[Oz-teachers] How to say no to things you do want to do

Similarly, as mentioned in the article, I am a big fan of the GTD (get
things done) approach. The book was packed with simple, common-sense ideas
and a planning revelation for even an old educator like me. Now I work
without even a to-do-list, using the GTD system at school and home. The
approach is much better than living between random piles of papers,
projects and tasks that once covered my desk and in-tray or
a Herculean effort and lots of shuffling into the wee hours.

Would like to see how it could be adapted for my students.

Regards Roland
