GTD Essentials


It all starts with the book: “Getting Things Done” by David Allen. He has recently published a new edition. (Affiliate links: I receive a small commission at no additional cost to you if you click through and make a purchase with an affiliate link. Thank you for your support!)

GTD has been described as a “multi-dimensional todo list”

  1. For implementing GTD you might try out this new web-based application:


    You can use it to manage your goals, projects and tasks, set next actions and contexts, use
    checklists, schedules and a calendar.
    A mobile version is available too.

    As with the last update, now Gtdagenda has due date for tasks (you’ll see in the calendar on the right if you have tasks due today), task notes, and Email & Print support.

    Hope you like it.
