An adaptation of the business classic Getting Things Done for teenage listeners.
The most interconnected generation in history is navigating unimaginable amounts of social pressure, both in personal and online interactions. Very little time, focus, or education is being spent teaching and coaching this generation how to navigate this unprecedented amount of "stuff" entering their lives each day. How do we help the overloaded and distracted next generation deal with increasing complexity and help them not only survive, but thrive? How do we help them experience stress-free productivity and gain momentum and confidence? How do we help them achieve autonomy, so that they can confidently take on whatever comes their way?
Getting Things Done for Teens will train the next generation to overcome these obstacles and flourish by coaching them to use the internationally renowned Getting Things Done methodology. In its two editions, David Allen's classic has been translated into dozens of languages and sold over a million copies, establishing itself as one of the most influential business books of its era, and the ultimate book on personal organization. Getting Things Done for Teens will adapt its lessons by offering a fresh take on the GTD methodology, framing life as a game to play and GTD as the game pieces and strategies to play your most effective game. It presents GTD in a highly visual way and frames the methodology as not only as a system for being productive in school, but as a set of tools for everyday life.
Getting Things Done for Teens is the how-to manual for the next generation - a strategic guidebook for creating the conditions for a fruitful and effective future.

I read the original version linked above two years ago, and it has changed my life so much.
However, it is a big book and there is a lot to digest for someone who is not used to managing their time and life in such an organised fashion.
This book is brilliant! It is written for teenagers, however, it's great for adults too, I find it so, I'd rather now re-read this one rather than the original beefier version. The explanations and diagrams in this are more engaging and much simpler & straight to the point.
This is a real gem, definitely in my TOP Three books to recommend to anyone.
The pacing and structure are great too, it's not so hard on the eyes or mind to read, it's been written really well for people who are not used to reading. Even though I read a lot, I loved reading this, I couldn't put it down, though bear in mind I've been a fan of the GTD methodology for two years now.
I really hope this get's picked up by schools and educational institutes worldwide, it really can and should revolutionise the world for the better. That sounds like a huge compliment for such a book, trust me it is very much well deserved.
Overall this is an excellent and clearly written explanation of Allen's method and the diagrams and changes in terminology have made all the difference in my understanding of the method. It less prescriptive in terms of how you might implement GTD than the original. All in all it's a fantastic, clearly written and concise version of GTD and I will be recommending it to students and everyone else with great enthusiasm.
Really helped with her exam plans.
In fact would also be good when planning for school entrance exams too (see School Entrance Tests company for more details of such planning).
I can see how easy teens can apply this and I just wish I discovered it when I was a teenager, Well i can hand this book to other young people in my circle to help get them on the right track!
The main misconception in my opinion is the assumption that teens feel constantly "overwhelmed" and/or "confused" about the quantity and variety of information they have to deal with and are therefore supposed to need a system for organizing the "information overload". That's an "adults only" problem, though. As their young brains are still in peak learning mode, they literally soak up any information they can get and follow their instincts rather than a method to classify and organize all that stuff. And they have a very different perception of "order" than adults do (which is an eternal source of discussion between parents an kids). But that's exactly what the "for teens" issue of GTD is trying to implement. To my opinion, that doesn't work.
Neverleless, the issue is not completely useless. But I am going to use it as "reference material", not as a gift for our young apprentice. Instead, I'm going to teach him the GTD principles "on the job" and by using our already implemented GTD tools.
