  • My car navigation uses GTD!

    Recently I've discovered that my car navigation uses GTD methodology to perform its tasks!

    My car navigation puts each defined trip destination on its Someday/Maybe list.

    When I decide to drive to one of the defined destinations my car navigation moves it from the Someday/Maybe list to the Projects list and determines:
    • the Successful Outcome (the car reached the destination);
    • the Next Action (for example "turn left").
    My car navigation uses two @contexts for its operation:
    • @standing - when the car does not move (relax);
    • @moving - when the car moves (provide driving directions).
    It is important - my car navigation focuses on one Next Action at a time - on providing just the very next hint - it does not try to tell me the whole travel plan.

    When I do not follow the directions my car navigation does not complain - it just creates a new plan to reach the destination as efficiently as possible and returns to the Next Action processing loop.

    Where Possible, Make a Legal U-Turn...!

    And it's OK if you go the wrong way - you just "make a legal U-turn" and head back in the direction of your dreams! There are no mistakes, just course correction!

      I love this! It's such a good example to explain the very essence of GTD - concentrate on one thing at a time and store everything else to be used when required. I'll be adding this to my informal workshop information to use when I next talk to colleagues about GTD!

        Thank you. It's a simplified GTD model but I think it really explains the essence of David Allen's methodology.

          Programming sat nav

          I took my existing GTD system and programmed it into my sat nav.
          Now I just drive round in circles.
