I've had a number of readers asking for more information on the "Getting Things Done" work/life management approach. http://franklio.weebly.com/1/post/2012/01/stop-being-pavlovs-dog-getting-things-done-gtd.html
A number of Linkedin readers read about my use of Excel file templates used for GTD and asked me for a copy. I've converted to an GTD Outlook setup but you can download the Excel template file here. Start with the first tab named "Stuff" and work your way to the next tabs sequentially by transferring items from the "Stuff" tab. I print all the tabbed worksheets weekly, kept them in a small binder, continuing to add to the "Stuff" sheet whenever needed.
Modify it to your liking...that's one of the beauties of GTD.

A reader, Maximilianah Zales, send me a very nice email and kind enough to share her great modification to the GTD (Getting Things Done) Excel Template. You can download it here.
“ I plan on using your spreadsheet to get started, and just wanted to share with you that I added a tab to include the list of "triggers" from pages 116-120 of the 2015 edition of the book.
It will be helpful to have it on the spreadsheet (instead of the book) to be able to go through it to mentally gather things to move over to the "stuff" tab by using the filters and copy and pasting.
I thought you might want to update and share on your page.”
A "trigger list" helps jog the memory of GTD enthusiasts while doing their weekly review.
Thank you, Maximilianah!

Wow, another reader, Macy Blanchard (Shout-out to Louisiana State University), was kind enough to share her great modification to the GTD (Getting Things Done) Excel Template.
Very impressive! I really like the updated headers and additional features such as "level of ease" and hash tags.
You can download it here.
Thank you, Macy!
