WHAT IS GTD?
For all the trendy planners, task managers, organizational systems, and apps, there’s not a tool in the world that will make you more productive or efficient. But you have big dreams and a lot to accomplish, so you know you need something to push yourself forward and achieve more.
Since 2001, the Getting Things Done approach has guided those in search of more with self-reliant methods to achieve focus and freedom. The goal is to not just get more done, but to apply dedicated thought and action to the things that matter. As a proven, global methodology for productivity and time management, GTD instills everything you need to bring order to chaos and achieve more of what matters to you.

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
"A completely revised and updated edition of the blockbuster bestseller from 'the personal productivity guru'" — Fast Company
Since it was first published over 20 years ago, David Allen’s Getting Things Done has become one of the most influential business books of its era, and the ultimate book on personal organization. “GTD” is now shorthand for an entire way of approaching professional and personal tasks, and has spawned an entire culture of websites, organizational tools, seminars, and offshoots.
In 2015, David revised the book from start to finish, tweaking his classic text with important perspectives on the new workplace, and adding material that made the book fresh and relevant for years to come. This new edition of Getting Things Done is welcomed not only by its hundreds of thousands of existing fans but also by a whole new generation eager to adopt its proven principles.
COACHING ON THE GTD FUNDAMENTALS
Five clear steps that apply order to chaos
STEP ONE: CAPTURE
Collect what has your attention
Write, record, or gather any and everything that has your attention into a collection tool.
STEP TWO: CLARIFY
Process what it means
Is it actionable? If so, decide the next action and project (if more than one action is required). If not, decide if it is trash, reference, or something to put on hold.
STEP THREE: ORGANIZE
Put it where it belongs
Park reminders of your categorized content in appropriate places. For example, create lists for calls to make, errands to run, emails to send, etc.
STEP FOUR: REFLECT
Update and review all pertinent system contents to regain control and focus. Do a Weekly Review to clean up, update your lists, and clear your mind.
STEP FIVE: ENGAGE
Use your trusted system to make action decisions with confidence and clarity.
