How to Use GQueues to Maximize Productivity with Getting Things Done® (GTD)

The productivity system Getting Things Done (GTD) by David Allen outlines a simple, powerful way to organize your life and accomplish your goals.

GTD is a five-stage process that helps you effectively take action on everything you need to do, with the least amount of stress possible. A central concept in GTD is creating a trusted system that stores, organizes and tracks all of your tasks, so you can feel confident nothing will slip through the cracks.

In this video, you’ll learn how to use GQueues to help maximize your productivity and accomplish your goals along with Getting Things Done.

Watch the video below to get started!


  1. Thanks so much for producing this video.
    It really helps show the potential of GQueues for managing through GTD.
    As a little bonus, could you post the parameters for the Smart Queues shown in the video please?

    Thanks again.

  2. Sure thing, Martin. Here are the settings for the Today's Agenda Smart Queue (https://goo.gl/yAeLpQ) and Next Actions Smart Queue (https://goo.gl/0rTUrY) from the video.

    1. Cameron,
      Thanks, that is very helpful.

      Best regards - Martin.

  3. I try to use GTD for everything, so thanks for providing a reference on how to use GQueues for GTD. It would be helpful though if you could provide some screen shots or straight-up text examples of the Categories and Queues you've created so I don't have to play-pause-play the video while I setup my GQueues. Thanks,
