Our best-practices guide for implementing GTD® with Todoist®. 39 pages.

The instructions in this Guide are currently designed for the paid versions of Todoist—not the free version—because the latest free version is limited to only 5 projects/lists. We are working on an update to the Guide so that it will also work for free users. We expect to release that updated Guide in the fall of 2021.

Please choose from:
- Letter size PDF download, 8½" x 11", commonly used in North America.
- A4 size PDF download, 210 mm x 297 mm, commonly used outside of North America.

This Guide will show you how to:
- Understand the fundamental GTD best practices
- Optimally configure Todoist in the way we have found works best for GTD
- Integrate your actionable email
- Create project and next actions lists in Todoist
- Create useful reference lists
- Use Labels and Filters effectively
... and more!
