Welcome back to the fourth part of my personal overview of the Getting Things Done productivity system created by David Allen. It’s sometimes called GTD.
Please note that the David Allen company does not endorse this series.
Please do check out the original book and audio-book – Getting Things Done written by David Allen. It changed my life for the better and I can’t recommend it enough.
This episode is about organizing all the projects and next actions you have created from the capture and clarifying stages.
Where you put your work should make sense. If you don’t have define places to store your work, then you will end up piling work in random places.
The eight basic categories (or buckets) to store your projects and next actions, are:
- Calendar actions and information
- A projects list
- Project support material
- Next action lists
- A “waiting for” list
- Reference material
- A someday/maybe list.
- Reading or Listening stack
