A Black Belt GTD Setup

A Black Belt GTD Setup

Michael Ramm has shared his setup on getting things done. I think this is a good start for anyone who just read Getting Things Done and want to get started on selecting the tools and the implementation. He uses Moleskine large 18-month Weekly Planner, DIYPlanner’s Combined Actions template in index card, and also using Evernote software for notes:

am finally ready to roll out my new trusted system. It has been a long time in development, but I feel that this will be a better implementation fo me. I am also committing to use it as described for the rest of 2006. I am one that is always looking for new, cool things to add to my system. I am going to take notes on things that are cool and re-evaluate them in January.

So, on with the system:

The centerpiece will be my new Moleskine Large 18-month Weekly Planner/Notebook. I will be using this as my Calendar and will keep my weekly to-dos, any waiting for’s, and and a current project list on the notebook pages. I am going to adopt the metatagging from both Bill Westerman’s system and Mike Rohdes’ system. I am going to use a icon to describe the state of the NA. I will use a square icon (like Westerman) for Professional actions, and a circle (like Rohde) for Personal actions. Then I will use the same check, slash, X, dot system that Westerman outlines in his article…

One of the good finds for me is the Evernote software. I guess this software itself worths to introduce in a separate post.

Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

  • Gather new material, both specific and general.
  • The Mental Digestive Process
  • Drop it
  • Poof, the idea appears
  • Work it

Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
