Trying to Get “Getting Things Done” Done
I went ahead and downloaded the (donationware) app, and started messing around. So far, I’m liking it and it’s proven to be pretty useful as far as helping me manage my tasks. I was intrigued by the Quicksilver integration, though I’m mostly just getting my feet wet adding a few projects and tasks, here and there.
The app itself is modeled after David Allen’s book Getting Things Done, and it seemed like a good time for me to revisit my initial impulse to try out Allen’s ideas and processes.
Embarassingly, I got the book in March and I’ve only gotten through the first half of the book. It’s been sitting, unattended, on a shelf for a good while now. My goal is to now eschew most of the philosophy/theory up front, and concentrate more on the actual/practical implementation of getting things out of my head… and into some trusted systems that I review.
As I said before, we’ll see what happens. Wish me luck.
