I've heard so much of this GTD online, but as someone who doesn't know much about it, I'm curious how people got into it, especially since I'm a completely unorganized person. Did you first read his book?

pinky the first

you're not paying this guy are you? I'm sure you could teach him a thing or two. you get more done in an hour than most people do in a whole lifetime, while doing things most people wouldn't dare to do. I think you should go here
http://www.futuresearch.net/method/methodology/lessons/why_fs_works.cfm and see about becoming a future search facilitator. you'd be really good at it.
Ms. future. now, back to the present.


Okay, I just read http://www.davidco.com/what_is_gtd.php. Am I wrong or is this just a page-and-a-half long way of saying, "When your life gets a little stressful, making lists of what to do will help"?

Luv ya to death, Heather, but I gotta say my bullshit-o-meter was pretty much pegged on that one. Personally, I've found this to be much more effective: http://www.mtbachelor.com/mountain_services/ ;-)

(I'm sorry, I should be more supportive, but *damn* someone has to be the curmudgeon around here!)


At first glance GTD might seem no more than a glorified to-do list. What it really does is extend the daily to-do list significantly. It adds functionality to manage the list on different levels. But mostly the concept of clearing up psychic RAM to use your brain the way you want to use it - for thinking and being creative, solving problems. Not reminding you of all the things you have to do and various feelings of guilt or anxiety you have when you don't get through your list. Really, check out David Allen's book: Getting Things Done. It's quite interesting.
And Pinky, yeah, I do get more done than most, so just imagine how much I'm getting done now...


Oh, a friend told me about the technique and suggested I read the book. I've read about 60 pages in it and I've been using the technique for over a month and noticed a dramatic improvement with being able to manage my life, projects and manifestations.
