GTD wannabee

While I get on with my own foray into the world of Getting Things Done, here's a useful piece from Black Belt Productivity
I actually didn’t find implementing GTD too painful. I made sure to read the book through all the way first, and then went back and skimmed where required. To be honest, most of what’s in there is plain common sense, but it were so common, everybody would have some. I immediately instituted the concept of writing everything down, using contexts, using my calendar as a hard landscape, and instituting a general filing system. I had a home filing system, but I also had stacks of one-off things that didn’t deserve their own file folders. GTD changed that.
