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:

Before I installed the "Getting Things Done" add-on, I had a bar at the top of my task list where I could simply tab through and enter tasks. This bar was simply labled in light gray "click here to add a new task." The same bar shows up on the contact tab as well.
After I installed the GTD...

Will the gtd for outlook add in work with other language versions of outlook than english?
I have decided to "force" my GTD implementation to work with my BB - it's too convenient to have PDA/Phone/Email all in one!
My work around the absence of the so-important categories field is to use prefixes for each task (aca for @calls, aof for @office, etc...). When away from my PC/Outlook,...
At the risk of starting a religious war (or even a heated discussion), I'd like to hear from people who have used GTD on both Palm and PPC and can give me some comparison.
I have been a Palm user for quite some time. I use my Palm with GTD, but not as successfully as I would like. ...
I am trying to save Bill's "Contacts as Projects" form (http://home.comcast.net/~whkratz/id15.htm) to my Outlook, but it's not taking.
It's all good until I get to the Projects Properties window and the project form doesn't appear in the "When posting..." drop down list.
My only options are...
Any suggestions for a good, EASY TO USE tool that will let you back up your MS Outlook (NOT Outlook Express)? I see many such software products on the wrb when googling for same but would appreciate any insights from folks here who have used one. Computer bug just erased a bunch of files. I had...

I haven't used it yet. Could be useful for sorting e-mail.
Quite a few years ago, I invested in a Circa punch from Levenger. Even though Levenger sells a full range of Circa notebooks, etc., the American sizes (letter and junior) used are different from what we use here in Malaysia (the "A" system. including A4 and A5 that I use the most).
Starting a new job next week -- stressing, stressing, breathe, breathe -- okay, I'm fine. Really.
Of course by the time next Monday rolls around I want to be the GTD master, king-on-high, all-knowing, the guy David comes to advice but...

In my quest to find a digital GTD method that works the way I work, I found this program. Has anyone tried this for GTD?
It looks so deserted and not updated in a while so I'm skeptical to download it and was hoping someone knew something about it. It seems to have...
I am thinking of switching to IMAP for email. I've heard that the GTD plug-in works somewhat, but not great in a IMAP world. Anyone have experience and able to comment?
I'm not a techie -- been using a paper planner, but in my new job I've got access to the whole Microsoft suite which I think I will begin using as a Treo is in the offing as well.
Basic question-- and I don't mind (nay, would be grateful) being steered to the proper thread in case I overlooked...
I find project Actions (task) somewhat difficult to keep organized. I wan to keep actions related to a specific project in flowing order but I have been unsuccessful. Can us some help.
I want outlook to stop automatically receiving email - i want to either do it manually or at longer intervals e.g. 2 hours
Anyone know how - I need to stop looking at email all days and focus on NA's!
I just updated to 5.0 and changed the java version from the java preferences as instructed in the installation instructions. However, from the terminal if I type java -version it shows that the 1.4 is still the default. Can someone tell me how to set 5.0 as the default from the terminal.
Sorry for this long post, but I wanted to share my evolution through the tools I've used. I have been doing GTD for about 6 months now. I've been searching for the right tool and I think I have finally found it, the GTDTiddlyWiki: http://shared.snapgrid.com/gtd_tiddlywiki.html
I've tried a...
It has features I will never use. And unless I carry the directions around with me all the time, I can't figure out how to access the features I want to use. I can use the time in hours, minutes, and seconds, the 24-hour time, the alarm, and the hourly chime. I don't need the timer, the lap...
