GTD@Work: My Quest Ends


Perhaps you visited my forum post inquiring about online and offline GTD aids. A paper-based system will not suffice for my menagerie of information at work. I set out with a few criteria in mind. I need something quick and easy but capable of keeping the depth of information that I require to stay productive. The easier it is to utilize, the better. Multiple steps to try and alleviate more work fails to make sense. I like the idea of keeping things small and lightweight in terms of file sizes. Lastly, the GTD aid needs to be the right price, free. After much reading and experimentation in the past days, I believe I have found the best solution for me. However, I thought I would share a snippet of information on some different possibilities in case someone else is searching.

"Getting Things Done: My Experiences with Using GTD"

Hi, my name is Sara, and I am an Internet addict. (Shocked?) Some days I have no idea what I’m looking for or where I will find it. I know there is some site out there that will be a valuable resource. The exploring is half the fun. The other half is discovering a website that hits the spot. At first glance, this little website lacks the pizzazz of a major discovery. However, I assure you that this gem should not be overlooked. The usefulness of gtd.marvelz.com may not be evident at first. After all, another blog is just another blog, right? Wrong.

Having recently finished reading through David Allen’s Getting Things Done, I can relate to much of what this blog discusses. The author writes “…[I]t has changed my life in small and big ways. This blog is my attempt to share some of my experiences concerning GTD with you.” The entries began in January of 2007. My initial visit consisted of reading through the author’s blog entries. It was reassuring to discover that my beginnings with GTD were not dissimilar.

  • Projects List for v3 - 2up Front and Back

    This is a checklist titled "Projects" based on the v3 look.

    Usage advice: 

    I agree that a Projects list is an important part of the GTD implementation. I read this forum thread and decided to create one. This is just the "Actions" page from the official v3 core package with the title changed to "Projects". It is setup for 2up printing front and back.
