I'd say Todoist is a solid choice. Clean, simple, and flexible.
 
My sister is entering high school and is really smart but not as organized as she could be. I'm thinking of setting her up with a GTD system. Inbox, calendar, etc. Can someone recommend a GTD program that can work with her iPhone and Mac? I use Omnifocus but am considering her getting used to a system before shelling out money for something like Omnifocus. Leaning towards Todoist, thoughts?

My latest piece at +Productivityist - hope you like it!
It's time to look at all of the things and decide what ones are truly your things. And then do your things.

One of my favourite discussions on the podcast ever....
 
On this week's podcast, @mikevardy talks with @inkandben about #productivity & creativity. https://productivityist.simplecast.fm/44
This episodes features an invigorating discussion between Mike and Ben Elijah. Ben is the author of "The Productivity Habits" and blogs over at Ink and Ben. They talk about how they look at productivity in general. But they didn't stop there. They also spent time conversing about importance, mode-based work, and even John Cleese's famous talk on creativity.

Looking for some help to spread the word on this from the Productivity Community here on G+...

Whether you're a night owl or an early bird, I'd love it if you'd go visit The Night Owl Action Plan over on Product Hunt. I know plenty of night owls who would get immense value out of this product (especially while it is priced at $10) and I want to get the word out to as many of those who need it as possible.

Here's the link to check it out...and thanks!

Pre-orders now available. Launching on 6/24 at 6 pm PDT. Only $5 until release, then the price doubles.

More details at the link...but I'm really stoked about this one! 
"The early bird gets the worm but the second mouse gets the cheese." - Jeremy PaxmanIt's been said that early risers are the most productive, but that's simply not true. Night owls can be just as productive - if not more so - but they need to have the right frameworks in place to succeed. The problem is that there are plenty of resources for morning people to reach next level productivity but very little is out there for the late night achiever t...

Writer - Talker - Productivityist
Introduction

I am a husband, father, writer, podcaster, speaker, and "productivityist".

In addition to writing for my personal weblog, Productivityist.com, I continue to contribute guest articles to several blogs on the topic of productivity, including The Huffington Post, GTD Times, and SUCCESS Magazine.

Prior to returning to full-time freelancing, I served as the Managing Editor at Lifehack, one of the top productivity blogs on the web. I've also been an editor at technology news site, The Next Web, and enjoyed a year-long stint as editor of the work-life balance blog, WorkAwesome.

I am also the author of "The Front Nine: How to Start the Year You Want Anytime You Want" from Diversion Books.

Along with my written work, I've given talks on productivity and technology, as well as several featured keynotes and workshops related to time, project and goal management. As a podcaster, I have created, produced and hosted several over the years. I currently co-host Mikes on Mics with Michael Schechter, a podcast that is part of the popular 5by5 network.

I live in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada with my amazing wife, daughter, and son.

Derek's work in local publications drew me to him, and I was exceedingly happy with the work he provided. He made me feel comfortable throughout the shoot, was open to my ideas and offered many killer ones of his own. If you're looking for a top-notch photographer, you can't go wrong with Derek Ford.
