I've read David Allen's "Getting Things Done" for the second time and gone all in on implementing the system. The only area I feel the system and guidance are a bit weak on is planning your day-to-day and moment-to-moment choices for next actions. [more inside]

A few years ago, I used to frequently use a website I liked that implemented Getting Things Done. I stopped using it, and I don't know why. I think it would be useful to start using it again. I remember aspects of the interface, but I've been unable to find it, unfortunately. Please help me find it. [more inside]

As soon as I write something down, I forget about it. This is very problematic for to-do lists... because as soon as I write down a thing I want to do, I no longer feel like doing it and find it uninteresting to even think about (because hey, I wrote it down, so I no longer have to think about it). Help me hack my motivation to overcome this. [more inside]
If I wrote down all the witty/funny/odd/insightful things that cross my mind all day long, I'd have tons of ideas for creative projects. The problem: I'm missing the part of my brain that says "Hey, write that down!" [more inside]

Am about to buy crappy (but shiny refurbished) Lenovo laptop for my writer bro. Because he's been wanting to devote a single alienatingly bare-bones machine to ONLY word processing, rather than continuing (and failing) to get stuff done on the distractingly multitasking Mac he currently has. (He uses Scrivener and occasionally Open Office rather than MS Word.) Are crappy laptops able to handle super-heavy word-processing? [more inside]

Should I buy a stand-alone labeler (with built-in keyboard) or a labeler that attaches to my Macintosh? Recommendations for specific models would be great. [more inside]
I have many great ideas but I am a terrible personal and professional implementer. How can I do better now?
GTD-filter: I'm trying to organize my (academic) work life using GTD. I've read through the book, and it sounds like it can help me a lot. I am thinking of using my Macbook as my folder system, but I can't seem to find an app that works the way I want. [more inside]

As a new convert to Getting Things Done, I want to incorporate the GTDTiddlyWiki into my Palm Tungsten T. In order to do that I need a web browser of some sort but can't seem to find one that is A.) free and B.) designed for the Palm. Any suggestions for an application I could download? Is this even possible?
