Good Morning All - Morning Comments

I hope to have part VI of my "Getting Organized" series posted later today.

I received an email from iShares today. The 12 iShares that they are splitting will start trading at their split prices today. They also sent me a link to a helpful FAQ page that you may want to check out.

For those of you with kids, you may want to check out AllowanceMagic. David has put together a booklet about allowances that is written on their level. You can order it at his website for $8.95. It's a neat little book and may be helpful in teaching your kids financial responsibility.

There's a pretty cool blog I found a couple of weeks ago called TheSuccessRulebook. He has some excellent posts on getting things done and success in general.

Finally, I got my signed copy of David Allen's Getting Things Done (GTD) yesterday. I read about this book through 43Folders and To-Done!, two blogs I wrote about in this post. 43Folders has a really nice tutorial of GTD that you can read here. One thing I thought was kind of funny in the book is that he knocks Stephen Covey's methods without actually saying Covey's name. I kind of thought that GTD would be an addition to Covey's methods, not competition. Anyway, you'll have to see for yourself. I hope to post updates as I work my way through the book.
