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:

For those of you who are road warriors, either doing a lot of traveling for work or working a lot when you travel, what are the things you won't leave home without, beyound the obvious?
I know for me, beyond the obvious of the laptop, Palm, and phone set of items, the things I wouldn't leave...
Just wanted to pass along an Outlook tip that has been working very well for me. I know David wants us to work from "Email empty" inbox. But I found that just because I took care of an emai, I could not be assured that I would need it for later reference.
So I created a folder in Outlook...
How does Outlook 2003 work with the GTD software. Any issues, does it compliment each other?
OK, please pardon my rank beginner clueless question(s) concerning synchronizing all my elctronic media stuff. I have the following:
Windows 98 OS
Outlook 2000+GTD add-in
I have my Palm set up basically the way David oulines in his book, and of course my Outlook set up as per the...
I'm looking to turn my two gadgets into one, by getting a PDA phone.
Does anyone have suggestions for the best all-around. By that I mean all things considered ... price, usability, battery life, etc. I use both my phone and PDA a lot every day, so it needs to be a good marriage of the two.
I am relatively new to the GTD methodology. I, somewhat unfortunately, am forced to use Lotus Notes at work. I sync to my palm from Notes using Easy Sync which is good. I have been syncing to my Palm Desktop software at home. I absolutely love the Palm for GTD.
I am in the process of sending out...
I'm looking at getting rid of my green file hangers and just going with the mania folders, which makes sense. What is the name and where to get a device that holds the folders up straight when the drawer is less than full?
Thank you and Happy New Year!!
How does the GTD software integrate with the Palm?
I really like the newest version of the GTD software, but I would like to know how it integrates with the Palm. I'm a T3 user.
I have finally decided to switch to outlook for synchronization. Can i get some ideas on the best software to use and if anyone has had luck synching one computer with outlook and another with palm desktop.
Is anyone using the new table pc? Are you finding it effective the the GTD methodology?
I also use ShadowPlan, but I need to better utilize the combination of SP and DB5. I have a lot of recurring events in DateBK5 but use ShadowPlan as an ouliner for projects and then transfer Next Actions using ShadowLink into Datebk5
I am thinking about blocking out a couple hours on a weekend and calling it 'clean house' just to get the routine tasks done and over with. Currently I have a lot of repeating next actions in my @home action list. I try to do one or two a day, but that doesn't always work and I end up with a long...
I am new :( to the GTD approach and I bought the GTD Outlook Add-In. Yesterday, I purchased a Tungsten 3. When I Hot Synced to the T3, my Projects show up in the T3's Tasks under the Projects Category. In Outlook, Projects are just listed in the regular Outlook Tasks field. My Next Action...
I'm working on a new action system for mobile devices, and the Sony, while higher priced than most PDAs, looks like the Cadillac model in terms of features. I've not been to town to see one yet, so I thought I would ask here first.
I'm specifically looking for experiences using Bluetooth to...
Anyone using the new palm OS5 software?
I just got a new Sony TJ35 and it looks pretty good so far, but it seems I remember someone saying they referred 4.1.
Just curious if there are any land mines....
After years of 'voluntary simplicity' (using Palm Desktop and Eudora), I am trying to get to grips with Outlook 2002. It has enough features and integration of all the obvious stuff that it appears to be worthwhile, despite the potential for distraction.
Most importantly, I will possibly be...
I purchased a Palm IIIc a while ago after reading David Allen's recoomending it as his tool of choice. It's been a great tool for me and the color is a great feature to have. Recently, the screen has been blinking and I'm thinking this might develop into a greater problem. I called Palm to inquire...
Does anyone know what particular model Brother P-Touch Labeler DA recommends, if any, and why?
Do any of you have your own recommendations on a labeler, or good/bad experiences you could report on specific manufacturers/models?
Thanks for any input - I want to get a labeler soon, but want to...
I am using a Dell pocket PC, although it seems most are talking about Palm based systems.
Are there any pocket PC users out there who have experience implementing this system on there handheld?
