This video walkthrough is by Mohammed Ali Vakil, Co-Founder of Calm Achiever, the official GTD franchise and Holocracy Licensee in India.

Mohammed is a certified GTD Master Trainer who has taught thousands of people and organizations how to implement productivity methods and new ways of thinking about their work and lives.

In this video, he walks through how he has adapted the PARA organizational system to support his goals and values, including:

  • How to integrate BASB with classic GTD terminology and concepts
  • How to integrate a “someday/maybe” notebook into PARA
  • How a trained productivity trainer has adapted PARA to fit how his mind works
  • How he turned the “Resources” stack into a taxonomy of tags (by Project, Topic, Entity, and Doc Type)  for more flexible categorization
