Click here to listen to a short, 5 minute podcast from David Allen for getting started with the GTD System.  Admittedly, David over simplifies getting started, but his point is valid – people make this way too complicated.

It is not so much about the “what” as it is about the “why” and “how.”  Don’t spend so much time fussing with your smartphone apps, or laptop tools, or fancy daytimers.  Keep it simple! A pen and paper is really all you need to make this work for you.  Once you get the basics of ubiquitous capture, inbox, processing and review down you will be ready for the complexity of the commercialization of GTD.

Good luck! And if you do have a question about GTD why not post it here?
