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 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.

What size In/Out/Pending boxes would you recommend? Letter or legal size? I use letter size folders & file cabinet. I only have a couple of items that are legal size, but I'm thinking that other "stuff" will be going in the In & Out boxes, so legal size may be the say to go. . . I'm wondering what...
could you please let we know if there is any projects in the company GTD system for the Android users that are growing faster than the other systems like ipad or blackberries.
Hi, forgive me if i'm missing something. I could not attend any of the seminars so I ordered THE GTDŽ SYSTEM STARTER KIT. However, after nearly a whole day of listening to 6 audio CDs I have yet to actually get anything done. They CDs were great to formulate a foundational understanding, but I was...
When working in a paper system you put new actions one after one. They are not sorted. For example, you made a call and put 'Smith 30/04 waiting for meeting confirmation'. And Smith will not go with other waiting for items for him. It means if I need to update something with him I need to go...
This is what happened on the market. I think it could therefore be great share which are the best tools and implement more the use of the "GTD enabled" logo.

I'm trying to hide non active tasks in Pocket Informant, for example if I want ring a friend in two weeks I want to only see that task after 2 weeks, not right now.
Also I want recurrent tasks to disapper until I am due to do them.
There may not be a way, which seems pretty poor for a task...
This application has just been released. It can be used for GTD and so on. What do you think about it
...and I need help on choosing a good GTD app for my iPod touch.
I fell off the wagon a few weeks ago, choosing to ignore my lists and go with the "flow" simply because I wasn't too busy, which was very surprising. I had time to read more than five thousand words worth of books this past weeks,...
Has anyone tried out Producteev? I created an account and started it play around with it, and adapting it to GTD seems to be very hard for me. I like the fact that I can sync Astrid with it on my Droid, but I can't even get a task to stay in the built in inbox folder! I'm curious how other...
Are there any GTD applications which have a support for checklists?
A "checklist" is a special type of a reference item what one can link to a task/action at the Processingstage. Structurally it could be just a list of the bullet points.
Later, at the Review and Do stage one may bring that...
Around 6 weeks ago I switched from using the iphone 3g to an android nexus one. Overall it has been a great move for me, particularly because it helps me to follow Gtd principles with greater ease.
First of all, as a gmail user, the android allows me to archive messages that aren't...

I am having a difficult time finding project planning/organizing software that is affordable. This is just what I will be using on a personal basis and I have no need for the corporate bells and whistles.
Mainly I am looking for something that has this:
