I'd be interested in hearing more about how you are implementing
GTD (Getting Things Done,
as technical communicators? Have you tried it? Does it help?
Do you have other systems/techniques you use?

Years ago, I was in a general time management/office management
course, and the instructor just couldn't get her head around how
different the technical communication workflow and process was
from her previous experience, which amused me. I learned a fair
amount from the course, but there was a lot of "repurposing"
information to fit my apparently unique context. Since then,
I've been keeping up with most of the newer techniques for
keeping up with tasks and information, and wondered how everyone
else handles such things.
