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 am looking for a software or solution for organizing my tasks list. I
need for this to have the following things:
- I can define a list of taks, and subtasks for each of them (it can be done
by a lot of programs)
- When I am planning every day's work I can say for instance that I want...
Certainly, the first rule: each day, check the day's stuff, do it and be done with it!
But, on the occasion that I have to hunt for something that I put in by date and I can't remember the date, I waste a lot of time! I have to hunt through as many as 43 "folders". And, then for some of the...
For anyone that uses HandyShopper 3 to keep lists, or anyone looking for a very good and free list manager, I recommend that you visit the HandyShopper developer's web site and get the newly released version 3. I don't have the web site, but google finds it.
GTDers who use Outlook and need a project planning tool that is more sophisticated than what native Outlook offers, but not as robust as Microsoft Project, might consider the new ProjectsPlus from Franklin-Covey. It appears that FC has disaggregated some of the key components of their PlanPlus...
i have my folders, my filing cabinet - how shall I stack them up?
I think I read about using a bookend?
Anyone out there using the beta version of Evernote? I'm a few days in and really see the value of it for ubiquitous capture, action lists that can be accessed from almost anywhere (or printed out as necessary), and long-term reference storage.
Just curious about your experience. I have a few...
I use an iPhone and .Mac mail pretty successfully for my GTD Setup. I was wondering what those of you with Jail Broken iPhones are using for Apps???

can someone point out a good place to buy the manilla folders?

I know I could spend 2-4 hours searching the Connect site for my answer but just posting the question is soooo much easier.
My Palm m505 died this week, god rest its soul. I'd shoe-horned most all my GTD stuff into Palm's clunky and non-intuitive software using David's suggestions for same and...
Looking into getting a file cabinet. Was considering a 3 or 4 draw HON 30" lateral, with filing back to front. That would make it the equivalent of a 6-8 draw vertical for slightly more cost. (These are both assuming letter size papers). As I hope to use the bottom draw (or half of it...
New to the boards and first-time poster! I'm in the middle of reading GTD for the second time and things are really starting to sink in.
I'm about to put together my A-Z Reference system and have a few questions:
1. Manila Folders: What size (letter/legal/etc.) and cut...
Not sure how many of you have seen the awesome bags that Gary at Waterfield is making...but they are really wonderful. Check them out at sfbags.com and you won't be disappointed. I use a number of their products and can't find anything wrong with the amazing craftsmanship and attention to detail.
I am happy to announce the release of GTDLive! This is a ten CD audio set of David's two day seminar. The official launch date is 4/4/08 Read more about it tomorrow in the GTD Store here:

I know there are many threads covering various sync issues, but didn't see anything covering this specific scenario.
What software/system do you recommend to keep calendar, contacts and tasks synchronized between my Outlook 2003 at work and at home, plus my mobile phone?
I am looking for notepads that have the following features:
- 5.5" x 8.5"
- Top bound
- Side 3 hole punch (preferred but not required)
- Preferrably available in Blank, Graph, and Ruled
If not available, I would consider having them made. Any suggestions where to have them...
I found this to be a very useful review of some of the top GTD apps for the Mac:
Good evening ~
What's the best solution y'all have found for having the "in use" folders out and available? I have looked at some of the wall holders by Ultimate Office but they are pretty expensive.
Any other great solutions? I prefer to have it off the desk if possible, thus the idea of...
Has anyone come up with a workable solution to use a treo with entourage 2008?
Frankly, I think microsoft's suggestion to use sync services would be laughable if it weren't so infuriating.
This might help someone who is in the tenderfoot stage of organizing his or her files. If I stole this from someone, I apologize.

Draw a sketch that shows what the board looks like (what is where).
Then write out the rules of the game (criteria for...
Those of you who have the Motorola Q with the extended battery (e.g. Q 9c from Sprint), what are you using for a case?
I'm happy with the phone, but all of the cases for the Q are designed for the traditional battery, not the extended battery. (The extended battery adds a little bulk to the back...
