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 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 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...
I have never used a label maker before and I notice that the various widths of tapes and kinds of tape they will tape seem to be distinguishing points.
For those of you already using label makers - how often are you making labels wider than 1/2 inch?
I have a desk top pc and a smart phone, I sync the calendars, will the add in work on the phone?
btw.... disappointed netcentricks won't make a 64 bt outlook 2010. I have 32 bit office on a 64 bit win7 os, I guess this is the end of the line for that add in software?
I just wanted to let you know that if you are using the GTD Outlook Add-in and you're thinking of putting your Outlook in the iCloud, please read this first:
GTD Outlook Add-In is not compatible with...
Dear David and/or GTD community, I am new to the forum. Have been studying the GTD material and pretend to start its application this coming monday. What IPAD App do you recommend the most for GTD? :confused:
Just wondering if anyone would be interested in a meeting up on google plus to share ideas and chat about GTD?
It's a bit like a group skype call.
Good time might be 8:30PM GMT / 3:30PM EST / 12:30 PST on Sunday?
I'm looking for advice on how to handle the below situation. Any ideas welcomed!
I am a busy GM for a small organisation and as such have resonsibility for staff and recruitment across a range of areas.
As we are still a growth company one of my key areas of focus is staff structure...
Ho - i use outlook 2007 with the netcentrics GTD plugin. It works well, and I was very happy having tasks sync to my Blackberry, as the BB task app allowed me to view my next actions by context.
Recently I've started also using an iphone with ios5 and the reminder app. I am able to sync tasks...
Favorite brand of index cards ?
I am trying to work out what systems would be appropriate for using with GTD in my work place and would value some input from people that have run up against similar issues. Here is my situation:
Currently I use a paper GTD based system that I have developed for myself over the years, which is...
I have spent the last few weeks doing the latest round of my quest for the "right" GTD system. Once again I come up empty-handed and arrive back at "good old" Toodledo. I guess before I even start, I should say why I end back at Toodledo: it is rock solid, the web app is accessible everywhere,...
This post addresses the ubiquitous problem of finding a file cabinet that allows you to get rid of hanging-file folders and use only manila folders. The short answer is to find a file cabinet containing the so-called "spring-loaded follower block" (or "follower block" for short).
So what is a...
Anyone actually used this? Was it worth it?
When I raised the question last year, I believe that several people thought it would be more problematic that helpful.
Meanwhile, I have several shoe boxes of receipts of various shapes, sizes and colors.

I don't use Apple Mail but Postbox, but I think the same should work in Mail too.
When creating a new item in OmniFocus regarding an email that I need to refer back to for replying or quoting, I also make sure to create a link to that particular email in Postbox. Then, whenever I need to find...
I just picked up a NEAT document scanner with the version 5 SP 3 software. I looks like a promising way to reduce the amount of paper that I store in my cabinet. The software is database driven and makes all the stuff that you enter searchable. I am looking for best practices on folder and file...
Hello I have tested some GTD software and I noticed that some software are using milestones.
I like to know if someone has used mile stones and if it has a effect on the GTD mindset.
By example; I have some "project"
