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 use Google Calendar to heavily and have shared it with others. Is there any way to sync Nozbe Calendar with Google Calendar so that information added to either would be replicated?
Has anybody tried CompanionLink for Google?
There is a flaw in Windows Mobile that prevents smartphones, like the Motorola Q or anything else running WM 6.1, from syncing with both a XP and Vista PC.
So I need a plan B. CompanionLink seems like it might be a solution, but I wanted to hear...
Just got my hands on OneNote.
I've been using Evernote to capture my ideas, etc. and I really like it for this purpose, but it's just not very suitable for GTD - eg. I can't easily manage projects and keep track of things in it. It's really more for keeping reference material as it's...
I'm looking to purchase a filing cabinet and would like to follow David's recommendations on getting good high quality mechanics. I do not want lateral filing cabinets and I really want one that has the spacers so that the files will not fall over.
Just in case you weren't aware of Appigo's Todo, a simple task management tool for the iPhone, we wanted to make you aware of it. We're currently in the process of adding many more GTD-like features, but so far, we've been getting some great reviews on the App Store.
Rather than blasting users...
I've recently bought and read the GTD book and am very inspired and eager to start organizing all my obligations and thoughts into David Allens system. All computers around me, at work and at home, are pcs and I'm well accustomed to Outlook and it's calendar functions, but I'm ready to...
I just bought this sucker and I have to tell you it is LOUD! If getting up early is important to you and you don't mind waking up terrified every morning thinking a train crashed into your house; buy one of these. :mrgreen:
I'm looking at a suggestion.
Look at my practical example:
I need to train a new employee. As I did the same in the past, several times, I prepared a list of the things we have to do and the documents we have to print.
How could I save all the links to these documents in...
I have recently started using LeaderTask - A GTD orientated PIM.
Does anyone else use LeaderTask and if so what are your impressions?
Appologies if this question has been asked before, what are the better, free or low cost, GTD PIM that work offline?
is there any reminder site or app that will accept a specially formatted email to set the calendar item?
ALL LISTS (projects, next actions)
I have tried many things for calendaring and next actions on the iPhone. The best so far for me, seems to be the native Nozbe iPhone application for managing my next action and project lists. They do a fantastic job!
ALL TIME/DATE SENSITIVE with...
I'm considering moving our small firm off of a hosted Exchange/Outlook environment to Zimbra or Evolution on Linux (also hosted). I've played with Ubuntu enough for about 8 weeks to feel that we could make a go of this on our notebook/desktop machines. We're a tech firm, and are small enough, that...
Hi, I am about to set up a home office : )
My question is: Can anyone recommend a filing product? Does GTD recommend hanging files in filing drawers? Some times I need to take the files out of the cabinet to bring the documents to a meeting. That sounds very difficult to do with the metal hanging...
On this link, there is an explanation of how I designed my GTD system. Most of my system is paperless. The story of how it evolved is here.
Here's my situation:
1. I have a Palm M500 running 4.0, with some apps like Agendus and To-Do List; my cradle is at home on my PC
2. I like having a calendar printed out in a notebook (I like Day Timers) so I stopped using the Palm a couple years ago.
3. I make a lot of small...
can anyone recommend a program that will remember text and insert it when I need it?
i.e. instead of typing the same email reply over and over again, I can just type "@reply1" or some other similar command and it will enter the desired text
thanks for any help on this
I have recently changed to using Lotus Notes and I use Mindmanager 7 extensively. I am currently trying the Noteslinker for Mindmanager and also Mindplan which links into Lotus Notes.
Has anyone experience of Notelinker or Mindplan? Are there any pros and cons to either?
I've enjoyed reading through the archives, and people's questions and advice about PDAs and PIMs, for integration with GTD. However, I haven't seen any information that really fits my needs, hence this question.
The main thing I need is something that I can carry with me (or even wear!) that I...
I wanted to let the people in the GTD community know about our Palm OS software tool, TraxItAll (www.TraxItAll.com) because it gives you an easy way to track anything on a daily basis.
For example, GTDers could create a “Yes/No” track to record, Did I check my daily file today? You could also...
I always seem to have problems with file folder tabs being too close together when I have a bunch of manila folders without a lot of content. As a result labels and tabs get hidden -- which makes it hard to scan the drawer or even find a specific folder. I used to do straight-line filing with a...
