Your Browser is a Productivity Tool

Date: Sunday, April 08, 2012 by GTD Times Staff

From the Business Center at PC World, GTD is listed as a browser-compatible productivity system. That will be a relief to those who don’t want to be tied to any specific device, or to a paper planner.

Can a cloud-based productivity system work for you? Or are there times when you have to have your calendar, projects, and actions at hand because the cloud is out of range?

Getting Things Done

We rely far too much on our imperfect memories to help us organize tasks and get work done. Trying to keep track of multiple projects leads to human error as we forget important tasks and waste time worrying over which project we should be working on at any given moment.

The solution: As soon as you remember a task, write it down so that your fallible, distractable brain isn’t the only place where you’re storing a record of it. This is the core principle of Getting Things Done. If you use it while working online, identifying your next task is a simple matter of consulting your to-do list.

    No cloud possible here. 2 reasons security and access. Rural areas do not have constant access to high speed (or sometimes any speed) internet and I don’t want critical or private information on any system or server I do not control.

    Case in point, was on a trip yesterday where we spent 6 hours out of any cell phone range at all so no possibility of cloud systems in use.

    Lots of folks assume the US has ubiquitous internet access which is false.
