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:

Sorry to ask this, but I am reading the dutch version of the GTD book,and I do not understand what kind of paper filing system David advises.
Could someone show me a url to a picture?
Since I received such fabulous advice on my last problem I thought I would try one more!
I have a Custom Tool bar that I set up in Outlook 2003 that has lots of auto text sales letters on it. I have another employee who I would like to have the same settings. Can I save a file or download my...
Just wanted to let you fellow primates know that the new version of my do-it-yourself (paper) planner kit has been released. Currently, it's for standard 5.5"x8.5" paper, but a version for A5 is in the pipe.
Included are 50+ templates of ooey-gooey organisational goodness, some stylish covers, a...
Has anyone experienced any problems using Lookout with the GTD Outlook Add-In?
Does anyone know of an add-in for Outlook that is similar to Entourage's Project Center?
Is there a macro/add-in/hidden function in Outlook that can keep you from creating uncategorized tasks, contacts, etc.? A VBA script that brings up a dialog box saying "categorize me!" when you attempt to close the window and save the record without adding a category to the item seems like it would...
I'm a GTD newbie, but am convince this is the approacch I've been looking for all my life. I've set up my email, tasks and notes per DA's direction in both books and in the Workflow Processing Guideline I purchased. When I sync my computer to my IPAQ 3870, I do not get the category breakdown. All...
Does anyone have a hard-copy filing system/ method that they swear by, other than the one in GTD, or a modified version?
Does anyone really swear by the one in GTD?
To those of us who have been bit by the activewords bug, check out this free alternative: http://www.bayden.com/SlickRun/
It doesn't have as many features (yet), but for what I use it for, it suits me fine.
Does anyone use a paper planner with GTD?
I use a Mac OSX, Entourage for mail and calendar, sync to DateBook 5 on my Palm m515. Use ShadowPlan on Palm, but it has only a manual conduit to the Mac desktop and I am afraid to use that. I await the auto conduit and then plan to look into Omni...
I have a "best practices" question regarding using the Tasks list in Outlook. When I have a project that needs unsticking, I will break out the legal pad and do a little mind mapping. Then I will open a new task and in the notes section and chronologically list the actions I derived from my mind...
Let's see if we can get the "Sig" function to work. As it stands now a persons sig appears when you "preview post" but is not added when you actually post.
Let's turn on the avatars!
Anybody find any other bugs/features with the new forum software?
I have recently setup Outlook for GTD following the instructions from David Allen Company.
I am using Outlook 2003 and it appears that there is a limit on the number of All Day Events that can be displayed on one day. The limit appears to be 15. You can enter more than 15 but only 15 are...
I routinely clear out cookies/history etc. This means that the address bar should then be empty. However, I have found that two addresses relating to Davidco always remain after the clean out: if I type in www.d, the whole davidco addresses appear. This only happens with one other site that I...
Since a month I try to install GtD outlook add-inns for the trail version, but it always failed and outlook (XP in a corp. environment) collapses always when activating the gtd.dll. I tried erverything but nothing works out: deinstalling Palm sync. software, new laptop with no other outlook...
I've been on a (rather unsuccessful) quest for the ultimate software solution.
At work I'm restricted by my company's Outlook Exchange server. Email and Calendar *must* be used within this context (group scheduling, etc.) So, for me, the dream solution would be an Outlook replacement that...
I was looking into the ereader page and found GTD in ebook. I did not find any information here, I hope is useful.
I have been using GTD for more than a year now and am familiar with the process. Since many are recommending the GTD add-in, I decided to give it a shot.
What strikes me is that the management of projects is very messy. If I tick a project off as completed in the Tasks list, it will still show...
