Source: beanoriginal.net‘s very nice post on getting started with GTD
How to … The purpose of this page is to gather step by step instructions for tasks that push GTD organizing forward. The first howto is on scanning business cards with the Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500M (Windows ScanSnap Here). I will add other howtos over time as I come across other GTD tasks that have non-zero learning curves.
- Howto scan your boss’s business cards into PDFs in 40 minutes or less. This howto is useful for people who know that their ScanSnap can scan business cards, but who don’t have the time to iterate through all the settings experiments to make bcard scanning actually work. There are two tricks: first, turn off blank page suppression, second, set the option for two pages into one document. More details if you click the link above.
- How to scan your boss’s business cards into Evernote in less than 40 minutes. This is a step by step web page, with a link to a YouTube video demonstrating how to quickly scan 642 business cards into PDF files.
- Why and how to install Evernote’s web clipper. A vignette length how to which explains (some) GTD benefits of Evernote, and how to install the Evernote Web Clipper into Google Chrome so that you can capture and re-find web pages in your reference files.
- How to drag and drop files into Evernote. Very short howto page to get you over the drag and drop speed bump in Evernote.
