i am confused with tools to use for GTD now. I have been using outlook but have just purchased a palm and fancy moving to shadow or bonsai
my question is:
can i use shadow or bonsai alone to implement GTD or will i still need outlook in some way?
thanks guys :roll:
I wanted to recommend an incredible product - an outlook add-in called PocketThinker (www.pockethinker.com). It's the outliner that should have been built into windows, and is becoming invaluable to me as part of my getting things done regime.
Note: other than...
I was under the impression that all actions that you spec out when you create a project should go in the notes section of the project item in Outlook.
However, according to the GTD Outlook Add-In manual...
So if it doesn't go there, where does it go (they aren't exactly NEXT...
I have been using the trial version of Quickbooks Customer Manager. It is a version 1 product and there are several limitations to it including lack of category association with todos. Otherwise this could be adapted for GTD on a desktop. I liked many of the features. Atleast I know what is it I...
I have switched some times between paper based system Time/System (Design), Filofax Professional System and Palm, Ipaq. Because this item about from wich system you get the best result pops up from time to time I think it would be intresting to hear more experince from what is best. Now many will...
I am using outlook (with the contacts as projects method), I want to move to a PDA as well. Can someone help?
Will a palm system sync exactly with outlook e..g will it transfer all the categories and contacts as projects on to the palm
I have set up the projects as contacts methods of bill kratz (wonderful) BUT anyone know a way to see which projects have a n/a defined as an activity in table view of all projects?
I guess this falls under "gear." The wallet DA Co is selling looks great but before it was available (unless I just hadn't scrolled down far enough) I was listening to David's live CD and heard him talk about the wallet/notepad thingy. The hunt was on because I knew I needed that pen and pad with...
I've been advised that the GTD methodology does not work well with ACT! calendar and task functions, and that those using Act! with Outlook while doing GTD have found that they basically use Act! for it's contact and project history functions.
The set-up that I'd like to accomplish is:
Does anyone use the T-Mobile Handheld PC for viewing tasks by category vis the GTD approach? I am returning my new Blackberry since it does not do this. Please help!
A quick & simple question I hope
I currently use FranklinCovey PlanPlus v1.0.5 annd have downloaded the GTD add-in trial. With the tasks I have alrewady on my PC (& sync'ed to my Palm m500) - will they transfer OK to the GTD add-in if I uninstall PlanPlus? I know I'll need to...
Has anyone been able to use a Blackberry and map the Outlook tasks viewed by Category as David Allen recommends? After sync'ing my new Blackberry 7510 to the laptop, I get all the tasks but can only sort by subject, status, etc. Any help would be much appreciated.
I recently got a filing cabinet second hand (I'm on a budget), and it's quite good, four-drawer, does the job.
Then, alas, I read the chapter in the book about filing, and noticed the bit about the metal dividers (follower blocks, I gather they are called).
My cabinet has none, and I...
I've just posted a review on my blog of a very cool freeware tool that lets you copy or move any file or folder on your system or network with two mouse clicks! It's called FileTargets. If you prefer, here's a direct link to the software. Well worth checking out.
I'm planning to reformat my hard drive as it is such a mess and the frequency of the crashes that are happening recently.
So I'll have a nice clean machine. Does anyone have any hints or tips how I should organise this nice clean drive with all my files.
This is a free, handy little menu bar calendar I have been using for some time now:
There is a new version out and it now has iCal support! Just click on the date and it brings up that day in iCal. It also shows the date in the menu bar (you can even...
Just curious if there are any palm users that find it useful to print their hard landscapes and if so, what are you using?
I am the owner of a brand new shiny (okay, it's not that shiny, more rubbery - but very nice) Zire 72. This is a big upgrade for me from a monochrome Palm m125. I love practically everything about it - the high-res color (perfect for these 40-something eyes), the built-in 1.2 mp camera, the voice...
Sorry if this is a little off-topic but my blog was selected as Feedster's "Feed of the Day" today!
I think it's pretty cool, especially since I've only been at it for a few months.
Thanks for letting me crow a little :wink:
I am in the implementation face of GTD, I have some techie questions.
KeySuite 2.4 and the GTD add-in will it allow me to synch projects and project tasks? I am using Palm T3. I am getting ready to trial both programs, but wanted to get some of these cleared up before I take...
