A call to GTD practitioners: An invitation to share your top questions, tips, and insights

Over the last year or so I've had the pleasure of receiving email and phone inquiries from people having various challenges implementing David Allen's Getting Things Done methodology [1]. Along the way I've been collecting the frequent questions, tips, and insights that have come up, with the goal of continuing to share them [2] with others adopting the system.

This collection seems to be reaching a tipping point, and as part of a new project I'm soliciting your favorite "aha," insight, or question that most dogged you before you made the system click. I'll be sharing the results (with surprises and answers, of course!) in a future work, and I'd be very grateful for your input.

So how about it? What information wasn't clear from reading the book, but helped you the most? Was it dealing with too many next actions? A tool or gadget that you found crucial? Maybe blocking time for the "heavy lifting?" Or was there something that just didn't make sense to you?

I'd love to hear what you have to say. Please leave a comment below or send your wisdom to gtdtips@matthewcornell.org, and stay tuned for the results. Cheers!

Matt, your articles and especially your links always give me fruit for thought on future articles and references. This is another one. I look forward to the outcome. I think my biggest moment was at work when I really allocated a morning for every week to do a weekly review. It was hard, it was though, it was confronting. But it made soooo much sense to me after a few weeks. I am currently looking for the time I need for my weekly review, since I work less hours a week but still have tons of stuff to do. I miss my weekly review now. It's like that feeling you get when you forget to brush your teeth. You know you can have a better feeling because you have "been there"...
