Planning a baby shower with GTD

Date: Tuesday, September 06, 2011 by GTD Times Staff

This post on planning a baby shower is from the Art department at the David Allen Company.

Here’s a great reminder of how helpful GTD is for any project, personal or professional.

Our team at the David Allen Company is planning a baby shower for  a co-worker.  We met today to do the following:

  1. Brainstorm and mind map the project
  2. Decide on next actions
  3. Assign people to the identified next actions
  4. Decide when to loop around again for further planning

Here was our simple mind map that helped clarify the tasks:


Our 20-minute meeting allowed everyone to move forward on this fun project with their own clearly-defined tasks.

GTD can help integrate your professional and personal life. Simple, easy, and fun planning — that’s a “GTD” baby shower!
