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:

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...
I've recently gotten into the GTD methodology after hearing David speak at my school. I've been using Things on both my MacBook and iPhone, and it works great. I'm looking to be able to sync notes between my laptop and iPhone though for packing lists, idea lists, etc. that don't fit...
I'm having big problems with Windows Mobile and need either a solution or suggestions for some type of work around.
I'm using Outlook for my calendar and tasks.
I also have a Motorola Q9c, which runs Windows Mobile 6.1
I sync to both a desktop (Vista) and a laptop (XP Pro)...
Rats! I just found out that the new Palm Pre does not have a voice recorder. So that rules out that one. I want a Palm Treo phone with Palm OS (700p, 755p), but I am open to other phones. The main requirements are:
1-Must be able to have tasks in some way so that I can do GTD....
Can anyone tell me if there are any issues using it on multiple PC's with Exchange?
Is there anyone with this idea to synch the two Outlooks at home and at office?
Null - I deleted the text because the topic doesn't apply to me now.
I can see that our product Agenda At Once is pointed out on this forum long time ago. In the meantime we have released updated version that implements some of shortcomings mentioned here.
As first version was out just few months after book is published (AFAIK), AAO was not originally...
Hello GTD folks,
thanks a lot for everyone who participated in our beta test of NextAction! 3.0. It was very successful and you sent us so much feedback that we have enough to do for the next months to improve NextAction! even more for a stream lined GTD application for BlackBerry Wireless...
I recently got the GTD Coordinator (the smaller one), and am looking forward to incorporating it into my GTD-ing. But I use iCal and and iPhone for my calendar. I've taken the calendar pages out of the Coordinator, and I'd like to print a month or two of my iCal calendar to carry as a "hard copy"...
I will start by saying that I have not read Davids book yet on GTD. I have it ordered though and will be here soon.I cant wait to read it.I have read all kinds of things though on the web about GTD and Mr.Allen and I think his ideas will work for me.I do have a worry though about using paper or...
We have been searching a reliable system for a long time. As a result, over the last 2 months I have read about a dozen Time Management books.
GTD's system is by far the most comprehensive and practical of all. I have already read it several times and bought copies to colleagues and...
I can't figure this out. I have located the Tasks of my Treo, but it looks like it is going to make one big master list of tasks.
1-How do you differentiate Next Actions them out into @Phone, @Home, @Computer? The manual doesn't help that much in this regard.
2-If I input all of...
For me the first stage was getting a handle on my email at home so that I would have a slightly better sense of what I was dealing with at work. This has largely been accomplished with rules and a basic tagging structure for gmail. At least at home I think I now have a place where everything...
Something new from Palm to keep an eye on. It hasn't been released yet. Looks a bit like an iPhone with a slide out keyboard.
It runs a new Palm OS that seems heavily web / cloud based.
New GTD user here. I purchased Things for my iPod Touch and also my home Mac. It is working well for me for my personal activities. (http://culturedcode.com) However, at work I use a Windows PC and Outlook 2007. I don't use Outlook at all at home since I switched to Mac a year ago.
