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:

Thanks to everyone for your recommendations awhile back about computer security. I now have a new laptop and am using Zone Alarm, AVG Free, Ad-Aware, Spybot, and Spyware blaster, and things seem to be going fine so far.
Does anyone have recommendations on books or websites for general computer...
I have looked at the Lifebalance software online and read some of the posts here about it and it looks interesting. Does it have an integrated calendar and contact manager, or do you have to use other programs like iCal (I am a Mac user) and Address Book?
Thank you very much for your patience.
Version 2.1.33 is now available for download.

I am beginning to implement GTD into my life. I am an IT Support person, so a lot of my professional life is reactionary, and not proactive.
I cannot decide how to best setup my GTD. I am printing out a first run Hipster PDA from the DIY Template at...
I've been playing with OneNote and GoBinder as a collection and note taking tool. My sense is that they are better suited to TabletPC users.
I've also played around with Infoselect.
What other software tools are people using to capture notes that you want to retreive later?
I searched through the archives but must have missed this answer:
Does the PDF version teach me how to set up everything to be the same as the automated download?
Other than the automation in the download what is the value difference? thanks
I want to create a button in my Toolbar that immediately opens a specific folder in Outlook. I have managed to do this using "Customize"... and have a hyperlink <outlook://InfoStore/POSTS>, but this opens the folder in a new window - which I really don't want (and the alternative via the OL...
I really like David`s principles. However, they seem to be mostly concerned with producing a result. As a project manager, sometimes the method and path is as important as the outcome (especially when the outcome is not desireable). To that end, I have been developing a way to use Outlook to...
Looking for a compact but powerful portable/foldable book light to use on business travel. I have one but the light output is just too anemic. How about the itty-bitty book light?
Anyone got one that throws out a lot of light but is small, compact, easily portable? For use in airplanes,...
I just wanted to share a great tip that I just set up for myself today.
I have a Gmail account (and heaps of invites if anyone wants to send me an email at trisha @ genesislifecoaching. com requesting one) and I recently installed Gmail Drive from http://www.viksoe.dk/code/gmail.htm
This question is for David company staff member, can you give to members of the forum the date of the release of the add-in?
Anyone out there using Agendus for PalmOS?
I've been using it for a year now, and I really like it for a couple reasons. Mainly that it can link a Contact to an NA (Todo). Then, when you check off the NA as complete, Agendus will automatically log the text of the NA into the notes for that...
I have just switched to a Palm Tungsten E2 and I am having trouble finding the right conduit to synch to Entourage X. The Microsoft website reads like you have to have an older Palm device or Entourage 2004. Is this the case?
Any help would be appreciated.
Hi all --
Big fan and long-time user of GTD here. Trying to get it to work with my Mac/palm setup and running into some difficulties. Need some suggestions, please -- before I tear out what's left of my hair!
I'm using a desktop Mac, an iBook, and a Palm Tungsten E.
For Calendar, I am...
I have a nice, metallic case that I use to hold about 20 business cards in my suit jacket pocket on occasions where I dress formally.
Other times however, such as when Iím at the gym, running errands, etc., I still meet people and like to exchange business cards. So I keep additional cards in...
I'm lost without the project form. It's as if I've lost my car keys and have somewhere important to go.
I can't figure out where it went. I didn't uninstall it, the projects set up already using it are still there and utlize the form but any new project doesn't utilize it.
I am looking for CDs in the Car, but I like to have something like the GTD Fast! regular Audiobooks put me to sleep. Any ideas????
I'm learning the GTD method, and at the same time trialing the GTD Outlook Add-in. My plan is to teach this to others at our company.
I understand the larger concept, and feel that once I get used to the basic implementation concepts I will be off and running. I'm in the process of...
I was just wondering if David still uses his Palm Desktop software or if he switched to Outlook and the Outlook GTD Add-In.
Does anybody know?
