Best practices for GTD 5 stage workflow

Over the last weekend I’ve spend some time refreshing my GTD(r) system as it got stale.

My lists were out of date, next actions weren’t next action but rather undefined todo items. Project list was in bad condition too. 

Oddly enough the only list that was in relatively good shape was my Waiting For list. This is probably because I have more interest in making sure I get the things I’m waiting for.

Before I began the whole thing I was looking for some nice way to get the GTD principles refreshed in my mind and also some quick tactical tips to get me going. 

GTD times site was a perfect resource for that. Back in 2011 they have published a whole series about the best practices of GTD workflow.

GTD Best Practices: Collect (Part 1 of 5) | GTD Times

GTD Best Practices: Organize (Part 3 of 5) | GTD Times

GTD Best Practices: Review (part 4 of 5) | GTD Times

If you’re stuck in a rut or need quick rundown of main principles and the flow this is fantastic way to get you going.
