Back to school: GTD is the solution for parents

A Community Contribution from April Perry The first day of school started out great. My three oldest children dressed in their new clothes, laced up their new shoes, ate a healthy breakfast, and then headed off to school with homemade sack lunches and brightly-colored, fully-stocked pencil cases. I felt like a wonderful mom. They returned […]

A GTDer in Belgium shares his success

A Community Contribution from Jan Cherlet Hi fellow GTD practitioners, April 9, 2009 was the morning that changed my life. For the 4th time that week, I woke up at 4 am and couldn’t close another eye because of all the things I had to do (recognise this?). But this time I got up and […]

How GTD can help with applying to college

I recently presented a seminar where a participant brought up the project of getting her daughter into college.  Since that had been a project for me as well, I wrote to her about how I applied the “Natural Planning Model” to this project. For those of you unfamiliar with the Natural Planning Model, it is […]

Taking care of family

This community contribution comes from Tara who uses GTD to care for her ill mother.  It’s a wonderful story from someone who–already naturally organized and productive–found ways to improve on her systems to provide the best care she could for her mother. Dear David, I’m probably in the camp of those who need GTD the least […]

The last […]

The Freedom to Make a Big, Fat Mess

A couple of weeks ago (during an In Conversation that will be posted later this summer on GTDConnect), David Allen asked me if I practice GTD with my kids. In response, I laughed and said, “No.” After all, my daughter is three years old and my son is just nine months. They can hardly do GTD, […]

An experiment by a 'GTD parent'

Mike Williams, speaker at the recent GTD Summit, and longtime friend of David Allen Company, sent us this story with us about his experience sharing GTD with his kids. We thought this was fitting to share on Father’s Day. I am always running experiments with my kids (queue the evil scientist laugh!).  I would love […]

GTD at Home

By Michael Sliwinski – Community Contributor “Don’t try this at home” (MTV – Music Television) As I mentioned in my last article, being at the GTD seminar and listening to David Allen inspired me to try out different approaches to GTD. I decided to actually try GTD at home. I had a pleasure of talking […]
