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:

There have been other threads on this topic, but I think it's worth starting a new one to get up-to-date feedback from those who might have experience in this area.
Lately there have been some good articles on text retrieval software such as X1, Ask Sam, etc. LookOut seems to have a following...
Like many of you, I use my PDA to handle quick e-mail and calendar reference when I am mobile and my laptop is otherwise inaccessible. Having my e-mail and calendar updates wirelessly pushed to me has been invaluable. I agree with David, that processing email is usually best done at the computer,...
I've been lurking for awhile and I thought it'd be wrong of me not to share this. I just happen to be in the same situation as this 'JojoLinkyBob' person.
Mentally replace all instances of 'To-Do List' with 'Next Action List'
I'm using a Windows PC.
I have a number of different files located in different places that I would like to back up on a daily basis. Not doing a full back up of my machine everyday, but at least making a copy of key files to an external hard disk. For example some Outlook .pst files, a...
I'm working in an office preparing some workshops for employees to become more productive with lotus notes. I've been trying to replicate what I do on outlook 2003 on the system here and have come across a couple of problems so would love to see if anyone has a workaround.
I'm so used to...
I mentioned this is another thread but thought a more general post was also appropriate.
If you've not looked at the new addition to the Microsoft Office Suite, One Note, you may want to (there is a trial version included in most upgrade packages of Microsoft Office).
after reading in this forum i decided to download the demo of Pocket Informant. Before paying for it, i want to know how i can use it GTD like.
Does someone use Pocket Informant (Pocket PC) for organisation "GTD like", and can you tell me how?
Greetings from Germany
Hi All. I had attempted to write a web based PIM based on GTD about a year ago...I got pretty far with the project, but life got in the way and it fell off track (if anybody is interested in taking a look at it I can send you the link, it is does much of what my stand alone app will do). The...
Has anyone created an Access database for getting things done? I don't have Outlook at work so I am trying to create a workaround in Access.
you might want to read my new post on this topic (see link below). In this article I explain why I bought a tablet and how it is helping me be more productive.
Good day. There are many things I have learned from reading books and articles written by David Allen and the GTD staff, but the one thing that has made the greatest impact of all is filing. I had a LARGE box filled with papers of all kinds; photos, recipes, articles to read, grade reports, pay...
My assistant and I are both on a exchange server and are using outlook 2003.
She goes through my email, deleted the junk, and replies for me to the ones that donít really need my time (like Jim, pls send me Billís number).
She can see my whole mailbox in her folder list. Tasks, inbox,...
I just blogged about my synthesis of the GTD and Franklin systems. If you're a former user of FranklinCovey and still miss some of the features, this post may help you.
can someone tell me if the shadow desktop version is as good as the palm version - i can inly find old demos. I use the desktop a lot - so whats better?
I am a bit of a newbie here -- I purchased and installed the Outlook Instructions and created the GTD templates myself. I'm extremely happy and proud of where it is taking me.
Question -- When I go to print out my task list, which includes my Project Categorie tasks, my notes (in which...
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...
I'm not sure this is an "on topic" topic, but I've searched everywhere and been unable to come up with an answer. It does affect my use of the tools that I use to implement GtD. It is a "mechanics" question rather than a "process" question.
I've recently started linking the NAs I...
The GTD is going slow, but my new to me, old Palm, is making it much easier for me to capture all the things I need to do & sort thru.
On to my actual question....I'm starting a new job tomorrow and by the end of the month I anticipate purchasing a new laptop which I will be using for both...
What kind of calendar works best with GTD? I'm so used to needing lots of room for to-do lists and I suppose I don't really need it using this method. What works best for most of you?
