comment Is there evidence that GTD increases productivity?
Thanks for the thorough response. I think the studies you mention in your last section are exactly what my question is looking for. If you could add a few references I think can accept the answer.

comment Is there evidence that GTD increases productivity?
This is a good answer, but given the difficulty of proving the absence of something, I will leave the question open for a while in case someone does know of a reference. The argument that "if there was a study, Allen would have cited it" is pretty strong, but given that GTD was invented by Allen, have there been any revised editions of the book since the first that you'd expect to follow up on research results? Also, re "stress-free" - I specifically excluded personal feelings from my question.

@StephanKolassa Don't various management departments have extensive productivity measuring systems? I recall Google at some point had a whole program to promote people based on productivity.

@AlexLeonov It seemed that my questions was a duplicate of that, but in Claessens et al., I can find no mention of "gtd", "getting things done" or "allen".

comment How would you describe reading a book in a GTD system?
I think it is important to distinguish between reading for pleasure, and reading pragmatically. Are you just reading Pride and Prejudice to enrich your life with literature? Or are you reading An Introduction to Fluid Dynamics because you want to figure out how to model airflow over small scale model airplanes?

comment How does The Secret Weapon work, exactly?
I am, in fact, reading the book for unrelated reasons. But is TSW supposed to be independent of the book, or is the book still a prerequisite?

It's not obvious to me how you would set up your smartphone to do this.

comment How to beat the “Too Long Didn't Read” syndrome?
I can already read a 300-page book in 6-8 hours by just... You know, reading it.
