Question

Do you still use the Getting Things Done method to manage your tasks?

The New Yorker recently ran an article about the rise and fall of GTD, something I've felt myself as I've switched from OmniFocus and strict GTD to more ad-hoc to-do lists on paper and in Things, and Kanban boards for managing team workflows.

Do you still find Getting Things Done works for you?

I also don't follow any strict regime. I set up my daily todos in Roam, but don't mind if non-critical tasks aren't done the same day. I'll simply move them over to the next day.

Interesting, that's basically a simplified version of bullet journaling tasks method. I've used something like that for years in paper to-do lists, where I'll list tasks and check them off, then pull uncompleted tasks forward to the next day's list along with whatever that day needs done too. There's also this older web app, Do it tomorrow, with the same idea in a skeuomorphic interface, and the classic TeuxDeux that extends the idea into a whole calendar of tasks.

Yeah, I have never been able to use todo-apps efficiently, I always seem to revert back to use whatever note-taking app I'm using to handle todos as well. I think I have more or less met my threshold of the number of apps I use daily :)

Absolutely makes sense—so easy to use too many apps nowadays. How many do you think you use on a daily basis?

I tried using GTD but I never found it as efficient than simply writing new checklist with new tasks and adding yesterday's unchecked items.

Sounds like this is the most popular productivity method for lapsed GTD users!
