Getting Things Done for Teens, by David Allen


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. 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.

 

 

Getting Things Done outlines so many of the keystone habits that allow us to have calmer, more productive, more creative lives. If you learn these techniques when you’re young, they’ll pay off for decades. I can’t think of a better guide for success in life.”
—Charles Duhigg, New York Times bestselling author of The Power of Habit

“The guide every teenager needs to procrastinate less, get more done, and teach your parents a thing or two along the way.”
—Adam Grant, Wharton professor and New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take, Originals, and Option B with Sheryl Sandberg

“Read and experiment with this book; your future self will thank you.”
—Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos.com and New York Times bestselling author of Delivering Happiness
