I thought that this forum might get me what I need without my necessarily knowing what I needed.
I'm certainly getting what I need out of this thread:
1. Some customer book reviews by folks who I could trust a bit more because of their focus on GTD.
2. Some different reactions to the "Things" issue to get me unstuck.
In addition, it's given me some "SomedayMaybe" ideas about workplace aesthetics for personal productivity.
