First thing in the morning

My boys have started a new routine...we usually arrive at school about 20-30 minutes before the bell. Therefore, they are in my classroom with me.

Yesterday they figured something out. They could use that time to do their reading homework, freeing up time later.

It is a total win-win. It is so quiet and peaceful in my room right now...I am actually getting things done!

Maybe instead of the TV in the morning, they could start out with a book - like we adults with the morning paper and our coffee (even though sometimes it is electronic versions of the paper).

The tone for the day is so different - they are ready mentally - it's set them up for success.

  1. For implementing GTD you can use this web-based application:

    You can use it to manage your goals, projects and tasks, set next actions and contexts, use checklists, schedules and a calendar.
    Comes with a mobile version too, and with an Android app.
