i am working my way through "getting things done" (again) by david allen. i am very excited to start implementing it (so i'm a total newbie).

anyone interested in a support thread?

there's a lot online, but i guess the best place to start is the book. i got it first out of the library and then bought a copy cheap from amazon.

no one is interested? no zen habits or GTD junkies here?

I'm new to the GTD concept. We had a training class at work, but I couldn't make it. I do have a pdf that has a lot of info on settup up and using Outlook better. I don't have too much trouble with time management, so I haven't really bothered to start using the tips.

YES! I just read this book. I work almost full time during the school year, and have 10 different schools in which I see kids for therapy, so I constantly feel disorganized and like there are a million little balls in the air. I'm anxious to see if implementing GTD when I return to work in a few weeks will help with my stress level (that is usually very high at the beginning of the year.) It has already helped me to clarify projects that I want to get done during my summer break, and make some headway in completing these things; orgainzing photos, donating clothes, cleaning out toys, starting a garden, etc.

I re-did all my files with printed labels, moved my work office stuff home, set up a functional desk with an inbox, got a new planner for the year and have labels for Next Actions by their contexts. There are so many things about this book that I feel are going to really change how I feel about trying to juggle home and work. Now if David Allen could just come do my laundry, clean my house, and cook us dinner.....

I'd LOVE to be in contact with other mothering moms who are implementing GTD- at work or at home.

I think Organizing would be best, so that no matter why someone is implementing GTD, they will find it. We can link to it here though.
