Getting things done

A Berkeley based customer recently pointed out that her Trinote is compatible with the Getting Things Done system: “I maintain my to-do list elsewhere and use the calendar for scheduled events.

The Getting Things Done, or GTD, system is David Allen‘s celebrated productivity and time management system; according to Allen’s website, it “transforms personal overwhelm and overload into an integrated system of stress-free productivity” (sounds pretty good, right?). I’ve never read the book, but the simplicity of the system is definitely attractive. Here’s how Wikipedia explains it:

GTD rests on the principle that a person needs to move tasks out of the mind by recording them somewhere. That way, the mind is freed from the job of remembering everything that needs to be done, and can concentrate on actually performing those tasks. What distinguishes GTD from other time- or action-management systems is the idea of grouping tasks by the context (defined as a place or set of available resources) in which they are to be performed.

Do you use the GTD system with your Quo Vadis planner? Let us know in the comments!
