I'm new to GTD Connect. Are there any threads discussing the application of GTD to particular occupations/professions? I'm a CPA. I've always had trouble dealing with some of workflow tools most accountants use. Such as:
Timesheets -to record tasks billable to clients.
Work schedules, tax return control worksheets (computerized or paper),
(return data received, open items, input completed, return reviewed, return printed and collated, signed, mailed, mailed by UPS, Fed Ex, etc)
Due date monitoring databases (for the enormous number of many different due dates- 1/30, 1/31, 2/15, 3/15, 3/20, 4/1, 4/15, 5/15, 6/15, 6/20, 7/15, 7/31, 9/15, 9/20, 10/15 to name just a few!!!) Only an accountant would know what I'm talking about.
Not only does an accountant have an enormous amount of paperwork to do himself, all with firm deadlines, but he/she has enormous of amounts of work to delegate. Not only are there vast numbers of tasks in the future, almost all of them have to be recorded for billing purposes - who did what and for how long. Then, of course, we have to be concerned with all the other aspects of running and growing a business; marketing and sales, for me being the biggest concern.
