在众多「时间管理」工具（或方法）中最有名的就是 David Allen 发明的 GTD 工作法。为了阐释这种工作法，David Allen 最初整整写了一本书（后来又出过几本，但核心理念没有太大的变化）。在我看来如果没有认真完整的读完这本书的话，很难说已经掌握了这种工作法。我们能在坊间看到很多人在买了像 Omnifocus 这种工具之后觉得完全用不起来，究其原因，很多都是因为完全不知道 GTD 是什么，或者觉得它只是一个待办事项列表。
英文原文参考的是《Animal Farm: A Fairy Story (Penguin Modern Classics)》，第一章第二段原文如下：
As soon as the light in the bedroom went out there was a stirring and a fluttering all through the farm building. Word had gone round during the day that old Major, the prize Middle White boar, had had a strange dream on the previous night and wished to communicate it to the other animals. It had been agreed that they should all meet in the big barn as soon as Mr Jones was safely out of the way. Old Major (so he was always called, though the name under which he had been exhibited was Willingdon Beauty) was so highly regarded on the farm that everyone was quite ready to lose an hour’s sleep in order to hear what he had to say.
