Here are three easy ways to get started with Getting Things Done ®

Follow the Five Steps

Follow the Five Steps to capture, clarify and organise all your commitments. Build a system that you regularly review and engage with to give you peace of mind and total control.

Read the Book

Since it was first published almost fifteen years ago, Getting Things Done has become one of the most influential business books of its era, and the ultimate book on personal organisation. GTD is now shorthand for an entire way of approaching professional and personal tasks, and has spawned an entire culture of websites, organisational tools, seminars, and offshoots.

Now you can get this updated edition of the original "manual" for GTD, with detailed overviews, examples and coaching advice to get your system up and running. This revised 2015 edition also contains new material on the rise of digital technology in our always-on world, and recent cognitive science research that validates the GTD methodology.


How well are you doing with your control and perspective? Are you a Crazy Maker, Captain and Commander, Responder, or Micro Manager? In less than two minutes, the GTD-Q® will give you visual results about your current reality, describe your strengths, and offer opportunities for improvement.

Your results will change, as your control and perspective shifts, so you can retake the assessment as often as you like.
