Getting Things Done For Students: An Introduction a prezi by John M. Jackson Being a college students requires juggling many tasks... assignments group meetings sporting events laundry... How can I keep track of everything I need to do? What is GTD? GTD was developed by David Allen (this guy) GTD is a task management system How is GTD different from other organizational strategies? GTD focuses on task management, not time management Can I do the task right now? Do I have the tools I need? GTD has two basic principles: 1. Organize to-dos according to context 2. Make sure everything goes into an inbox What is What is Context is everything needed to complete a task:

Do what you can when you can and don't worry about the rest until time is right and you're in the right context. THE END. Remember, it's all about
