David Allen helps parents get things done

Amazon: Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free ProductivityMany productivity books focus on getting things done at work, or in an office context. Few approach life as an "integrated package," with work, family, community, and personal concerns all thrown into the mix.

Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity (David Allen) outlines a strategy for organizing everything. No expensive custom calenders, no goofy personal mission statements, no rah-rah lingo. Just an efficient, highly logical system for corralling all the stuff that comes into your life, and a straightforward strategy for getting it done.

    I am just getting started with GTD. The basic concepts will apply to a wide range of users, but the examples are often skewed to a traditional office, generally at the executive/management level. I hope to explore specific methods of applying GTD to home and parenting. Thanks for pointing this out.
