More than a year ago, I published the GTD with Gmail Whitepaper here on space-age wasteland. Some very minor (but very confusing) errors were pointed out and I have revised the document. Here it is.
The GTD with Gmail Whitepaper gets a mention in Wikipedia (Principles of GTD Organization) and an external link. It’s pretty awesome that the author mentioned me by name. I love the smell of The Long Tail. A (quite infrequent) review of Google Analytics showed a big spike in traffic (zero-something) referred from en.wikipedia.org and I […]
Remember my iBook hard drive issue? I’ve had a feeling since it happened that it was related to heat. I was having some connectivity issues this morning and noticed that the region directly above my keyboard was hot to the touch. I started googling, of course, and ran across this (significantly old, but useful) information. […]
Check out this beautiful little URL: fancy! This brings me to my Next Action list. Big deal, right? Well let’s rope in some other technology (that I’m already using) to sweeten the pot of gold: I posted the aforementioned URL into del.icio.us (a social bookmark manager that you definitely should be using) so it can […]
My good friend Jonathan over at Stark Raving Calm has put together a quick howto on the next step of GTD with Gmail: implementation of the tickler using Futuremail. Be sure to check it out. It’s certainly an action on my plan.
For everyone who asked, the whitepaper is here. Special thanks to Greg and Jonathan for looking it over for me and making suggestions. It’s still far from a perfectly complete guide to GTD with Gmail, so I guess any additions or ideas from this point can go into version 2 of the whitepaper or into […]
Thanks for reading! It looks like the only thing I have to answer is the resounding request to create a white paper of this feature. This I will do (it’s already a next action). Since I haven’t had time to organize that yet you’ll have to be patient with me for a few days, but […]
It’s time for the practical demonstration of GTD with Gmail. If you’re just joining us, please skip down and read parts I-IV. First, collection. Theoretically we start and end with a clean inbox. I try to never leave Gmail with anything in my inbox (that’s much easier now that I’ve implemented GTD with Gmail). So […]
After a busy weekend I’m back for the next installment of GTD with Gmail: Review and Do. These steps should be close to self-explanatory by now, but I’ll brush through “my way” on them real quick so we can get to the step-by-step howto with screen shots (good idea, Martin). Just give me a few […]
For the second half of the processing phase of GTD with Gmail (make sure you read parts I and II first), we’ll discuss how the Gmail inbox is identical to David Allen’s vision of the GTD inbox and how processing and organization nearly become one seamless step. “In to Empty” is the main idea (I’m […]
