Teaching GTD to your teenagers

I was just listening to a 6 min podcast by David Allen on how to teach teenagers GTD. Here's what to say to your teenagers.

  • Just write what you need to do down. Don't keep your commitments in your head.
  • Write down all those things you need to do to finish it.
  • Work out the very next action that needs to get done.
  • Once a week look at all the stuff you need to do and work out what you are going to do next.

We often, as a family, do a weekly review which gets our girls in the habit of this weekly ritual. Given how busy we all are it's vital to the sane working of our household.
