New user from Argentina and some questions


My name is Ernesto and I am from Argentina. After trying several "digital solutions" (like Covey´s Plan Plus, "My Life Organized" or "Life Balance"), I am planning to back to the old and trustable paper.

I have recently purchased David Allen´s "Getting Thing Done" ("Organizate con Eficacia" is the name in its spanish version) and I´m reading it and trying to put the GTD system to work.
I´m a little confused about the plethora of forms available in the "calendar" and "core" files of the DYI Planner.
As an example, what´s the difference between "Daily Planner" and "Day Tracker". Which do I need to use as agenda? Which form is useful for "Next actions" in the GTD method?

Thankfully in advance and sorry if my english is not clear.

Making Choices...

Hi Ernesto,

Your English is fine, bienvenidos al foro!

First stop is the D*I*Y Handbook, packed with useful information. and tips on setting up one's planner.Calendars are a personal choice. Unless you need something specific for your work, choose the one you feel the most comfortable with.

Turning to the A5 1-up edition 'core' we find Agenda(s) Templates on pages 19 - 22.

For 'Next Action' lists we have Conbined Actions on pages 7 and 8; Actions on pages 9 - 12; the Actions Quadrant on pages 13 and 14 and for that StarTrek moment; the Satellite Action Card (SAC) ;)
