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:

Iím dying for the new Tungsten T5 but my wife insists that Iím not allowed any new gadgets until I find an equally enticing one to get for her. Are there any women out there who can help me out? Men with tech-happy wives or girlfriends? I must have the Tungsten... What can I tempt her with?

I am have never used a palm before. A friend of mine gave me an old palm IIIc to use to see if I would like to venture into that world.

On pp. 100&#8211;101 of GTD, David A. suggests that you should get rid of hanging file folders and instead use "the movable metal plate" in the back of the file drawer.
What can I use if I have no such mechanism? A massive bookend? A spring-loaded something or other? Someone please post a link...
Attention GTD'ers who use PocketPC's: I have extracted and sorted the ratings for the 1025 freeware Pocket PC programs at freewareppc.com.

I have a question:
I just hired an assistant.
We will have our two separate laptops as office machines.
Using our sparate Outlooks 2003, is there a way to have the contact be a 'central place' which always has ALL of both our contacts in there??
I was thinking: use my palm...
Part of my system has always been keeping all of my passwords on my Palm. Having upgraded to a T3, I need to find a new password program. Does anyone have one that they love? Thanks for the recommendations.
Does anyone know when the GTD FAST CDs (unabridged) will be back in stock?
I had a brainstorm today when I was going over our organization's meeting calendar. We have 30 board members who have to manually input the paper meeting calendar that we give them into their planners. Most are high powered attorneys with limited time.
I am wondering if we could produce an...
At my place of work we use Novell Groupwise as our email and calendering software. My palm (Treo 180) device HotSynchs to this nicely. Would it also be possible to synchronise with Outlook on my PC at home and maintain the integrity of my data? I don't suppose that it would be a great problem if I...
Apologies if this has already been discussed; I did a search and didn't find anything exactly related.
In my office we are trying to centralize a tasking log, i.e. who was assigned what, due date, etc. I originally thought Outlook would be ideal, charging one person as the "list master" and...
I'm a long time Palm user, however, I'm thinking of moving over to the Pocket PC platform.
When I first considered Palm vs. Pocket PC (this was 4 years ago) there was a lot of talk about how Pocket PC would crash and often wipe out all the data.
And since I am a GTD user, not having my...
There's a blink-and-you'll-miss-it section in the GTD Fast seminar CDs where His Daveness mentions having a List category as one of his lists on the Palm: "It lets you create lists of lists -- then you can have an infinite number of lists." Has anyone implemented this approach?
I see the templates mentioned under the product listing, but I am not sure what they are exactly. Are they fill-in-the blanks type of things, checklists, or what? Thank you.
It's a freeware Windows utility called Push That Freakin' Button
(PTFB). Drag the PTFB finger over a button on any annoying dialog, and
it will automatically close it for you from now on.
Actually it is meant to work with standard Windows widgets, which
Firefox does not use. But the PTFB...

I just dropped some cash on PI and was wondering: can I GTD comfortably without dropping some more cash on ListPro? (I was a big fan of making lists -- action and non-action -- when my Palm was still alive).
Dang, a new Pocket PC has all these hidden $30 costs: $30 for a case, $30 for Pocket...
As you know, Blackberry users have been crippled by the lack of categories for GTD. I found some software linked to the Blackberrry site that appears to offer categories on the blackberry
