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 tried ActionComplete which was good but not close enough to GTD for me. As far as I could tell there was no quick way to see actions based on context. You could setup a filter but it was too cumbersome for me.
I just started using Shuffle (http://code.google.com/p/android-shuffle/) and I...
I know there are a dozen threads about the "best" software/app for GTD. I uncovered a new-ish one tonight that looks to have a lot of promise. Since it hasn't been mentioned here much before, I thought it worth bringing to your attention.
It's a "whiteboard with super powers". You create a board...
I've just upgraded to outlook 2010, and since the upgrade every time I reboot my laptop my custom categories disappear and are replaced by the "red / green / blue" default categories. It looks like the changes I'm making to the master list of categories are not being saved (somehow).
"Could not complete the operation. One or more parameter values are not valid."
This is the error message I get when I try to save a new task. I've rebooted but I'm still getting the message. One of cohorts which has the GTD add-on on the same network is not running into this problem. Any...
I've been looking around for something to use for my system using Windows 8. I have a laptop and tablet, as well as a computer at work, and would like to keep lists in sync across devices. But I'd prefer a dedicated app vs. a website if possible.
I've tried going through the store and looking...
Online or desktop or app.
I'm considering to buy Toodledo but I find the subtasks feature a bit unclear and hard to use.
So I hope someone could help me understand what is the best practice when you have many projects and at some point you want to make some of them inactive(along with all their sub-tasks).
I figured I would write about my current setup with GTD. The reason is to maybe help others with digital workflow issues, get feedback where my system might be lacking or could be improved.
My desired outcome was to be entirely digital with my workflow. First order of business was to then...
Does anyone have any experience with the Walker iPhone app? I'm inexperienced at GTD but I'm making an attempt. Walker appears (and claims) to be based in the GTD concepts, but I'm having some trouble getting things from the inbox to the right places inside the nested lists. This is a fairly new...
Just wondering how to correctly use the start date feature in Omnifocus. Is it more like this next action 'could' start, or this project is starting on this monday cause its due friday ?
Just thought I would point out that the new gMail iOS app has a wonderful feature for adherents of GTD--
When your inbox is truly empty, it shows you a smiling sun and the message:
"You have no mail. Please enjoy your day!"
Sometimes it's the little encouragements that matter.
I am using OSX reminders. Can any advise me on the best way to set this up for GTD?
I use it for my personal GTD. I have a different system for work.
Hello! I would like some Application advice. I have been using Google Tasks for my task list and it has been functional but I am sure there is a better solution. It doesn't need to handle projects, nested hierarchies, due dates, priorities or calendar integration. What I do need more than...
Hello everyone! I've been using GTD for several years now but am new to the forum. I had been using Palm/MS-Outlook software for some time. I switched over to iPhone back in January 2011 and I love the iPhone.
I've been using Pocket Informant (PI) as my primary system, linking with MS-Outlook...
I do use omnifoucs, and like the little linear calendar that it provides. I do like that 'different' data visualization. Just wondering if anyone found a better calendar app ?
So I'm new to the GTD philosophy. But after reading David's book, I can see so much I agree with and am convinced that once applied the ideas are going to improve my life.
However I need to get started!
I have bought all the physical tools (Bisley Filing cabinet arriving this...
I'm currently adapting the GTD Outlook 2010 method and I always move emails to Tasks list in one coordinated set of lists instead of spread into two different functional places in Outlook.
Since I've moved all my emails to Tasks and have categorlizied to @Action, @Waitng for, etc... Is it...
On my website I want to add a calendar that my clients can make appointment on. I also have an iphone that I want to be able to see those appointments and make appointments on. Is there any online calendars you would suggest?
Hey i just decided that along with my high tech digital tools ie omnifocus i wanted to take it to the next level. Using omnifocus is great but its not really designed for filing and such. My question is how do i set up a GTD filing system in evernote? What are some good practices that could help me...
