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:
Many have asked if they can help fight spam in this forum. In the bottom left corner of each and every post there is a little "Report Post" icon. You will need to be logged into the Forums to see this icon. It looks like this:

I posted an article yesterday about my favorite PowerPoint resources. If you want to beef up your presentations and have more impact, I think you will find the article helpful. Thanks.
This is a list of macros and forms I've gathered from the DavidCo and Netcentric forums - to the best of my knowledge they work with the GTD_Outlook addin except where noted. Screenshots of these would be nice (as well as some place to post them).

I've read in the books and also a lot on personal opinions that having a Labeler is a very handy too for GTD.
Can anyone elaborate why?
I don't use so many folder, and when I do, I just write what i need on the cover with a nice pen and handwriting ;)
Whats the great thing...
A quick question for those of you who use moleskines or other similar paper notebook "devices" to manage (part of) your gtd system:
How do you collect stuff and then clear it from the "device"?
Do you leave some blank sheets in the beginning to be used as inbox?
If yes, what do...
Does anyone know of any usable software for doing GTD on Windows Mobile 6 (WM6)? Even if it doesn't fully map to GTD concepts, just a good list tool that I can use to store multiple lists (for my next action lists etc). I'd prefer freeware if anyone knows of any.
I came across SmarterTasks but...
What are you using to capture ideas on the go? Everything seems either too big or too hard to use.
* Phones are painful to type on, including iPhone.
* Post-its are ok (I would prefer something even a bit smaller), but I haven't found any decent pens that fit the pocket - they're just too big...
I have been out of the loop, but I thought I read of a new iPhone app that make it easy to use Outlook 2007, including tasks, with an iPhone. Has anyone heard or about this app? I would really like to be able to sync the tasks. I use outlook with a hosted exchange.
Hi GTD followers and gurus!
I have list pro software on my PDA and it comes with a GTD template. I wasnt aware of what it was, till I read David's GTD book!
I tried to use its inbox for a few days, but felt it boring (I am kinda lazy guy :( ) Instead, I started taking notes in a pocket...
Hi, I have a drawer for file hangers (you can hang the both sides of the metal on it), is that the right size for file folders?
It looks too big, cause when I try to put the file folders (letter size) they fall flat on the drawer.
Do I need to hang the file folders on the file...
What sort of email spam protection do you use? What experience's of success do you have in getting rid of junk email (Outlook XP). Rules don't seem very effective. The crap I get is very irritating. :twisted: :evil:
I'm happy to announce Listmaker, a new iPhone app that synchronizes lists with the web. Listmaker is a minimalist list making app that synchronizes its lists to Toodledo for online access. Although Listmaker can be used as a simple to do list, it is not meant to be a replacement for your regular...
I really like the plugin. The only thing that I struggle with is how to handle projects.
I cannot move sub-projects between projects without HUGE hassle. Everything I do is project based. Sometimes 60 to 100 projects at a time.
I have come to the point of deciding if I should start using...
I've read many of the post relating as to WHY a label maker is an integral part of the GTD system and got some great tips/tricks on actual filing methods, and am planning on getting a new label maker.
I have a technical question now. I already have a lower priced label maker like this type and...
Anyone have any suggestions on time tracke/logr for Palm Centro that synchs with desktop and can yield printed reports? I am seeking program that is not over the air.
I know this was discussed on forum in past but I don't get anything when I use the search function.
Thanks in advance, Jamie
I've been trying to use OmniFocus to keep my lists, and one winner feature is how quite it is to type something into inbox - much faster than picking up pen and paper (which are always within reach anyway) or waiting to text editor to open inbox.txt file.
Anyway - predictably the lists went...
My beloved Palm Centro has stopped working. It remains black screen when I turn it on. I've tried all the manuals suggestions like taking the battery out and in. Also doing the same and while pressing the on button and scroll up button.
Also realised that the 1 yr warranty has just run out! ...
I'm more of a fan and believer than practitioner... That said, I'm committing myself to a 30 day commitment to committing to commit to GTD with Toodledo. Yeah, I'm really committing now.
If you want to see my notes, they are at...
Which program do you use and prefer, and why?
I'm going to try out both, just to have that said. I've searched the forums, read most of the threads concerning the programs and I know that MLO is an outliner and PI basically an advanced PIM software and both probably work best with a PC...
Some of you might recall I switched to a paper system a while back.
I'm still there! It seems to successfully get used rather than tricked out with the latest features, extensions, trying things out, etc.
Also the effort to enter things by hand makes me ensure its (a) really a commitment,...
I am looking for software that is similar to the Omni Focus for the iPhone that will work with my Verizon Blackberry Curve; can anyone recommend anything?
