GTD, or Get Things Done, is a productivity method created by David Allen and rests on the idea of capturing information, clarifying the usage, organizing, and finally engaging or doing!
I personally use a small variance of the GTD I created to adapt it to my needs (as you should). But the principles are the same.
If you’re curious to learn more about the GTD method, here are the best free resources to learn:
The Get Things Done (GTD) book
The defacto book to learn about GTD is the book from the creator of the method itself: David Allen. The book goes into details about the steps and what to do/don’t on each step.
But, you promised free resources! Yes, I know.
If you don’t want to get the book, here’s a good free summary:
Introduction to GTD method by Doist
Doist, the people behind Todoist and Twist have a detailed step-by-step guide to learn GTD and I love it! I personally used it to learn about the GTD method in combination with the summary ^. (Yes, I didn’t read the book either).
Here’s the link to it again: Getting things done by Doist.
