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 love my mid-tech personal organizer.
It consists of an inexpensive 5.5" by 8" binder, with paper of the same dimensions. I have little tabs for each of my to-do buckets like "at computer" and "at electronics store", etc. and tabs for each month, and an insert for "today", and finally tabs for...
I want a very simple program that I can run from my system tray. Ideally, it would allow alarms and categorisation.
Any recommendations? Free would be even better!
Does anybody know how to delete categories from a smartphone using Windows Mobile?
I've been trying various productivity programs such as Extreme Agenda, Pocket Informant, etc and I cannot seem to delete any unused categories from my Motorola Q.
Here's the situation.
I use Palm KeySuite at for my Home/Personal actions. I sync this at home with Outlook. It works just wonderful!
I also use Outlook at work and would like to sync that also with my Palm, such that I can check through my work actions on the commute.
I could of course...
Does anyone remember Actioneer? Great application that would essentially send items to your lists automatically by using kew words..If you typed the word "call", it would be dropped in your calls list etc..I think DA had something to do with it's creation?
Is there anything out there that works...
Anyone using the GTD Outlook Add-in with Outlook 2007 figure out a way to make adding the project and context to a task happen on the same screen? Having to flip to the add-in tab ruins the Add-in usefulness for me. Anyone found a work around? Thanks.
I'm using Jello.Dashboard and the one problem I'm finding with the lack of integration with Outlook's master category list.
For example, if I create a new context in Jello.Dashboard called "@Post Office", it will not appear in Outlook's master category list. Therefore, if I want to create a task...
This is more of a productivity/organization question.
I have a simple rich text file of about EVERY
online website userid/password
serial number for products
family social security numbers and blood types
credit cards and websites and phone info for those accounts
I'm hoping the great collective wisdom of the forum can give me a recommendation on a good smartphone. It's time for my sprint upgrade. Right now I have separate (crappy cheap) cell phone (samsung) and Tungsten E2. I run Ubuntu with evolution on my laptop. Here's what I need in a new...
any GTD templates for David RM The Journal ?
On the floor in a corner of my office, a white cardboard box sits in a somewhat crumpled heap. Its lid is missing. Out of its shadowy depths rises a foot-high stack of papers, spilling a couple of sheets slightly over the edge.
The box has sat there for weeks now, without my so much as touching...
I've read some of David Allen's book and have been meaning to get into GTD for a while, however I could do with some recommendations from people on a good solution for the Mac. I've had a look at both iGTD and OmniFocus (started using the latter although it's been a little unstable so I've just...
Has anyone heard of our organizing tool The Daybook? I was astounded when I recently saw a newspaper feature on GTD and found that our humble Daybook allows you to follow David Allen's advice in such an elegant manner. It's a book you keep open on your desk and take with you to meetings etc, where...
I want to get a Centro and use it with Leopard. You have to use Missing Sync third party software.
Is this simple and dependable if you are not that into computers?
The Missing Sync for Palm OS v6.0
I'm not sure I understand how the @folders created by the GTD plug-in are best used. Am I correct in understanding that they're just temporary holding areas, and I'm pretty much never supposed to look at what's in them, and instead I'm supposed to use the "Tasks" view for reviewing next actions,...
I'm just starting with GTD and one of my bewilderments is the dizzying array of tools available for managing your system. Left to my own devices, I'd probably lean strongly towards a web-based/open source toolset, but work uses Outlook so I'm trying to work with it. One basic problem I've run...
Hi All, first time on the forum.
I've become an avid user of the GTD system since seeing the book last year. I use a palm m500. Does anyone know a way around having only 15 categories for to do lists on the palm? If I were to get a new system (Palm upgrade, Pocket PC, etc). is there a way to...
Iím considering the move from a Treo (palmOS) to a Blackberry Curve using Blackberry Enterprise Server and have some questions:
Is there a limit to the number of categories on the Blackberry? This is one of the reasons Iím considering the move from a Palm based system.
Will the Blackberry...
I've got a trial version of Oxios ToDo List installed on Motorola Q 9c.
When ever a reminder for a task appears on my screen and I mark the task as being complete, it stays on my phone's screen. Is there a setting I can change so that the task disappears?
I don't want to delete the task,...
Hey guys, i wonder if there are any experts on the topic.
I'm just starting with gtd and trying to put everything inside one program.
