6 Reasons Why Moms Need GTD

6 Reasons Why Moms Need GTD

1. You misplaced your keys amongst the clutter on your desk for the 15th time today.

2. You have always wanted to learn another language or how to finally find time to do the New York Times Sunday Crossword Puzzle.

3. You forget to buy milk yet again on your last trip to the grocery store.

4. You want to spend more quality time with your family and actually have a date with your husband before you have grandchildren.

5. You forgot to charge the camera for the Awards Day at School. This will lie heavily on your conscience for years.

6. You want to get healthier and loose that 5 year old post baby fat but cannot seem to find the time.

If ever there was a time in my life that I need to revamp my GTD system this is it. Work is crazy, little guy has so much to do in the next few months and I want to find time to get healthier.

Wait, if she is already using GTD why is she revamping her system?

Because, just like any mom out there I am constantly trying to make my home look nicer, my kids smarter, and trying to bust through the boring every day tasks by shaking things up a bit. Life should  be a fun, joyous adventure even if it is just doing the same old routine again and again.

So for the next few weeks I am going to share my journey utilizing David Allen’s most rocking book Getting Things Done The Art of Stress Free Productivity.

    You had me at “stress free” :).
    I will check this book out, that’s for sure. I am a working single mom, and I do feel the effects of stress creeping up on me.

    …and some dads too. I do a lot of the meal planning, shopping, bill paying etc and being organised is a must!

    I *love* GTD, and find it very useful – even if I do ‘fall off the wagon’ fairly frequently :)

    Looking forward to reading your posts.

      It seems like implementing GTD is a project in itself. What better way to form a habit then to take it from a project with action lists to TO DO list reference file just like any other every day or weekly task.
