If you are a parent, teacher, or child care provider, you’ve probably wondered how you can inspire kids and teens to use the GTD methods. Maybe you have helped a kid work on a project the night before it’s due, and recognized that the Natural Planning Model would have made the whole thing easier. Or you’ve listened to a teen who’s trying to balance classwork with extracurricular activities, and known that the Horizons of Focus would clarify the situation.
How do you go about communicating the benefits of GTD to kids and teens? Here are some resources for you.
David Allen did a free podcast entitled Describing GTD to Teens that’s a great starting point.
You can also use your free trial membership in GTD Connect to view these additional webinars and listen to podcasts.
David Allen Company CEO Mike Williams and Senior Coach Meg Edwards have just started a new podcast series on GTD Connect called “GTD for Caring Adults and Young People,” that focuses on taking that GTD journey with kids. The first episode talks about family projects. More to come!
In the Sharing GTD with Kids and Teens webinar, Mike and Meg discuss fun, creative, and practical ways to share the GTD best practices with your kids and teens.
In this audio clip, Meg talks about her experience of sharing about GTD with her daughter, and ways to make GTD fun for kids. In addition, Meg talks about creative ways to plan for anything—and specifically for summer camp—in Planning Projects with Kids.
