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'm looking for a rolling cart for reference files. I thought I had a good, solid Rubbermaid model identified, but when it arrived, it was pretty much a cheap plastic "Eldon" brand cart. Turns out Eldon is owned by Rubbermaid and the product was not quite as advertised in terms of...
Does anyone know how to turn off the sounds in the DA GTD outlook add-in? It seems like it would be simple, but I can't figure it out. Thank you.
Can anybody point me to a simple (software) solution for storing and indexing quotations?
I regularly preserve interesting quotes in my reading and either in my writing or public speaking, I would like to draw up sub-sets of my quotations list according to a keyword or phrase. I can't believe I'm...
A lot of the reference material that I keep are technical papers on various topics. Most of these are now available in electronic form (pdf) so I've been thinking of chucking the paper files (which are kind of a pain to keep up with) and going to some sort of electronic filing systems.
Is there an inherent connectivity between these two softwares?
A friend who is even less SW savy then me wants to know if you can readily take a contact in his access database and schedule appointments in outlook, right from the database?
can you do this?
I posted this previously on the other forum; probably more appropriate here...
I want to implement a system where my Next Actions are rows in a relational database, one that I can carry around in my Treo 600.
Fields will be: Action, Context, Project, ActionDate, etc.
At least three...
I just got a Palm Tungsten E and am keen to start using it for my GTD lists, which currently live as plain text files on my laptop.
During the day I'll mostly be editing my GTD lists on my laptop, which I use for work. When I go home at night or go out for lunch, I'd like to be using...
I, like many, continue to struggle with some aspects of GTD. I love what it has done so far but need to continue working towards my "black belt".
I would like some opinions on the following -- I currently use a Brother P1750 labeler but get "stuck" on making labels. It is an extra...
I'm using the Tungsten E and like it. I sync to Palm Desktop for my tasks which is great - very simple and a lot less over-engineered than Outlook.
However, I want to sync just my Outlook calendar to the tungsten.
Can I select just to sync the Outlook calendar from outlook, and everything else...
Probably looking at upgrading my Palm & my wife's some time in the next few months. We've both got M-series models and will probably go with Zire 31s or Tungsten Es (unless we move to Dell Axims instead of Palm). Half or more of the reviews on the 31 or the T/E at Amazon report severe problems...
I am thinking of upgrading my much loved Handspring Visor Edge for one of the new Palm Zire 72's. If you have one already, I'd love to know what you think of it.
Does anyone know if there is a place I can purcahse the Getting Things Done Fast CD set used. Or is anyone on these boards interested in selling it to me.
Iíve done a search of scanning in documents and the results that I found are here, here, here, here, and here.
So what I gather from these links are:
1. Scan at 150 dpi because itís a good mix between file size & print quality
2. There was some question as to the file format, but Coz...
I just discovered, to my great distress, that there appears to be a size limit on Palm Memos. Has anyone figured out a way around this? It does not appear to be a memory issue -- I can still add onto other memos, but I can't make the memo that I'm working on any longer. Any suggestions would be...
Do any mac users have advice on how to setup a GTD system using nothing but the Vanilla prorams included with OS-X?
Mail, iCal etc - how do you use them?
I just saw a review of this book in the latest issue of Entrepreneur magazine.

my probably most important inbox at work is my Outlook inbox :wink:. I wrote the following VBA routines to quickly generate an next action task from a mail or a waiting item.
The code asumes that you have two folders called "@Action" and "@Waiting" within your inbox where you...
I'm working on implementing the "outlook" tips from the "Implementing Workflow Processing" paper. However, I'm trying to implement them in Entourage X on my mac. I can create new categories and create categorized tasks. I can easily add notes to the tasks but the notes don't show up in the task...
This is driving me crazy - whenever I set up adjacent appointments in Outlook, they display as overlapping in my week view calendar. It seems that Outlook automatically adds some kind of buffer to each appointment and I can't figure out how to disable that. Does anyone know? Thank you,
During my very recent vacation our agency switched from Palm to IPAQ h2200 series. I am not the best tech guy and our automation (IT) department is critically short of help and expertise, especially when it comes to using the IPAQ to the fullest for GTD. I was able to print all my lists...
