“Okay, how can I help?” For starters, we’ve included a simple poll below. Let us know how long you’ve been using GTD in your workflow. Secondly, post in the comments, sharing what you’ve seen change since you first started implementing it. How has technology changed things? What has remained the same? What has time taught you?GTD Reviews.com err... Review:
First off I've only found the site now but they sold me on this one review of GTD Implementation Guide
First off, any site that has a large "Talk to Us" button rather than a Twitter button or Facebook button earns an instant plus from me.
I didn't try it and I know it's not the most traffic rewarding thing to add to a site but as a first time surfer who encountered this button...WOW... I know this is nothing to get giddy about from an innovation side but the whole button blew my mind off and that's why I'm reviewing this site. The fact that it's in big bold button shape while still being at the beginning of a sidebar...wow...such things instantly generate trust and respect from me.
Lay-out and design is something I'm ignorant of and while my initial impressions were good, I can't help but get frustrated that I needed to click a link from another blog article just to spot that GTD Implementation Guide review. I'm not sure if it's the dating or that it's due to being a featured article but in some ways, the mild frustration came from how clear and zen-like everything looks initially.
Assuming the above link is the default reviewing template, it gets a plus from me which you'll see in my copy-paste reply to the survey topic below.
However just to walk over why I have a high opinion of the template.What it Does
- +1, everything should start with this if you have a vast knowledge of what you're reviewing.What it Doesn’t Do
- +1000, this is what sold me to the article. If every self-proclaimed knowledgeable reviewer could add this to their reviews, things would be much easier understood by casual curious readers.Who Should Purchase This Guide
It's not going to be popular with many review sites because it's about a reviewer potentially turning customers away from a good product and they often botch up this section anyways but the way it's written gave me a good feeling of trusting this person's reviews. It helps that he had the audacity to bold the key contents of this sub-heading which can be a double edged sword in that it can look like you're focusing on the negative aspects of a product.What's bad
The app comparison link on the bar is easily spottable and it has just a good balance of not so known and well known apps that it works but the whole vertical check list doesn't work.
It just isn't skimmable. Applications are not antivirus software first of all but this also isn't Wikipedia.
People are not looking for in-depth interpretations of what software has what.
People want to understand as easily as possible how each application stack up relative to their needs of GTD.
They don't want to first memorize which application has e-mail and then scroll down just to see which one has printable lists and then scroll up again. A table like this would be better served as a questionnaire that asks what the needs of the GTD searcher are and then show a list of the results at the end of the quiz and then maybe at the end, you show this table with the needs of the searcher highlighted while the other options are grayed out.
Anyways, that's it. The below is just a copy paste of my reply to the survey in case people don't want to click the link to view it.
