Hello experts: I read about the David Allen program in Businessweek (I finished a Ph.D. in business in July) and was so intrigued I bought the book right away. I start a great new job in May and want to fully implement the system in the best way possible. One of my initial sources of confusion is integrating all of the paper and pencil items with the electronic data that many of us use. Right now I'm using a computer running Windows Vista and using Outlook, but I plan to buy some sort of smart phone with a planner, etc. that would sync with whatever is on my computer when I move.
My question is what are the best tools/gadgets to work with the David Allen system, and do you have general recommendations on integrating the "hard" and "sort" aspects of your organization systems with confusing yourself or excessive duplication.
Thanks so much.
