I’ve been using a TODO list for years in paper, inspired by the book “The Personal Software Process”, by Watts S. Humprey. But I read the article The Power of the TODO List, by James Hood and I decided to implement it in that way.

Basically, there are a file per day to write down 3 parts:

  • In progress: This is the most important part: things to be accomplished today.
  • Accomplished: things that were finished today.
  • Backlog: Things to be accomplished in the future.

Why to use GTD?

Because it is very simple and easy to use. Just install it with pip install gtd and edit the current day with python -m gtd. That’s it.

The format is quite simple. Just the headers “In progress”, “Accomplished” and “Backlog” for these tasks, and each task must start with a hyphen and space(‘- ‘).

Each day, it will copy the previous file, and:

  • it will remove the ‘Accomplished’ section.
  • it will move to the ‘In progress’ section the tasks from the ‘Backlog’ section that with a due date previous to current date.

The ‘Backlog’ section can have a due date, if they starts with [YYYY-MM-DD].


In progress:
- do cool things
- do useful things

- do minor stuff

- [2049-02-31] Take on the world


GTD is fully usable. In the near future it should be able to generate statistics and reports with the activity.
