Implementing The Secret Weapon (Getting Things Done)

I’ve been researching for over a year about how to be more efficient, and take my productivity to another level…and I’ve locked in on a methodology called GTD: Getting Things Done. You can learn about it at www.davidco.com, but the best overview to the GTD concepts is a presentation the founder of GTD did at Google back in 2007.  Check it out below (It’s a long overview…this is 45 min).

GTD has many different implementation models, apps you can buy, etc. I have been trying to decide what tool to use, because I have very specific criteria which is centered around using Evernote. I was only looking at apps/services that had extensive Evernote integration…until now.

I have found The Secret Weapon

…and yes, that is what it is called. They have created the “seemingly” perfect system, using Evernote itself…no additional app to buy, or even integrate. AND Evernote is essentially free.

I just checked it out…and I’m all in. And I think it will help you too. ( I know this sounds all info-mercially…sorry)

So I thought it would be great to chronicle my experience setting this up in a series of posts entitled The Secret Weapon.  Stay tuned.

    For implementing GTD you can use this web-application:

    Gtdagenda .com

    You can use it to manage your goals, projects and tasks, set next actions and contexts, use checklists, and a calendar.
    Syncs with Evernote and Google Calendar, and also comes with mobile version, and Android and iPhone apps.
