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:

-Family of 6 (4 kids). I have used MS Outlook (OL) for years. In OL have 1 main calendar (mine), and 5 sub (child) calendars (1 each) for wife and kids. Wife currently uses paper calendar. I have blackberry

For me the only notifications I have setup are:
The phone - ringer on
Omnifoucs- time based events/actions
iCal - for appointments
I personally feel the less notifications I see/hear for more in tuned I am with the current work I'm doing. This might sound super obvious, but by turning off as...
I was wondering if I am the only one constantly trying out new software for doing my GTD stuff.
I've changed a couple of email clients in the last few years, but my real weakness are the task managers. I've tried a huge number: for PC, for Mac, web-based, for Pocket PC (back then), for Windows...
I love this system, I tried it years ago but it did not work. I now have 14 days to implement this system before I move and open a general surgery practice. I need consistency, I have an android phone, an iPad, a windows laptop, and a pc. I set up my own personal exchange account and have tried...
GTD Times post Is Your Smartphone Making You Less Productive? comments:
Do you use your smartphone to waste time on e-mail double processing?
Size of gear is a consideration when traveling.
Sometimes I participate in online meetings from my hotel room. Wondering if anyone has favorite headsets (or even USB microphones) that connect to a laptop, are easy to pack, and work well for them.
Hey GTD Community.
I'm following GTD for years, and one thing I couldn't nail down yet: managing list of people.
I meet a lot of random people daily, and I would like to have the information I get more organized. For example, yesterday I met some people in a party, many are friends of...
I've just read the GTD bible and im going to implement it into my workflow. Though im not a pen & paper guy I need some sort of software to make it happen. I do IT related work and we have lots of systems that we use, most of the data i work with is available for browsing (& copy/paste).
I'm just getting started with GTD and am looking for a good software solution for the Mac. I'm a tech guy and spend a lot of time on the computer and ios devices, so I need something that will allow me to sync the iphone and mac version easily. I see that Things finally set up a beta that will...
Not sure about the etiquette of posting something from David's tweet back to his forum but I really enjoyed looking at this:
The original is slightly larger showing the printer on the right. If you want to see it go here.
Hi all - So I've recently moved from the US to Britain. Something that is driving me a little nuts is the different way that filing cabinets are set up here. I am used to having a bunch of hanging file folders (I know this is what David Allen says NOT to do) and then within my hanging files...
I was wondering if anyone found a way to add a categorie ( Colour Label) , or auto-folder mail from a mailing list ?
I decide to post for Help!
This is what I want.
A computer Side (15")
A papers Side
Extra Space for travel
My dream will be to have it separate but the ability to make it toghether at any time I need.
I have Mac's in my office (boutique law firm) and am looking for a GTD plug in. I currently use Outlook 2011 for Mac but eproductivity for outlook does not appear to be compatable. Any suggestions on a software plug in I can use on the Mac to maximize GTD?
I use omnifocus but don't really make use of all the features, because to be honest they are a bit too complicated for me. However, I would like to make use of the system that allows you to email in actions to your omnifocus inbox. Having never used it I just wanted to see what...
I run a Kumon centre where I have 70+ students whose parents (should) get regular phone calls updating them on progress. Does anyone know of an app (iphone or Mac) that would automatically remind me to call the parents 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months and 1 year after the students starts...
I'me a newbie on GTD and I've tried to look in this forum and others to find some answer in my doubt/trouble using Pocket informant for Ipad/iphone (I use both), can you please help me on the below issues reported because I'm going crazy ...:-)
Thanks in advance.
Main issue using of...
I have been using ActionPad for memos for the last year and have been very happy with it until now. Unfortunately the password protection has got corrupted. Now my password never works for any memo. (Before I had the same password for all protected memos, so I am quite sure it is not me...
I am looking at switching from Outlook to Thunderbird, as I prefer the open-source more customizable interface that Mozilla offers. (I have already switched from IE to Firefox.) However, I am reluctant to give up the integration of email, tasks and calendar that Outlook and the GTD Outlook add-on...
A quick review of David Allen's GTD Cooridantor in a paragraph ... if you prefer a paper based system buy this binder NOW !!! The index cards, moleskins, coiled binders and all the DIY stuff can never do what this system can. For the price... $50 ... it's a steal! I've used all the systems I've...
