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'm a new Mac user and have purchased the Entourage document to help me get it set up for GTD. I read GTD quite a while ago, so maybe I'm just forgetting something basic.
I set up the categories as recommended and started adding Tasks. My question is, are all Tasks supposed to be...
Has anybody had experience syncing Outlook calendars on 2 PCs and Google Calendar?
Here's my setup:
Finally started implementing GTD mainly using my Blackberry with Outlook Tasks for my lists and defining my own Categories. A paper based system just isn't for me ;)
Here are all the items I currently have in my Tasks, as they appear in Outlook sorted by Category:
Category = In Basket
I take notes like a madman, and I listen to several speakers on several topics. I'd love to copy all my written notes into text that I can put into some sort of web-app so I can search and find a particular note quickly and easily.
The challenge is this - I want to be able to search by speaker...
Looks like Netcentrics is going to crank out long-awaited v3
Hope they make the date. Slipped from "June 2009" where it sat since beginning of year (maybe earlier). Looks good by the description.
Well....I used to just have a stack of index card lashed together with a binder clip and a generic calendar from hipster. Man, that worked well. I have an IPhone with Nozbe now. I can't stand the Nozbe calendar, plus, sometimes items end up 1 day too late or too soon. I love Nozbe, but get a...
I set up a GTD system for the first time last year using the Palm Desktop application, and have managed to get a pretty good working system going. The only problem is that I just don't use my handheld any more. I've had the handheld since 2003 (it's a Palm Tungsten E) - it still works okay, but...
Okay, help please! These are the features I am pretty sure I want in an iphone GTD app:
- ability to sync to pc or web
- repeating events
- reminders via SMS and/or email, but SMS would be preferred
I am currently on a trial period of Toodledo Pro on the web because many apps...
I have been lurking around this site for a long time, mostly just profiting from the inspiring posts of other users to get myself organized a little better. Now finally I discovered a thing myself worthy of a first post: it’s called the “Taschenbegleiter” (say 'tuh-shen-buh-gli-ter' ;) ) by...
I just saw a presentation of google wave - "What email would be like if it were invented today". Amazing stuff!
Still under development.
Wonder if any developer would consider creating APIs for GTD wave and task management.
Does anyone use a Wiki to organize their digital data?
I tried to use one as a GTD planner but it couldn't move fast enough (for my needs). However, I'm finding it's a great way to organize a lot of digital information because I can link to documents, websites, videos, etc., and also insert...
Ever since I started GTD I have never been happy with my trusted system, to the extent that I did not really trust it.
I finally have a vision of what I want that system to be, but I have not been able to make all the parts fit together, so I thought I would turn to all of you for suggestions.
I have a Palm Treo 680 and I'm glad of using it for my out-of-office GTD implementation.
I'm syncing with Microsoft Outlook but having frequently problems with it.
The problems are not with Hot Sync but with Outlook itself (maybe due to the server of my company).
I'm looking for another Desktop...
I wanted to create a new thread to let everyone know that I've updated our product. I've changed the user interface to make it more consistent with Outlook and I've added the ability to store tasks within a project.
The product turns Outlook into a Project Management Center. Information...
I own and operate a small information design consultancy and have been using GTD for about a year to optimize how I run my business and interact with clients. However, as our group has grown, I had identified a need for a company-wide project management tool. I would appreciate any thoughts on...
I've noticed a conspicuous absence of Palm Pre review for using "cloud-based" GTD options.
Any opinions on this device yet?
My contract with sprint happens to be up and I'm not sure if this device or an Iphone would be a better fit.
I presently use a WinMO device and todledo account....
As noted in earlier messages - Lookout is currently not available from their website due to the Microsoft acquisition. Any organized person out there have the latest version they might email out? I'll buy the person a beer in Miami or Denver/Boulder in exchange.
I'm new to this forum but have been looking for simple inexpensive tools to get started with GTD. I keep seeing reference to omnifocus. I did look at the app online but it seems awfully expensive for a list manager- the price is saw was $79- Is there a less expensive version of this that does...
I've tried toodledo, nozbe, tracks, and most recently vitalist and my life organized. All seem to fall short in one way or another. My primary objective is to have something that is accessible from anywhere on the web
I've just posted an overview of a very nice web-based project manangement tool called Basecamp. They offer an incredible amount of functionality in an easy-to-use application and you can sign up for a free one-project account. Pricing for the service is based on the number of projects you need to...
