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 had to add "in the light of GTD" otherwise the title would sound off-topic :)
Just was reading a new review of Pre Plus and it reminded me of a question that is probably pretty basic but I want to make sure I am not misunderstanding.
It mentions the amount of Flash memory on the Pre...
Started to GTD a few month ago using paper just to get a feel if this was a method for me. It was !
Didn't follow the recommendation to make a complete core dump of my brain and all my information sources into "the system" immediately but
instead started slowly. After some time the...
Some things need to be done on a specific day, but not a specific time during the day.
How do I put this on the Outlook Calendar?
At the moment, all I can do is use the 'All Day Events'.
Does anyone in the UK know of a supplier of really good manilla folders?
I know any folder will do but I seem obsessed with finding just the right one! I'm after really thick folders with rounded edges & tabbed. I can only find really thin ones. I've tried Rymans, Staples, Smiths - no luck.
I am new to GTD, new to Mac and not really IT savvy. Any advice how to get started? (My hope is that finding the right GTD software would help me get some order into my stuff, since I am also in the process of starting my own business)
So far, my experience is:
Mac: 1 day of exploring
Hey all, there really aren't many good resources out there that provide an objective list and comparison of all the available GTD tools, so I'm working with a few key people to put that together in a way that will allow new and veteran GTDers alike quickly and easily identify what apps or tools...
Is anyone using OneNote as the core for their GTD management? It seems like it should work almost perfectly, particularly because of the flags and flag summary features-- but I'm still having a hard time with the details.
Should I create sections (or pages in a section) for the contexts or only...
Hi there GTDers,
i discovered today the Application "Easy Task Manager" by orionbelt.com.
It isn't the GTD app with the best look & feel, but it has a Windows, Mac, iPhone and Web Client - wouldn't be aware of any other app that cheap (19$) that offers that.
Unfortunately the Web Sync isn't...
what's up with the site... i'm getting only three posts from 9/09
Hello everyone. I have a couple dozen history books (for research purposes). Many subjects are covered in them, and I would like to use a software that could, say, use a tag like WW2 and when I click it, see a pre-made list of books and pages that cover that subject.
I thought about using a...
why do you record the computer screen?
"How to show my gameplay to my friends?", "Can I use some program to record my Webcam chat?" When you have problems of these, you may need a tool to capture your computer screen activity and save it to a video file.
Besides the case we mention above, you...
I just started GTDing. i have a mac and an ipod touch. I am trying to figure out what app to buy. I need to be able to use the date on my touch when offline. i am looking for a program that:
1. works well w/gtd;
2. easy to use; not too much getting up to speed time.
3. will have...
I am a GTD practitioner running a small software development firm. I have implemented GTD in Outlook. I need to acquire a CRM for my business- either web based or server based. I am interested in any feedback from folks who use a CRM and practice GTD with it. Are there some more aligned with...
I had my Outlook (2003) set up (manually) as described in Getting Things Done Outlook and I was happy with that set-up + having tasks for selected days appearing in task pad when I had a look at my calendar.
Then I had to update to Outlook to 2007 and I can't find in it's To Do list the...
I've been reviewing DA's articles, and in one of these where he explains his filing system, he recommends getting a filing cabinet that has metal sliding supports. While purging my files and dismantling my rather-disorganized filing system that is dependent on my ancient file cabinet with metal...
I'm guessing I'm not the only person thinking about buying the forthcoming Palm Pre.
The rumor is that the phone will not sync directly with PCs, but rather use cloud computing.
So the question is how do you do GTD on the Pre if one's work life involves Outlook?
As a recent switcher to the mac platform(2nd time actually), I spent some time investigating the best way to implement my digital GTD system.
Having found what I think it is for me a perfect match, I wrote a short article on how to use this wonderful app called The Hit List.
I just started keeping my tasks in Outlook in the last couple of months. I am wondering, is there a way to move some tasks to a different pst file? I know with emails you can just set up the file and drag the emails to it, but I'm not sure how the tasks work.
I would like to be able to exclude...
My Outlook is running real slow. I think I know the problem. My archive.pst file is 1,775697KB. the problem is that I really need the archive data (I use on a daily basis) I move all my e-mail to archive folders and use the data contained all the time. Is there any way I can keep these or do I...
