    He doesn't use a paper system anymore. I think he is now using a Palm Treo. Years ago, he used the Time Design planner.

      Lotus Notes Now

      I believe they use Lotus Notes now.

      I was at the RoadMap seminar a couple years ago and he gave a glimpse of his system which was in the Palm Desktop at the time. I was amazed, and I mean utterly amazed, at how simple it seemed. But it was complete!

      They also have a mock up of their suggested paper planner in a 3-ring binder. I had the same reaction. Really, really simple.

      Maybe they're onto something?

        David went from a Time Design paper system to the Palm Desktop in conjunction with the Treo 700p, which I believe he still uses for his personal system. For groupware, the David Allen Company uses Lotus Notes.

          David and palm desktop

          Any idea how David sets up palm for GTD. I have recently gone back to palm after having used it years ago. I find for calendar and contacts it works best. I have committed to going vanilla this time instead of getting a bunch of programs that are supposed to make you more productive. I use a mac so i wanted to set up with Missing Sync for ICal and address book but using palm desktop is probably the most vanilla you can go.

          For task and contexts i find that paper works the best! I am in the process of setting up a simple 3-ring binder with tabs for simple contexts @computer, @work, @home, ......I have been tinkering for some time so we will see how it goes as i prepare to go back as a teacher for another school year!

          Thanks,

          MTF

            If you check around, there is a white paper or article somewhere on the site that describes David's setup on his palm. It's a pdf you can download.

              I believe this is the article you're referring to: Palm Organizer - How David Uses His (PDF)

              Best wishes,

                  You can download that pdf for free. You have to `buy' it for $0 so it seems a bit complicated but it eventually just downloads.
