    Hi Geoff, actually I have the book “Getting things done” by david Allen (in German translation) right here on my desk. It’s a small world, isn’t it? But the funny thing is, I keep reading the book, but I don’t follow it strictly. I do read this book and others like it “Clear your clutter with Feng Shui” and “Simplify your life” just to motivate myself. But then I follow a more instinctive approach. If I like something very much (like doing videos), I will figure out how to do it eventually:-)

    Thanks Woggyflush! Small world indeed. :) I am curious to read Getting Things Done. Maybe it is available online? I like how you synthesize and are influenced by these great books and then find your own way that suits you best! I try to do a similar thing :)

    P.S. For “to motivate yourself”, there is a common German expression “to overcome your inner pig-dog” (“den inneren Schweinehund besiegen”). Don’t ask me how a pig-dog looks like! It’s just an expression. The pig-dog (“Schweinehund”) is something inside you (like a small devil perhaps) that stops you from being excellent, the pig-dogs wants you to be lazy, sitting on the couch and watching TV instead of jogging in the park etc. You can never kill the pig-dog, just oppress it for a while…

    Cool! I find drinking lots of orange juice scares away my Schweinehund :) I drink about a litre a day or more! thanks Woggyflush :)

    I found that I had a nasty habit of forgetting things I needed to get done when they were available to me (when I’m at home), but remembering them at inconvenient times (while in transit). I started to force myself to write things down in GTasks the moment I thought of them so that I wouldn’t forget. It’s nice that it syncs between my phone and computer, but it sounds like the apps you mention have many more features… I’m not sure about you, but I find it somewhat satisfying to knock down an item in the list, no matter how small it is.

    Thanks Martin! Yes I find the same thing about the feeling of satisfaction and the remembering.

    Geoff, we’d like to invite you to a new productivity and GTD app called IQTELL. Our app runs Evernote with to-do lists, all your email and calender accounts, bookmarks and much more, in one place.

    The app has a GTD workflow module already installed on it but you can customize any workflow on the app. To register go to our site at and we’d happily give you an “app grand tour!” ;)
