As many of you know I am a new dad. As many of you know I am a Youth Pastor. As many of you do not know I currently am suffering the worst case of conjunctivitis (aka 'pink eye') in the history of oozing-eye, crustyness I have ever experienced. As many of you further may or may not know as a new dad, whose wife has to work at night while I stay home with the little one.

This new twist in our schedule has caused me to seekout new ways to increase my productivity and become better at managing my time better for life and ministry. In this effort to become more productive I have come across some resources I would like to share with you in hopes that some of you, if not all of you, will find some of these resources, if not all of them, more usefull to you in your own attempts to GTD.

GTD means 'get things done' so on that note I hope these help:

My Backpack or Backpackit
This is an online attempt help you get organized. Keep your to do lists, agendas, notes, ideas, and schedule online. Accessible anytime, anywhere you can access the internet.

43 Folders
A simple blog about personal productivity, life hacks, and simple ways to make your life a little better.

Church Software N-Spire
If you are in church work this software, in my humble opinion, is the easiest, most user friendly, membership database and tracking software out on the market. Some might consider it pricey for the size of your church but it is an investment well worth it. Track not just members but visitor/attender presence, small groups, single event registry, one-on-one discipleship, mentoring or counseling sessions, track payments, member assimilation, etc.
an easy way to catalog and track your personal library for MAC users. See below for PC version called lib.rario.us

D*I*Y Planner Paper, productivity & passion
A community of people who see the value of paper as a medium for planning, productivity, creative expression, and exploring ideas.

EverNote(tm) makes it easy to store, manage and access typed and handwritten notes, memos, webpage excerpts, emails, phone messages, addresses, passwords, brainstorms, sketches, protect personal information and create bookmarks to documents.

Flickr is almost certainly the best online photo management and sharing application in the world. Show off your favorite photos to the world, securely and privately show photos to your friends and family, or blog the photos you take with a cameraphone.

lib.rario.us - social media cataloging
PC useres easily, effectiently, and effectively catalog all your personal media in one easy to set up, easy to use online library. Create seperate libraries for books, music, dvds, games, and other media.

LibraryThing Catalog your books online
LibraryThing catalogs your books online, easily, quickly and for free (up to 200 books).

Daily digest and pointers on productivity, getting things done and lifehacks.

Computers make us more productive. Yeah, right. Lifehacker recommends the software downloads and web sites that actually save time. Don't live to geek; geek to live.

Less time on tasks... more time with people!
