Hi fellow GTDers-
Does anyone out there have a favorite "bible" for Outlook? I'd like the basics, doesn't need to be too advanced.
For reference, my fave Excel book is the Excel 2003 Bible by John Walkenbach.
Just curious what your thoughts are..
Thanks in advance.
I'm starting GTD. One step I've taken is simply carrying a paper 3"x5" pocket notebook on me. Just jotting down "in" as it pops into my brain is already stress-reducing.
The problem I'm encountering is having something to write with! I typically don't wear shirts with pockets. I find it easy to...
I use Outlook daily and have just started using a PDA (HP jornada). I find it's a great reference tool but data entry is very slow. I'd like to know what type of entry options people use and why. The options are "block recognizer, keyboard, letter recognizer & transcriber. Any tips would be greatly...
Is there a way to put items in categories and have dates appear on the calander in one step or does it require putting items in both places?
I've recently started using the Outlook calendar to display my day specific events and reminders up at the top of the calendar as 'all day' events. I usually also mark these 'complete' as I finish them.
What I'd like to be able to do (automatically) is have a macro that looks for...
Should we really use the delegated task feature to delegate actions to others?
While many people are usually excited to learn that their action management system will allow them to delegate actions to someone else, I find that many who have actually worked with such a system do not often share...
I am reading and implementing Sally McGhee's book Taking Back Your Life (using outlook w/ GTD). There is a suggestion to create "Metrics" around projects, a way to measure your objectives/timelines/mini projects. I understand what they want you to do, but do not know how to do it or implement it....
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...
As per subject, does anyone know if there is a way to view your calender, tasks and your email in one view, in Microsoft Outlook (with or without the GTD Add-In)?
I am still in the EVAL stage of using the GTD addon.
Quite often I reply to an email that requires no further action or followup. I simply need to file it in my achive folder.
At the moment I reply, and then MOVE IT from my INBOX.. very time consuming.
What does everyone else here do. Am...
Seeking recommendations for a good digital voice recorder. Ideally, I’d like one that I could use for presentations. I give a good number of speeches and presentations.
I'd like to record these on a small/discrete digital recorder, and then download to a PC via USB connection in a format...
What is the correct procedure for the outlook add-in for e-mail that is project related, but not necessarily a Next Action. In GTD methodology, this info should go onto project lists. I hate to admit it, but I've been processing these and putting them on Next Action lists. I think in reality...
You can use the Mead 8.5 x .5.5 pages in the FranklinCovey, and I'm
wondering if you can use them in the Filofax A5. Thanks.
Email me off line if you are interested.
We are just starting with GTD and we want to know how effective GTD Fast CDs? Do you listen to those CDs often?
Also, my wife is ER physician, so cannot really plan daily activities. Is there anyone with similar work situation using GTD? How do you do that?
Looking at getting the Treo 600. Any thoughts?
Does anyone know where I can get a pocket briefcase (levenger or equivalent) that holds 3x5 cards .... in the UK!
I am reading the book "Take BackYour Life" whichwas recommended byGTD to implement Outlook and GTD. There is discussion in the book on outling projects w/ due dates and using Excell or some kind of format to measure the progress. They call it Metrics. Does anyone have any suggestions on Outlining...
This is getting annoying and I'm hoping some folks here may have a solution.
I'm running Outlook 2003 on both my home and work computers. I'm using a Pocket PC with ActiveSync hooked to both computers.
Let's say I create a category on the work computer called TEST. That category is displayed...
