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 have had my Tungsten T5 for less than a year, but it has recently become unresponsive to powering on/off. I will try to turn it on (using the main power switch or any other button), and it is totally unresponsive. Hours later, I hear it beep, and when I go to check on it, only to find that it...
Have recently bought a Palm Z22. Am very pleased with it in many ways but when I enter a task with "no due date" it enters with a due date of 31/12/31! I can change it back once again when its on the list but this is a severe hassle and as I like a "show only due tasks" view I then have to change...
I'm looking for your help with ideas or suggestions on desk lamps or lighting as I upgrade my GTD cockpit at home. My GTD lists are in a paper planner and I've underestimated the importance of good lighting.
Calling all Mac users, I just disposed of my third PC laptop in six years and got myself a macbook. I used to use Microsoft Outlook with my Treo 650 with the GTD method. I still like my Treo, but don't know where to begin with software for Mac. Any suggestions?
I'm in the middle of doing some research for a dissertation and need to do a lot of reading - mostly of electronic documents. Reading documents on a computer screen is quite slow, compared to paper. Rather than print everything out, I was wondering if speed reading software could help.
I had a...

I'm in the final stages of finishing a new task manager application for Windows Mobile 5.0 SmartPhones called SmarterTasks that I'd like to invite everyone to try out.
I wrote SmarterTasks out of frustration in the lack of task management...
I am using Outlook and Palm Tungsten. I cannot get my Task from Outlook to show up in the Palm with the GTD categories. They just show up as Task without being in a category. What can I do?
Recently, Tunkel asked for advice on how to implement GTD within Lotus Notes:
Jay's question is a good one and I get asked this question often. GTD is a powerful methodology, while Lotus Notes and the Treo 600 represent powerful technologies. It is only natural, therefore, that folks should...
I just invested in a Brothers P-touch, Model PT-1280. I must have fooled around with the tab setting or something, and my print is coming out very small even though I selected large.
I have gone over the little "user manual" several times, and went through and tried a few different settings,...
I wanted to let you know that an EverNote 1.5 beta update is now available and share some of its latest features and improvements with you.

I was wondering what the most important aspects of an online or computer based GTD system. If you could have someone build a solution for you, what features would you insist that it have?
My top 3:
1. Simple Interface (this is what i think most online task managers and to-do systems lack)
Here is a great tool for those of us that love gmail but find it a bit messy:
GTDGmail is a Firefox extension that integrates the highly effective methodology of "Getting Things Done" into the popular email service Gmail.
After seriously considering the options, I'm sticking with a hybrid system for now. I have never tried PlannerPad or Time Design...I am looking into both right now. I am a mostly happy FranklinCovey user and have also used Day Timer in the past. I am trying to decide if it's time for a tool...
I'm a GTD newbie and I'm thinking on purchasing a PDA. I'm considering the Palm TX and I have not found any references of it in this forum.
Is the Treo the only one option for implementing GTD electronically? The OS in 700p is that different from TX's?
If any one can give me some...
I run a small business. Goldmine was installed before I became involved with this business. We have version 5.5 and we use it predominantly to manage leads/prospects. Once a prospect becomes a customer, we stop using Goldmine.
Goldmine is used heavily by my two Sales Representatives and lightly...
Accd to the log I haven't been here in 5 MONTHS!! 5 months ago I learned about GTD and really thought I was going to do it. I've played with it off and on, but I never committed to capturing everything through it, so it never became my go-to system.
I believe the principles will work, and I...
Just wondering if anyone has any experience using Inspiration. I just downloaded 30 day trial to use with my mac. So far it seems to offer a great deal in terms of mind mapping. I am looking for something to use in my work as a school counselor when i am writing letter of recommendations for...
I was wondering if anyone else has had the problem of the Podcasts from GTD Connect being in reverse order on the iPod. Is there a way to reverse it back to normal?
Can someone tell me of a free application or plug in for Google calendar where I can simultaneously sync Outlook at Google Calendar?
I'd like to be able to make a change and have it reflect in Outlook or vice versa...
Also, any talk of Google adding in a Task List?
Trying to follow the directions in the PDF "GTD and Outlook" to filter tasks - but the filter button is always dimmed. (In fact have looked at Contacts and Notes views as well, and dimmed everywhere.) What configuration change needs to be made to allow filtering?
