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 am currently an iPhone user and I am having trouble trying to start GTD because I would like to use Outlook on my iPhone. Does anyone have any suggestions? I found a solution that links contacts, tasks and notes with Companionlink but no email capability. Is there another smartphone that will do...
Hello, Im new in GTD and I´m looking for an APP to my phone that can work like David Allen his methodology. After having tried several APPs and online task managers system that can sync, I need to choose between 3 i liked.
GetItDoneapp is a very good app, easy to use, the web site sync with...
Based on the David Allen Co setup guide I made a BlackBerry theme that hides the notifications. I also added:
* TodayPlus feature for Calendar, Messages and SMS
* Shortcut for SMS (click $ key)
* Enlarged Clock & Date
* Put Tasks and memo on home screen

When it comes to Purpose, Vision, Goals, Responsibilities, Projects and Next Actions, I use "Achieve Planner". Does anybody else use this software? I find it gets really in depth, and has a good hierarchical structure that feels organic.
For the Runway I use Evernote (iPhone APP & Computer...
Is anyone using Personal Brain to organize their lists and projects. I heard about this product on a GTD podcast and downloaded the program for a 30 day free trial. I have since purchased the product and love it.
I'd like to compare notes with someone else who is using it in this way. Is...
I have been implementing the GTD system for around 18months to 2 years and one problem I have is that I keep missing calendar events.
I am using a mac and iphone with omnifocus and ical on both. I had added so many things to the calendar that it was beeping all the time with things like...
It is stunning how rapidly RIM (Blackberry) is disintegrating. The company was worth $80 billion three years ago. After Friday's bloodbath it is worth less than $15 billion. Some analysts are questioning its very survival. This may impact users in the future.
I'm just moving to Mac, and getting used to Outlook 2011. I'm struggling to organise my tasks as I did in Windows Outlook 2010. Anyone got a guide or any tips?
Okay first installment:
Am using NextAction! rather than PocketInformant now. PocketInformant seemed good for task management but NextAction allow view by context group which is better than just viewing tasks grouped by context. Changing context is very easy in NextAction!. The only gripe is...
Now that I am using the GTD addin with Outlook I am more tied to Outlook now. At present I'm using am old Palm Centro to sync with it but am looking forward to an upgrade in around six months.
I don't need to have actions by project on the smart phone as I don't have the linked actions to...
A friend of mine pointed out, when I was gripping about the weight of my planner, that I did not need to have the @home next action list in the planner I take every where. She said, if you are out and you need to capture a n/a for @home just put in on IN and then process @home.
I do 90% of...
I've been using Netcentrics (Outlook add-in) for a while and do appreciate the 'automation' aspect of it. Having said so, I'm stuck with what I believe is a restriction in file management.
Let me try to explain :
I have created a series of folders on my hard drive for Project...
Can anyone using the netcentric add-in for outlook comment? How does it compare to simply following the outlook configuration guide and manually setting up lists that way? Does it offer more functionality?
Hi all. I'm new to GTD (the book is called How to Get Things Done in Australia, for some special secret reason ;) ). It's been very easy to set up so far, but I have hit a hurdle with the -- what you might think would be very easy -- step of getting 1/3 cut manila folders. They do not appear to be...
Does seem a bit cumbersome at first! but I think the inventor is onto something
Cool tool for brain storming; think I'll order the 4x6" feet but have it pre-pealed
For some time I have been looking for a lightweight tool for capturing information while surfing the web (my work requires a lot of that) and saving it for later reading, maybe reference.
I tried Microsoft One Note, Evernote, various capture tools for Ubuntu Linux, but they...
I occasionally use an application called JCV Gantt Pro for managing projects which require significant amounts of time and effort over a period of weeks or months. (I first learned about it on these forums a few years ago.) It strikes a nice balance between power and simplicity; much simpler to...
I've been getting into GTD lately, and have been looking for a mobile solution that I can use from my Android phone, PC and on the web.
I've tried a few, and have settled on Action Complete Pro for web for now, is there anyone else using this? On the forums, there seems to be...
It has come to my attention that I don't have a nice way of tickling things. What I'd really like is a service that I can send an email to that will send the same email back to me after a specific amount of time.
This way if I get an email and I want to tickle, then I can forward it to this...
It used to be recommended by David and listed on the website. Now it is gone in favor of personal brain. What motivated this change? Is Personal brain a superior program?I have been using Mind Manager mainly for outlining and information organization around a topic.
