going on. Are there any GTD-ers using this forum who are on Macs? Right now I'm using Entourage (2001, not OS X) for my master task list (moderately useful) and Palm desktop for contacts. Yes, this hybrid system is confusing and somewhat...
I've recently started experimenting with a new outlining/project managment program, My Life Organized, http://www.mylifeorganized.net It is similar to Lifeballanced but comes in three versions lite (free), standard, and pro which includes a sync to Outlook. The program seems young in its...
This is a poll of sorts, but I'm sure there are so many, I'm not going to make a poll. What do you use? Palm Pre? iPhone? Blackberry Curve? iPod Touch? Motorola Razr? Nokia N71?
Alright, going to edit the first post occasionally to tally the results (up to post 31):
I'm making the switch to a new GTD system, from my old MyLifeOrganized system. I've decided write up this quest as a series of posts. Here's the first one, with the apps and what I think makes a good GTD app/system. I'm then going to review each shortlisted app in detail.
I'm new to this forum but have been looking for simple inexpensive tools to get started with GTD. I keep seeing reference to omnifocus. I did look at the app online but it seems awfully expensive for a list manager- the price is saw was $79- Is there a less expensive version of this that does...
So I'm new to the GTD philosophy. But after reading David's book, I can see so much I agree with and am convinced that once applied the ideas are going to improve my life.
However I need to get started!
I have bought all the physical tools (Bisley Filing cabinet arriving this...
Would love to get an iPhone, but sticking with my Treo for now until someone figures out a way to make the iPhone GTD friendly. I know that the iPhone only allows 3rd party apps via the web.....anyone know if anything is being developed?
I have spent the last few weeks doing the latest round of my quest for the "right" GTD system. Once again I come up empty-handed and arrive back at "good old" Toodledo. I guess before I even start, I should say why I end back at Toodledo: it is rock solid, the web app is accessible everywhere,...
Action Lists (app store link) is a new task manager for the iPhone and iPod Touch based on the Getting Things Done (GTD) system. Action Lists harnesses the power of the GTD system with an easy to use interface that makes it fast to access the information you need when you need it.
We’re looking for beta testers of a web-based application which will help you to set, manage and share your goals. It is free, web-based and easy-to-use.
We just need you to create an account, set some goals, test it out and tell us what you think about it. That’s it. No expertise needed,...
I recently started using Microsoft OneNote 2007 as part of my GTD system. My GTD "hub" is still my task list in Outlook, but I do use OneNote for three purposes:
1. Capturing daily notes on the fly for future processing,
2. managing projects, and
3. storage of reference material.
I do a massive amount of volunteer management in my line of work, and one of the most useful techniques in GTD for me is the @waitingfor list. I use Outlook and drag and drop my sent e-mails to the task list to create my @waitingfor tasks. Most of the time I will be waiting for responses from...
We're compiling a comprehensive list of all GTD list manager apps - please help us make sure we're not forgetting any! List any you know of for any platform.

If anyone has a spare GMail invite, then I'd really appreciate it if you could send it to me at alistair (at) phrenetic (dot) co (dot) uk
Its about time I set up a collection bucket for my reference emails.
Thanks in anticipation
Bit off topic, but does anyone know of a good tool to store, save, protect usernames and passwords etc I am getting tired of keep forgetting them with the amount I have.
I have been running GTD on Filofax for a while now. As some others have reported, there is an occasional need to rewrite items when a page starts to get untidy and unattractive looking with many items crossed out.
It is the need for squared off tidiness that is making me think of switching to...
Could someone please tell me why everyone seems to be so fired up about using Moleskine notebooks? I've not seen one in person, but it looks like it's just a plain old notebook to me. Please, tell me - what's the big deal?
