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:
Many have asked if they can help fight spam in this forum. In the bottom left corner of each and every post there is a little "Report Post" icon. You will need to be logged into the Forums to see this icon. It looks like this:

I'd like advice on:
1. What to buy as a replacement for a Casio Databank watch that's wearing out:
another Casio Databank, or is there something out there with a bit more functionality?
2. Care of the Casio Databank or similar watch: Should I avoid pressing keys with
my fingernail? If so,...
I see that the most recent post on Midnight Beep's program, Inbox, is from more than a year ago.
I'll state upfront that I'm relatively new to the GTD process/method and that I have not really implemented it in full. However, for myself, the most important hold back has been that I have not...
Best file cabinet under $120 ?
I dont have that many physical folders to store...
Bonus : if the store or item is available for shipping to Canada. Or is in the Toronto area !
Maybe I'm not outlook savvy enough, but I set up my tasks following the setup guide (nice clear instructions by the way), and then I entered all my 'stuff' from all my current lists (I use basecamp for that right now but wanted something with more flexibility to move among lists).
Then I got...
Most of my work comes in from email. I use Netcentrics outlook overlay but I think I am missing something when it comes to reference folders. I seem to be creating projects, just so I have a place to store emails that are more general reference than projects with "next actions". If someone would...
I see David's objections to the hanging file system, but how do you call the alternative?? the book just says 'use plain folders standing up by themselves' - but I only see hanging cabinets when i do search online (amazon for example).
perhaps if someone could post a link to such filing cabinet,...
After searching for quite a while online, I did not find any online shop (nor offline) that sells, in Europe, tabbed file folders (1/3 cut) as suggested in GTD and in the General Reference Filing.pdf (page 2).
I know they can be bought in the DavidCo webshop, but to import 200 ŕ 300 folders to...
My filing cabinets are so full that it is a little bit of a struggle filing a single sheet of paper.
Many times I have moved the last 3 inches or so of a draw into the front of the next draw and then reduced the padding in the back of that draw to make extra space. Its a bit of a drag having to...
I know this has been touched on before but I haven't yet been able to find an answer to my specific situation, hopefully one of you has.
I use outlook 2010 on a pc (set up as recommended by the guide from this site). I am not on an exchange server. I use outlooks business contact...
This is silly buy I remember my old brother labeler had some tool (forget what) that made peeling off labels (from the backing) easier. Using one's fingernails (male here) is not optimal and there should be easier way.
I've been using GTD concepts for 4-5 years and currently use Omnifocus as my list manager. Does anyone here successfully use GTD with Omnifocus and the 'Horizons of Focus' concept to manage their life from their life purpose to their next actions?
I'm new to GTD and also to Outlook for anything more than an email inbox. I want to use Outlook for my base tool for GTD.
Would you recommend I use the GTD white paper or the add in?
Thanks for your help!
So I am wanting to get an iPad 2 and looking for reasons to justify getting one haha:D
It would be a great tool for my legal research for my phd and thinking that it would great gtd tool - for omnifocus, a diary / day planner etc.
Any one use one and have any thoughts ?
I'm currently working on a graphical task manager.
Instead of having a list of tasks, the tool allows you to create a flowchart of your tasks. Based on this flowchart, the tool automatically generates a list of possible next actions.
Do you think something like this could be...
I've been trying GTD for a while, and it has worked to a certain extent. Now I find myself having certain expectations that I am unable to fulfill due to the programs I use.
Most of what I do it on the computer. Whatever I get in paper is filed by projects, or general contexts like...
I *know* this is going to have been discussed before so apologies, but......
I am looking for a list manager app for my BlackBerry. Currently my set-up is Google contacts and calendar. Both of these sync seamlessly with the BB, but Google tasks will not sync (it's not designed to do so). Much as...
I've been a Palm Centro user for years now, until I lost my phone.
I'd buy another Palm Centro, only it's already phased out.
Can anyone suggest a phone that would do what Palm Centro does?
The basic functionalities that I'd like to have are:
I have written before about my procrastinating ways. Which system to use, what size Ciirca notebook letter or jr., which app etc.etc.etc. my company just gave me an iPad so of course I'm looking at what apps to use, wasting more and more time. I'm a sales professional, and I'm hurting myself...
I just started setting up GTD using Google Tasks (along with Gmail and Google Calendar). I'm keeping individual lists for:
Areas of Focus
I'm nearing my Add In trial, very happy with it. One thing that worries me is the backup and restore procedure, or maybe the lack of it, as I did not find anything on this in user's manual or Google.
Thing is, my company has this no-local-files policy. Therefore our laptops are just...
