Well, I went out and bought the GTD book today. Let’s see if I can finish reading it in a reasonable amount of time.
So far, it seems like a worthwhile read, not just some mushy new-age stuff, or patently obvious stuff, or completely impractical advice that would never work in the real world. It does seem to contain practical advice that might actually be useful in my day-to-day work.
I’m kind of curious about how I might get some of this to work with my existing software tools. I’m currently managing my priority list via my Lotus Notes inbox, using follow-up flags. That’s not the best system possible, but it has the advantage of residing directly in the system where most of my to-do list items originate (i.e. e-mails from other people).
