  • GTD thriller?

    Saw a book displayed in the New Fiction Section of my local Barnes and Noble yesterday, called "The Two Minute Rule." My heart skipped a beat. At last someone has written a novel in which the characters use GTD! I imagined the hero checking his @Computer list before hacking into the villains' computer network, or perhaps leaping into a car holding his neatly labelled file folders (having processed his inbox to empty in the previous scene).

    Sadly, after inspection I saw that the book is just another thriller - the title refers to a rule that bank robbers rely on to get in and out quickly. I guess this book will end up on my Someday/Maybe list instead.

    ...or the detective distinguished the real criminal from the prime suspect by noticing the different ways in which they used GTD...

      So the robbers use GTD. They define the project "rob the bank", then they do all the preliminary work (actions) and finally they've got a 2-minute Next Action "get money from the bank".

      Here is the lesson:

      If you identify a 2-minute Next Action, do it immediately and quickly.
