  • Printable Workflow chart?

    Is there a printable diagram of the workflow chart exactly like the one in the book. The one on DA website does not match the one in the book and I don't like the quality of photocopies.

    Check this chart out...

    Bernard:

    At the risk of not answering your question regarding the original chart, this advanced chart is definitely worth checking out if you haven't see it yet.

    This chart is so cool, that I printed it in high-quality colour, laminated it, and carry it as part of my mobile "current support" file!

      GTD copyright issues.

      Check with David Allen Company if you can use the printouts for your purposes. In his own blog David posted the information about tightening the rules of allowable GTD uses and new strict Intellectual Property policy.

          As I read it, David very clearly said that if it was for personal use and any attribution was to David Allen, there would be no problem. The problem arises when people imply that they have some affiliation with David Allen/GTD OR that they have approval of David for something they have developed, or they are using his or their own materials for personal gain, passing off their materials as GTD/DA approved.

          If you use these guidelines, printing and laminating the workflow chart for personal use is not a problem. I have a folder of newsletter, tips and tools, and coaching printouts for reminders when I begin to lapse and don't have time to read the book. They are motivators for me. Even though they are for personal use, I still add the David Allen copyright at the bottom. It's only fair that David gets credit should someone else ask to see my notes.

            Flow Chart Wallpaper

            I've even heard of some people using the flow chart as their desktop background.

              I did that for while when I was first learning/appying the methodology. Helped a lot.

                  I think the intent of the "300-400 times a day" reference in the advanced workflow chart is to capture and recognize the idea that, in the course of an average day, you are probably faced with several hundred individual "inputs" each of which, under the GTD methodology, require a decision (even a quick one) about next actions and desired outcomes.

                  Processing certain types of work - such as inboxes, emails, and voicemail messages are probably better suited to processing several times a day.

                  Hope this makes sense.

                    Great Idea!
                    I'm a real newbie and just put up this as my 'Home' browser page.
                    ...came from this site, so thanks all for all the pointers.

                      Anyone have a copy of it as a Jpeg? or file wallpaper would work with?
                      The PDF file won't work.
                      You can PM me or email.

                      thanks!

                        Flowchart as wallpaper

                        Use this link: http://www.davidco.com/tips_tools/tip32.html

                        The format allows you to save the flowchart for use as wallpaper.

                          "move closer" portion of advanced flow chart?

                          Hi Folks,

                          I'm brand new to GTD (I'm starting chapter 5 tomorrow) and I had a question about the advanced GTD workflow found here:

                          http://www.davidco.com/pdfs/gtd_workflow_advanced.pdf

                          Under 'COLLECT' at the top it says 'MOVE CLOSER'. Please tell me: What does this refer to? Thanks in advance.

                          matt

                            Ubiquitous Capture Tool... move IT closer to you

                            That's what is symbolized on the workflow diagram - keep your UCT (Ubiquitous capture tool) close at hand. It could be a notepad, a palmpilot, a voice recorder..... or a tatooing device, like the main charachter in the movie "momento".

                            Jeff

                              I like this chart much better, as it uses a bit of negative space to remove the "cluttered" look:
