  • A general summary of the GTD approach/system

    A few years ago I read a summary of the GTD method. I was impressed by what I read. I now want to put it to use, but have forgotten many of the details.

    I am wondering if anyone can point me to that paper or one like it. As I recall it was about 5 or 6 pages in PDF format. I may have pulled it from the David Allen site, but can't find it now.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Toph.

    Don't know that this is the one you read, but it certainly fits your request:
    Basic Guidelines: Getting Things Done - The Art of Stress Free Productivity by David Allen

      Buy the book. The title is Getting Things Done, and the author is David Allen. The book not only takes you through the theory, it will also lead you by the hand through "booting up" your system. Your bookstore probably has a copy. If not, they can order it for you. If you don't want to leave your delighful home, Amazon will drop a copy on your doorstep.

      Don't worry about the cost. It's cheap. And when you count in all the time you would otherwise spend going down blind alleys, this book is the bargain of the century.

        Even the summary (see link in my post above) strongly recommended buying the book!

          Whether or not you buy the book, buy the FAST CD set.

          It's the best $90+ I believe I've ever spent. It probably will be for you, too, provided ou listen to it several times.

          I've had the CD set about 7 weeks, have listened to it all the way through a half-dozen times, and I still replay parts of it to jog my memory on key elements.
