General Questions

What is GTD?

GTD™ or Getting Things Done™ is an method created by David Allen for action and time management. It is described in his book "Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity". This method helps to defeat procrastination and is very useful in personal task management.

The main idea of GTD is that task should be done by removing them from memory and recording externally to free mind from the necessity to remember everything that needs to be done.

Two-minute rule invented by David Allen described below:

If the Next Action can be done in 2 minutes or less, do it when you first pick the item up. Even if that item is not a "high priority", because it takes longer to store and track any item than to deal with it the first time its in your head. - David Allen, Getting Things Done, p.191
