GTD Coach on Google Tools

GTD Coach on Google Tools

Kelly Forrister, a facilitator and coach at David Allen & Co., shares her GTD system with Google tools. As she is a fan of Google software, she tries to integrate many tools, like Google Personalized Homepage, Spreadsheet, Calendar, and Mail into her workflow. A notable implementation is her Google Mail setup:

For Google Mail, I’ve been testing out a pretty straightforward approach. I created two key pending lables:
@Actions and @Waiting For

….then a label for each current project. When processing mail, if something is actionable or waiting, it gets either the @Action or @Waiting label as well as the Project label if it’s related to a current project. Every email gets archived after it gets labeled to maintain zero in the Inbox (because it takes less effort to work from a place of zero in the Inbox than to keep anything in the Inbox as your only reminder.) For non-actionable stuff that needs to be saved, it simply gets archived.

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.
