    A friend recently quoted the line "keep your friends close and your enemies closer" - I don't remember where it's from - but my GTD saturated brain immediately replied with:

    "Keep your action lists close and your capture tool closer."

    And I actually kinda like it

    One day I may ask a favour of you....

    The line is from the Godfather.

      Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.

        I love the adaptation to GTD of the quote... keep your actions close and your capture tool closer. That's officially GTD-geek level.

          An excellent GTD Quote...

          He who every morning plans the transaction of the day and follows out that plan, carries a thread that will guide him through the maze of the most busy life. But where no plan is laid, where the disposal of time is surrendered merely to the chance of incidence, chaos will soon reign.

            Hmmm...The Godfather...Sun-tzu...Are you sure it wasn't Snoopy or Dilbert or maybe even that wise cat, Hobbes?

              And another one, with apologies to the marines:
              "semper conficiunt" - always productive

              You could even shorten it to "semper co"

              I promise to stop doing this
