Getting Things Done is a productivity methodology created by David Allen and our own Emory Lundberg has jumped in with both feet.

This paper is nothing more than a summary and use-case of implementing David Allen’s Getting Things Done™ (GTD) using both hifi and lofi weaponry with a primary focus on Mac OS X but the general desire to be as desktop platform agnostic as possible, except where not possible.
The author puts portability, mobility, and efficiency above all other considerations. The author is an information security researcher and engineer for a large organization with offices around the globe, as well as a consultant, and a freelance writer. Due to the very nature of the author’s responsibilities, a suitable workflow to implement GTD was difficult to accomplish.
As something of a (wince) subject-matter expert for mobile tech specifically relating to Mac OS X and wireless connectivity this paper is decidedly low-tech. Presently the online methods for implementing GTD are deemed by the author to be not mobile-friendly and the author places the utmost importance on accessibility and reliability.
For most of my friends at 43Folders this will read like an erotic novel. Hello, everyone!
This is my trusted system. I trust it. It works for me. It has helped me sleep better, work better, play better, and live a much better life. With all things related to productivity, it comes down to what works for you.
