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 read GTD and purchased the Netcentrics Outllook Add in....But I have a major workflow mess to clean up...1000+ emails in the inbox and scads of written notes; 10+ direct reports, in a new position that has been vacant for some time. Anyway, I am struggling with using the software to drain...
I wrote up my trusted system.
I use Levenger products for LoFi, Apple for HiFi though you can do almost everything with Windows too if you had to, except run DEVONthink.
I try to keep my workflow as agnostic as possible because I have to work on...
Will I be able to use the GTD add-in?
If so, which handheld can I use for calendar and contact info, for easing synching with my Mac? I assume I won't be able to use my current iPAQ, which is running Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition and I am planning to upgrade it to Windows Mobile 5.0.
I've been resisting using outlook all-day free appointments for "anytime today next actions". Not quite sure why. Maybe because thinking about it causes my brain to want to explode... It just seems so wrong somehow to use a free calendar event to track a next action with a due date.
New version of TaoNotes 3D 2.84 http://actitrend.fre3.com
throws away the majority of evaluation limitations (savins now enabled, actually no evaluation period, etc). This is time limited offer.
I'm trying to port my Outlook GTD system to my new MacBook Pro, where I'd like to use the Mac programs iCal, Mail, and Adress Book instead of Entourage. And I'd like to keep my Pocket PC iPAQ instead of switching to Palm. Is anyone out there doing this? I'm using MarkSpace's synchro program for...
I'm wondering if anyone is using this? It holds two rolls of label paper--so you could keep a roll of file labels in it and a roll of mailing labels all the time, ready to use. It doesn't have a keyboard, so it has to be attached to the computer, but it integrates with QuickBooks, Outlook, Act,...
Is anyone able to recommend a labeller which I can buy in the UK?
there appears to be a huge difference in price:
I am really mad at the moment and thinking about switching from Outlook to a Lo-Fi method.
Till then, how is the best way to backup my tasks, I lost everything and I mean all my tasks, the only things left are my completed tasks :mad: :mad:
I have implemented the solution with a contact folder used for projects (so that next actions and projects are linked) and it works great for me but I am still unsure about where to put the dependent actions that I will have to complete once the next action is completed.
I downloaded the Entourage White paper. For anyone else who is trying it and for you beta testers will you tell us what you think?
I really like the Project center for project management. I can handle all files related documents in word, emails, appointments and contacts and its very easy to...
I've seen a few threads by people who do most, if not all, of their general reference filing by scanning the documents in question and storing them electronically. I really like this idea and would like to give it a try myself.
My question is, which scanning software is best? One poster...
For you guys using a 3 x 5 index card setup, I just noticed that Levenger has little plastic file folders for 3 x 5 cards. Item No. ADS2955. $16
I'm not affiliated, I just spend too much money there. :)
The much-anticipated Mac-friendly cousin to the "Getting Things Done With Outlook" document is now available for sale:
has anyone tried a free app from AbstractSpoon called ToDoList? I'm giving it a whirl and i'd like to hear something about implementation of GtD in it.
I'm curious if it's worth of implementing and how do you syncing it with PDA (Palm)?
NeatReciept is a little scanner that takes vatrious sizes of receipts and will sort out the info and expoert it to a financial program for you. I am thinking about getting this. Anyone have experience with it. I am worried that it might be more trouble than it is worth.
Hi all :-P
I am learning my way around GTD and researching the helper tools. My partner and I run an incredibly busy service website where the name of the game is to stay on top of things and being able to take over where another person left off. We need a shared contact management and...
anyone have this phone? http://www.cellphonestalk.com/cellphonereviews/lg/f9200/intro.html
how is the display with the STN technology, and not "TFT"

I know there's often talk about finding small pens (Fischer Space Pens etc.) I got this link on a gadget blog today. It looks like a pretty good option. www.inkacorp.com
I use a PDA and stylus because I can rarely read my own handwriting. But, if I used a paper based system or a Hipster PDA...
One of the things to do during the weekly review is to check that all current projects have at least one next action.
I use Outlook and have already found the instructions at http://home.comcast.net/~whkratz/id3.htm, with how to turn Contacts into Projects each with associated next actions...
