Thinking about GTD
My wife and I are looking for something like GTD. GTD seems to have the most support, but I've been tricked by cross-marketing gimmicks before (NYT does a piece on a "new wonder thing" coincidentally when that "wonder thing" is making a big marketing push. Writers can be lazy and it's easier to accept the promotional material as a legitimate article than write a real article on time management).
So, how is GTD different from the others, and does it REALLY work?
I know that "make the plan, work the plan" is a mantra for people who want to get things done, so it's always up to the individual, ultimately, but I just don't have the money or time to chase another system down the rabbit hole.
I know this is like going to a Christian forum and asking if I should become a Christian, but I'm hoping people will be honest and reflective.
I'd like to try the GTD system, but I'm wary. What would you recommend I do first to see if the GTD system will work for me?
Are there any free or inexpensive resources available so I can get an idea of what life is like when I'm interacting and working the system?
