Over the last few days I have been consolidating my GTD system,
fine tuning my files and understanding some of the subtleties
of the various org-mode features.

My tutorial is titled "How I use Emacs and Org-mode to implement GTD"

http://members.optusnet.com.au/~charles57/GTD/gtd_workflow.html

I demonstrate my use of Effort tags, column view, fast selection of
TODO states, refiling and customising refile targets.

I hope you find the tutorial useful, and please let me know any
errors, corrections or suggestions for additional content.

Thanks,
Charles Cave

Hi Charles, 

Nice tutorial! I just put a link up on the Worg time management page. 

http://orgmode.org/worg/org-gtd-etc.php

My only suggestion would be to set the subtree categories with
properties. E.g.,

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
** Calendar
   :PROPERTIES:
   :CATEGORY: Calendar
   :END:
*** Public Holidays 2009
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

According the org-mode manual, the use of multiple #+CATEGORY lines in
the same file still works, but has been deprecated.

http://orgmode.org/manual/Categories.html#Categories

Best,
Matt

Hello Charles,

Thank's for the tutorial. I had not tried remember with Org-Mode until
I read it!

I have one question - I see from the templates that you are inserting
text into the template. Is there anything special in these text files
or is it just some standard text?

Regards,


Chris.
