    This is the way GTD should be implemented.

    I think your GTD-System is up and running in a perfect way, congratulations.

    Yours

      What is a perfect GTD system?

        I would say you know you have the perfect system when you always know exactly what you have to do, when you have to do it, and what the next step is to get you where you want to go.

        Which leads to the conclusion that perfect GTD leads to buddhahood.

          Know exactly what not to do.

          For me GTD is just the opposite - to know exactly what not to do and why (conscious and honest renegotiation).

            I think the answer lies in David Allen's definition (http://www.davidco.com/what_is_gtd.php) that mentions the outcome.

            Perfect GTD is whatever system/process/approach/modus operandi that helps you achieve "this relaxed, productive state" [of mind, body, ans spirit].

              I prefer trying to think more along the lines of a system that is functioning well, or extremely well. But at the same time, its ok if it functions poorly sometimes as well, as long as its functioning at all.
              Exactly.

                When I have stuff that doesn't fit into my inbox, I'll usually just write "deal with the envelope from ABC that's on the side table" on a sheet of paper and stick that in the inbox. Keeps the item in my queue to be processed without demolishing the stuff that's under it in the inbox.
