My firm uses Daylite software (from Marketcircle) as the core of our GTD system, but there are many other applications you can use. Without the knowledge of Allen''s method, however, you won't get as much out if the software you use to manage your tasks.
The book is easy to read, and relatively short, with no fluff or filler whatsoever. Everyone should read this book. I've read it twice now.
I quickly became aware that most software that is meant to handle your to-dos is totally inadequate for use with the GTD system, so when I got a new iPod for Christmas, I bought "Toodledo" for my to-do management. Its entire structure is built around the GTD system. WOW! What a difference!
I also bought a new front end for the "Calendar" that comes with the iPod. It's called "PocketLife." It enters all its data into the same database that the original Calendar uses, so anything entered with "PocketLife" also appears in "Calendar." It gets backed up the same way.
It overcomes a weakness in the original "Calendar." It now allows me to enter events of the type that occur on the fourth Thursday of April, or on the first Tuesday after the first Monday of November (election day).
The reason I gave the book 5 stars was because I found more than 1 thing that will help me be more productive and efficient. Even if you only learn one thing from his book and even if that one thing only saves you 1 hour per week, it is still worth the investment of reading this book.
The book has allowed me to clear my mind of many items and to become even more productive when it comes to e-mails and tasks. Before reading this book, I thought I was fairly efficiency but the extra tips and tricks really help.
