Frequently asked questions.

Got questions? We have got answers. Here are some common questions asked.

What makes GTD different from other time management techniques?

David Allen, the author of Getting Things Done, has proposed a fundamentally different approach. David argues that what is required is not elusive time management but really self management–what we do with ourselves in any situation or context, time being just one variable. It involves dealing effectively with all of the things we have to do and want to do, both personally and professionally.

GTD is about capturing things we collect and create, deciding what (if anything) we want to do about them, organising the results of that knowledge work into a trusted system we can review appropriately and making intuitive strategic and tactical choices about what to do at any point in time from our options. In this way, GTD provides a comprehensive approach for increasing productivity while decreasing stress.

How is attending a seminar better than just reading the book?

Reading the book will definitely help you get started. In fact, many people who come to the seminar have already read the book (though it is not required). While the book is great from a knowledge perspective, the seminars help from a practical point of view. It is designed as a workshop where you actually start implementing GTD and get immediate feedback from the seminar leader and the many participants in the room, who coach one another on fundamental behaviours throughout the course.

It is the difference between knowing something and actually doing it correctly. You will also gain key best practices for implementing GTD, presented in a variety of formats to accommodate many different learning styles.

I'm already quite productive. Can GTD really help me?

Although time management and effectiveness training can sometimes seen for those "not efficient and productive", GTD is different. It is frequently adopted as part of high-potential and partner-track programmes because it consistently helps some of the brightest, busiest, and most ambitious people to get more done. Furthermore, it often makes high performance more sustainable over the long term. Often, with increased performance comes increased satisfaction.

Why do people so enthusiastically recommend GTD?

If you got to this site because someone recommended “this GTD thing” to you, you’re not alone. If you discovered something that consistently helped you to get more done with less stress, wouldn’t you be pretty enthusiastic too? No matter what claims others have made for their adoption of GTD, we recommend you try it out on a practical basis to see what applying GTD can do for you.
