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:
Many have asked if they can help fight spam in this forum. In the bottom left corner of each and every post there is a little "Report Post" icon. You will need to be logged into the Forums to see this icon. It looks like this:

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...
There's a new version of the Outlook add-in due for release in the summer.
See https://gtdsupport.netcentrics.com/updates/#v2.1 for further information.
Do I dare suggest an improvement to the already perfect Hipster PDA?
3 x 5 cards can be, let's face it, bulky. How often do users of the excellent Hipster actually write from top to bottom and side to side of each and every 3 x 5 card?
Try this: Find a guillotine and cut some 3 x 5 cards in...
in the book GTD, Dave says not to use hanging files, what alternatives are out there.
If my folders require hanging files, then do I put ONE folder in each file and then just label the indentation of the folder where it is cut ?

Any suggestions on the best pocketPC or palm to get for implementing GTD?
I've subscribed to a thingie at my bank that sends my credit card statements on-line. When I used to get the paper statements, I used to conciliate them to the receipts I've collected using a pen, placing a checkmark next to the line on the statement.
Now that i've gone paperless, is...
I am very new to GTD - just finishing the tape series.
My concern is with project management. I "have" to see the scope and depth of projects relatively regularly to feel comfortable about progress. I am one of those 20,000+ feet people who have trouble with the runway view.
Currently I'm using ACT for my next action lists and thinking of transfering my hotmail contacts/calendar into there as well. The question is: Is this the best software program for this kinda of integrated next action list + calendar + contact list available? Are there any similar programs which...
I am looking for an index card 3x5 box that holds the cards upright 5"vertical. All of the boxes I have found are the other way around. Even Levenger with the neat pocket brifcase stuff does not carry one. Any ideas?
Hi all - my first post!
Does anyone know why the Audible.com version of GTD is not available in the UK?
It isn't listed on Audible's UK site and when I find it on the US site and try to add it to my basket I get the message 'Due to you geographical location this product is not available' (or...
All, anyone have a recomendation for a brand of ink for a fountain pen for a left handed person?
I just downloaded the trial version. It is reputed to be an excellant helper for GTD. I found the link on Amazon while checking out Getting Things Done book & other formats available. It's at www.themasterlist.com it is rather daunting (to me) at first glance.
I'm new to GTD and just getting my system set up. However, I've been using a software tool for other things and I'm really liking how it fits into GTD.
xReminder Pro is a really simple Windows program. You define reminders, and it pops up a reminder. You can schedule recurring reminders or...
I would like to be able to automatically insert the current date into the subjec title of an Outlook Task either using a right click and then selecting a date option, or generating a macro to do this which I can call by typing e.g. Cntrl D for example. I'd kind of like to be able to have the same...
Is anybody still using a Psion to GTD ? I've gone through Palms and PPCs over the last 5-6 years and have just resurrected a Psion Revo. I'm curious to hear if any die-hard Psion fans are putting these machines to good use ?
My firm has finally made the switch to Outlook, and it's been great to have the GTD Outlook Add-In available on my office desktop. I've been using it with Outlook on my laptop computer for quite a while now. I've also been syncing Outlook to my Treo 600 using Cahpura's KeySuite.

I've been lurking for a bit while I work out the system that would be best for my implementation of GTD. The posts have been very helpful, but I didn't see one regarding a combo I'm considering.
Entourage seems to have almost everything I need, except that there are apparently issues...
Found this while surfing around. I haven't downloaded the trial yet, but I'm always looking for Tablet specific apps, and one for GTD would be great...
