You may know that David Allen uses eProductivity. It’s also the GTD app of choice for his staff at the David Allen Company. If you use Lotus Notes, eProductivity is well worth a look. It’s the only app for IBM Lotus software to receive the GTD Enabled designation.
Get a rare look inside David Allen’s personal GTD system in the next webinar hosted by GTD Connect. You’ll see how he’s customized his lists and examples of what he uses them for. It’s a great opportunity to see GTD in action and spark your own creative ideas for customizing your system.
March 10th from 11am-12pm Pacific Time. Login to GTD Connect and register through the link on the home page. Open to all GTD Connect members, including those on a two-week guest pass.
Eric Mack will discuss productivity with the DC Lotus User Group next Wednesday, November 17th. Eric supplements his deep background in Lotus Notes with a broad understanding of knowledge management. His eProductivity application expands the organizational capabilities of Lotus Notes to make it a powerful tool for personal productivity. eProductivity is the only Lotus Notes application to earn the “GTD-Enabled” designation from David Allen. If you’ve been implementing GTD in Notes already, you’ll be amazed how much more streamlined it is with eProductivity.
Highly recommended if you will be in the DC area next week.
As many of you know, David is an enthusiastic fan of Lotus Notes with eProductivity. Here’s a 4 minute video of the transformation of an executive David coached who implemented GTD along with eProductivity (and the amazing ripple effect that also had on his direct reports.)
Q: How did you organize your tasks? Am I supposed to have a main Projects category and corresponding action tasks categorized @home, @work, etc?
David Allen: Yes, my Next Action lists are To-Do categories in Lotus Notes. “Projects” is a category, just like the Action lists of “Calls” “At Computer” etc. They are simply flat lists, tied together with your review of the whole system.

Does your employer block productivity apps on your BlackBerry, iPhone, or Android Smartphone?
With the recent discussions about Apps and how consumers want the freedom to find, evaluate, and purchase Apps for their Smartphones, I wonder how many users are able download and use a productivity application and how many have policies that prevent them from doing so.
If you found a productivity application for your mobile device that was proven to increase your performance, would you: a) be allowed to install it? b) encounter resistance (or refusal) from IT to allow you to install it? c) make a business case to management for why this App should be allowed?
Please take a moment to take the quick poll then scroll down to share your comments.
How much more creative could you have been in the last 24 hours? Are your tools working as catalysts for your creative thinking? Hear David Allen’s perspective on computers helping us think and why eProductivity for Lotus Notes is forging a new frontier.
A challenge for many GTDers is how to have a trusted system among several discrete software systems. Typically the situation arises in the workplace where either Outlook or Lotus Notes exists, plus other systems that may be CRMs, databases, or dashboard and reporting tools. Additionally, the workplace systems might not be convenient or available for one’s personal life.
My system was working great for me. My lists were in Omnifocus on my MacBook Pro and iPhone. I used web-based Gmail, and I would copy the URL for an email and paste its hyperlink into the note field of an item in Omnifocus. I used iCalendar that syncs to Google Calendar. I also used a David Allen Note Taker wallet for my ubiquitous capture tool.
Being hired by David Allen Company created significant problems to my tidy GTD ecosystem. [Read more →]
