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 don't know about anyone else here, but I've been struggling over the
last year to make a decision whether to manage my tasks through an
Outlook add-in like Franklin Covey's PlanPlus for Outlook, or a
standalone product like MyLifeOrganized.
I'm a heavy Outlook user, as it is our...
I´m planning on getting a Palm TX but I really rely on Google Calendar as my personal primary calendar, in fact, I'm using the GTD Firefox extension for Google Calendar.
Is there a way to sync Google Calendar with a PDA? specifically Palm TX? I know TX has web browsing capabilities but I'm...
When you add markers to a group in the Map Markers pane and you open a new map, those markers do not show up.
Is there a way to add markers to the pane which keep showing up there by default? It is a bit bugging to keep adding certain tags to the pane each and every time...
For those who use various special programs, this will seem like the idiot's method but it is a breakthrough for me. By putting websites in address book, rather than favorites (using a name I will remember for "name" and putting the web address in the web page space), I can have a simple and...
Last week I had one of those classic Homer J. "Doh!" moments.
I've been struggling with managing e-mail for some time given the large volume of e-mail I routinely recieve. (150-300+ per day.) The challenge I've always had is that I've never been comfortable deleting much e-mail as I've been...
I've been using an interesting product (free download) for Outlook for the last few weeks that does a good job implementing GTD within Outlook. It's called jello.dashboard (current version is 2.55).
It replaces the Outlook Today page with an incredibly functional view of all your tasks,...

I bought a DYMO LM150 labeller about six months ago.
It worked fine for a few months and now it is missing bits of the characters when it prints. I have tried cleaning the print head with the included head cleaner but that doesn't...
for Lotus Notes users I have developed a GTD template. It is integrated with your Mail template, uses Projects and Actions close to the GTD sense. Existing PDA and smartphone synchronization are still working with it!
It is still beta. You can check it here (documentation...
I am able to implement GTD using Outlook locally very well and it works great. My latest problem is that I now partner with a colleague on many projects and need a centrally located GTD solution that both of us can use from separate locations to track all of our projects, calendars, etc.
Does anyone have a trick for appending to a large Someday/Maybe List on the run?
I have heard that you cannot append PALM memos that are over a certain length. Can anyone help me out to confirm this?
My first idea was to have an active list and an archive list, so that the most current list...
My employer is giving me a Blackberry. I have a choice of three models:
Which should I go for?
I'll be using it mainly for email, and occasionally as a phone.
Could someone share in detail how they have implemented GTD in Outlook. I have gone though the Outlook white paper and have been partially sucessful in implementing it.
I would like to hear from others how they have modified the sytem. My challenge has been processing and handling of emails....
This is a little handlheld scanner and translator. I purchased this for a family member who is studying a text in a foreign language. I think it has great potentional for getting through read and review actions when the primary information is on paper.
I am wondering if any GTD users have...
Hello new friends!
I am a software engineer. I always need to thrash out the tasks in my work.
I made new way by mixing GTD and managing the tasks with RHODIA.
I call it "GTD + R".
It is very simple for the concept. I call it "Card game for push through the work" as metaphor.
As a mac gtd user, I can't wait for the apple iphone to become available in June... http://www.apple.com/iphone/ It looks amazing.
Can you recommend an integrated recipe / shopping list software for mac?
I also am interested in a straight shopping list program for mac.
I used this when I was on PC. It was excellent:
Let me start by saying that I am new to GTD. I have already listened to an audiobook version of GTD, and now I am in the process of reading the actual book.
I can see the great potential in GTD, and how it can improve my life. However, I am not sure what might be the best way for me to implement...
