Making GTD work for you
Exploring some GTD tools
Getting Things Done (GTD) is a productivity method helping people manage all the things they have to do each day. Created by productivity guru David Allen, it was designed to give people a way to handle all their to-dos, tasks, responsibilities and ideas in an effective and productive manner.
Not for the faint-hearted, GTD is a detailed system with a structure for everything – it even has a place for your spare underpants. If you invest the time in implementing this system and learn its ways, the rewards will stay with you long after the spare pants do.
The GTD method pivots around a workflow system to manage your daily tasks, responsibilities and projects so that they all get air time and ultimately get done.
