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 just converted from the Palm OS to Pocket PC and I use the GTD add-in with Outlook.
I'd love to hear suggestions from anyone using this combination. I am particularly trying to grapple with the fact that the GTD add-in "Actions" and associations with Projects don't translate to the handheld,...
This may be a dumb question, but do you think there are any personal productivity advantages between upgrading to Windows XP vs. Windows 2000? I have a PC running on Wondows 98 and am thinking about upgrading but am deterred by the possibility of installation glitches and mucho headaches for very...
Is anyone using just a Palm handheld to manage projects and next actions - no Outlook - no Palm Desktop, etc?
I've been considering doing this (sick of Outlook and want to feel less deskbound) and wonder if anyone could share their experience in how they handle input - project management - email...
I am interested in knowing which PDA David Allen now uses, and which software he uses with it.
As DA reccomends I only put items that must absolutely be done on a specific date on my Calendar. I would appreciate some suggestions on how I can be reminded of very important items that must be done in the very near future, but not date specific, so that they are not lost in my long category...
Hello to all!!
Does any one know how to change or add fields to the 'Form' View of contacts (the one after doble clicking on a card showing General, Details, Activities, Certificates, All Fields. It seems like adding/changing filds in the 'Custom View' does not make a difference
I have a bit of a neophyte Outlook question for the group. I recently purchased Keysuite to address my GTD needs. As a result, I have had to re-learn as my primary GTD software. Currently, I have many Outlook contacts who have a business fax number listed. Unfortunately, Outlook appears to convert...
:roll: How do YOU check off Daily Events & Appointments as completed? In OUTLOOK there is a Completed check box when the Event/Appointment is opened but in the Calendar View there is no evidence of this.
I have taken the liberty of putting a small 'x' in front of the Subject for that event.
I am a "newbee" to the GTD program and I am trying to integrate it into my Palm Pilot (Sony Clie T615 color).
I really need a simple ToDo list application that allows for sub-ToDos (parent/child funtioning), and repeatable ToDos. I have some projects that I perform regularly, and I have to...
Any thoughts on this new device?
I have recently had a shift in my job requiring me to spend most of my a day in a high school counseling kids and while still maintaining an office in the agency i am employed at (conveniently located acroos the street from the school). I am struggling with the constant "back and forth" and...
Please bear with me on a stupid question. OK - DA recommends a 1/3 cut 2-ply top file folder and I couldn't find this anywhere - does he mean just the plain manila 1/3 cut 2-ply TAB file folder?
The shortcut to categorize a note that David gives - <Alt-SPACE>i does not work in Outlook 2002 (with Windows XP). Does anyone know an alternative to using the mouse for this?
I currently use an IBM branded Palm V with 2MB of memory. I use a very simple implementation of GTD using the built-in Palm apps (synced with Microsoft Outlook) much as DA describes in one of his "tips" articles on using the Palm. I have more than sufficient memory for this purpose.
I am lured...
After Bill's suggestion I finally took the plunge and have been trialling powermarks for the last day and it's unbelievable. I'm getting close to setting up my reference filing system inside pm as well - but am really nervous about it.... will post my concerns in another message later on...
I recently loaded Datebk5 on my palm m515 and really like it. Is there a version of Datebk5 for the Palm Desktop application as well, or do you have to use the default Date Book application on the desktop?
Thanks for any input
Can anyone summarize the pros and cons of each as a desktop GTD tool?
I use a Palm, and have happily used the Palm Desktop for my GTD system for the past 18-24 months. I just took a new position in a more techno-oriented company, and while I can certainly still function w/ Palm Desktop, there...
I was fortunate to find a nice leather notetaker wallet while on vacation. Only problem is that it did not come with a pen. "regular" pen is too long and sticks out of the wallet.
Anyone know of skinny, short pen that i might find for use with the wallet?
Anyone have any experience with a Brother PT-1500 labelmaker. It connects to the PC.
I have been a loyal Palm user since 1999 and now have an i705.
However, I have recently started in an office where we are in a "lock down" environment and I can't add any downloads to my individual pc. This is an issue because they do not have the latest Chapura and we use Outlook. As a...
