Here is the GTD book that people who want to participate might want to buy (certainly not needed to participate but could be useful):

http://www.amazon.co...p/product/0142000280
it's only $9 and is in most bookstores.

so if you want to pariticpate, and the project starts SEP 1, order now.

SIGN UP HERE TO PARTICIPATE

Are you not working as efficiently as you could be?
Do you want to learn how to bettter manage your time and energy, and not waste time thinking about useless stuff?

Join the Club! Literally!

Lots of us on the forum are interested in the Getting Things Done approach to time management and working more efficiently.  So we are going to spend three months, from September 1 to December 1 practicing GTD principles, and sharing our experience.

We'll have an informal "coach" of sorts available to help people who want to participate.

If you want to participate, please post here announcing your intentions to do so.
Please take this seriously, and only sign up here if you are serious about spending three months following GTD approach with some committment to stick to it for the entire period.

Overview of GTD:

So who's in?

Don't worry, we'll help you with this. :D. GTD proposes that you dump all the things you have lurking around in your head to some other media: paper, a file, whatever. That's a start. Sometimes just doing this will help. Looking the stuff you need to get done helps planning. Plus it feels like a relief.

If you complete the experiment and don't fall off the wagon you will earn a badge designed by hamradio, like the programming school badges.
