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 use mac's and Omnifocus as my trusted system. I like the power and flexibility of OF, it really provides me with a complete trusted system from capturing, processing, to switching contexts as actions progress, and finally it's review feature for the weekly review.
I've been talking with some...
I am very close to purchasing the Coordinator. I am just so sick of Outlook...
Anyways, I'm curious about how contexts are laid out with the coordinator. It seems to me that there is just an "Action" tab. Does someone just write @home on the top of one of the sheets, @office on...
I just got a palm centrino with the OS system and i love it. I dont know whats out there besides what comes with the palm. Im convinced I can find something more effective for GTD on the palm then using the standard "tasks" that it comes with. Here's some stuff im looking for.
-not web based,...
Hi, I released a new product (http://www.WindowTabs.com/outlook.html) a few months ago. I don't use GTD but several of my customers do, they like WindowTabs because it helps them organize all their open Outlook email windows and group email windows based on the projects they are working on.
I use Outlook 2007 at work but am not licensed for OneNote. It is so tightly integrated into our company-wide environment that I simply can't get away from it. How can I best implement GTD into Outlook. What tools are the best for this?
When I bought my new Nokia E71 last week I was very disappointed with the calendar and task functionality. Since then I have tried and fallen in love with an excellent piece of software from SBSH Software.
It costs $19,95 and replaces the...
I have ordered many things from the David Allen Company--file folders, ticklers, jotters, etc.--and have always been impressed with the quality of their products.
The binder for the new GTD coordinator is cheap, cheap, cheap. Now I am sure there will be an "upgrade path" for a...
I think I'm going to take DA's suggestions and get a voice recorder; I can see how handy it would be to have one.
Ideally, I'd like one that I can connect to my PC and copy my voice recordings right to my PC as .wav files (or any other audio format, it really doesn't matter).
What Mind Mapping software do you prefer and why? I'd like to start using one.
Are there any improved calendars for Itouch/Iphone? I'll be switching from a palm PDA and am used to DateBk5.
New to the forum. I have started using Outlook 2007 which I like. I noticed you can use the GTD add-on on a trial basis. Can anyone tell me how long the trial period lasts?
I want to do GTD on iphone, but I don't want it web based because if I go to an area where I can't get the web, I'm stuck.
Are there any nonweb based ways to do GTD on iPhone?
I recently acquired a rather nice old filing cabinet. Looks vaguely military but it's nice and deep, has exceptionally robust runners and 4 drawers not 3 so it should actually allow me to finally consolidate all of my exciting (!) assortment of storage places.
I just wanted to throw out a post seeing how people use their traveling file folders. Best practices etc? I use them everyday coming and going from work, but lately, I have been wanting to try to trim down "overhead" on my system by reducing how much stuff I carry. Thoughts?

I've recently developed a new Outlook plug-in that GTD people should find advantageous.
The plug-in provides an overview to all the emails, attachments, files and contacts that relate to projects you are working on. It is an easy to use, one-stop shopping interface so that you don't have...
I'm looking for a web-based task management program and am realizing there are almost too many choices.
Since many of you have experience with various programs, I like to hear your suggestions.
Here is my list of must haves:
The ability to assign multiple categories to a task - at least 2...
When you compose a new message in Gmail, there is no option to apply a label to the message until after it has been sent. If you are using a "Waiting For" label in gmail and would like to apply the label to an email you have just sent, you do not have to go to the Sent folder to label it...
I would like to announce the availability of our new iPhone app suitable for the GTD method. The app is called actions and you can find it at http://ghostparksoftware.com
With so many iPhone to-do lists, what is the need for another one? Well, some things set Actions apart from the rest:
