This has probably been discussed before so I apologize if this is redundant but I have searched and cannot find the answers I am looking for. I am very anxious to start GTD and have read the book but I have not started yet. I am having a problem with how to get started, in other words, what system to utilize. I keep reading posts here as well as many of the blogs that are around, and I see lots of great ideas but cannot put it together in a cohesive plan for myself. So, I thought maybe if I lay it all out here there may be some good ideas. It does seem to me that I should keep things simple to start so I can get used to the whole concept first. Here is some background:
I work in an office the majority of the time but am out of the office (locally) around 15-30% of the time depending on the week. We use Outlook in the office and I am about to get a Blackberry 8703e from the office. I have been using a Treo 600 up until now. I think that I will keep my calendar and contacts on Outlook and sync with the Blackberry. I am torn between going digital for the rest or paper but I am now leaning towards paper, at least until I get the concepts down. I receive about 25-35 phone calls per day that have to be returned and about 50-100 emails a day that I need to reply too.
OK, that is my story, I am really hoping someone can help me out so I can get off of the starting block and start moving forward, thank you.
