There’s more to moving work forward than simply checking tasks off a to-do list, as the Evernote Experts can attest. As you’ll see below, they’ve unlocked the secret to actually Getting Things Done® with Evernote.
Created by David Allen, Getting Things Done—or GTD—is founded on the principle of recording all your to-dos and projects, and then breaking them into actionable steps within defined time limits. It’s based on five fundamentals:
- Capture—Write, record, or gather anything and everything that has your attention into a collection tool, such as Evernote.
- Clarify—Is it actionable? If so, determine the steps required to tackle the tasks.
- Organize—Organize them by priority or category in your productivity system.
- Reflect—Review your content regularly to regain focus.
- Engage—Make decisions with clarity.

As a writer and developer, Expert Tony Ballantyne has perfected his productivity methods in order to keep his projects on track. GTD fits into Tony’s process of using Emacs—a text editing tool that helps you type as fast as you think—to help capture his thoughts, building a workflow from his head to his keyboard. Tony believes if your tasks are all recorded, they won’t be forgotten. Getting into this habit will help remove stress from your workflow, especially if you’re using the rest of Evernote’s productivity features, too.
