I written a few times over the last couple of years about the Getting Things Done system as developed by David Allen. It’s a great system for sorting out the multitude of ‘stuff’ that comes into your life, from emails to the shopping lists. Along with the GTD system I’ve been tinkering for a while with the best software to support GTD. I’ve tried using add-ons to Outlook, like the Jello Dashboard and last year moved to Thinking Rock, an Australian software tool based around GTD. This year I’m trying GTD-Free, a free and open source piece of software that looks plain, but promising.
I’ll let you know hot it goes. Meanwhile, as schools begins to warm up and wind up I heartily recommend the GTD system for teachers.
