I think my mom could use a Hipster PDA! If anything, she’d love the calendar idea! I hope Javier makes his calendar template downloadable. The least I could do is print the cards for her, then she could fill them out as she pleases. Ooh, I’m bubbling with excitement! Anyone wanna further my thought process?
I printed the GTD Desktop Signal onto a 5″ x 8″ card – pretty nifty!
If you’ve been utilizing the GTD system for awhile, can you point me to your favorite articles, resources and programs?
- I’d love Palm OS suggestions
- I use DateBk5 and HandyShopper, in addition to the standard apps
- I’m a college student
- I don’t care if you’re redundant – that shows when something is really popular and/or important
I used most of Friday, Saturday, and Sunday to collecting stuff into my inbox in my quest to be more efficient using the GTD system. Monday was the day I started to process a lot of it. I took four trips to the dumpster (because my trash can is only 7 gallons).
For the most part, I think I’m making great headroom. I think my file drawer needs purging, because that hasn’t been done in at least a year, like the book recommends. However, I’m going to stay the course and keep going through my inbox. I don’t have too much further to go.
Ooh, I should use lists: O.F. Jay-style!
- I made some folders for projects. It’s definitely weird because they might only require two small steps, and yet I’d still call them a “project”.
- I’m liking the labeler, but now I have a bunch of avery labels I’m not sure I’ll use. (You know, the ones that you print in mass-production on sheets?)
- Also, I’m reading how David Allen uses his Palm organizer into his system. I’ve converted the task categories like he’s done (my old system stunk), but I’m not sure how to categorize the calendar. I’m sure I’ll figure out something.
- I have a lot of miscellaneous supplies and nowhere to store them. What to do?
I was so compelled that I went to Borders earlier this afternoon to buy “Getting Things Done” by David Allen. I’m in chapter 3, and very impressed with what I’m learning so far.
