Do-It-Yourself GTD Planner v. 0.9

I’m pleased to announce version 0.9 of my Do-It-Yourself GTD Planner system. New this time around are much-improved instructions, numerous graphical and layout tweaks, and three new templates.

This package includes many pages of information (in HTML) on how to buy a planner, save a bundle on templates/forms, set up your organiser GTD-style, and more. The included 26-page PDF file contains a number of double-sided templates including:

  • GTD Diagrams (resized and rotated from originals found at www.davidco.com)
  • Project Outline
  • Objectives
  • Contact Log
  • Next Actions
  • Waiting For
  • Agendas
  • Someday/Maybe
  • Notes
  • Covey Quadrant (new)
  • Brainstorm (new)
  • Story Idea (new)

Suggestions for modifications and new templates are very welcome. I’ll probably release v. 1.0 in another week or so, depending on how my timetable shapes up.

As usual, I’m releasing these files free for personal use. You can always get the latest version by clicking here.

Update: A new version is now available. Go there.

    Great stuff, Doug. Thank you. Perhaps create a form detailing the weekly review and/or daily review. This is where many people, including myself at times, get stuck. It’d be great to have a guide-sheet to lead me through the review process.

    what’s your advice for lack of motivation?

    Mark, there are a few cheat-sheets out there. Check my interim planner instructions for a bunch of links to some. Vincent, that’s a great idea for a blog entry….
