Getting Things Done, Ten Years In You don’t hear a lot of people talk about the Getting Things Done productivity system anymore. It’s not as colorful or Insta-friendly as the Bullet Journal, and although various apps have claimed to “work with GTD,” they’ve all fallen slightly short—because, at its core, GTD is analog.It’s a system that works less well if you let Gmail automatically sort your email into categories, or if you let an app scan your docs to pull out to-dos or calendar items, since the whole point of GTD is that you are actively tracking and collecting every task, responsibility, or concern (aka “Open Loop”) that comes your way.
