Thoughts on GTD

I thought I’d put these in a blog post, since they weren’t getting any attention from me buried in a document on my phone. They came out of my first reading of this book several years ago. I think I need to read it again.

Getting things done / David Allen
recommendations from Book Nook on

-does workflow diagram apply to weekly review only? Or anything that comes along?

-Actually, REAL listmaker wants:
1. Someday/maybe lists
2. Next action lists
Waiting for
@shopping (variety of shops)
3. Master projects list
4. Individual project lists that are big enough to require them (e.g., Remodel Project, that needs project lists for individual projects)

*Where do you put recurring tasks that are NOT dated?
-Trash obviously does not require a list
-Reference material: some may be needed in planner for ready reference
-In his reference filing, he did not explain where to put stuff you want to read and throw away?

Regularly revamp project and s/m lists.

    For implementing GTD you might try out this new web-based application:

    You can use it to manage your goals, projects and tasks, set next actions and contexts, use checklists, schedules and a calendar.
    A mobile version and iCal are available too.

    Hope you like it.
