DC GTD Meetup Agenda


I. Introductions + Overview (7:30 PM)

Each member will introduce himself/herself, tell us what you do professionally, your history with GTD, and a recent success/challenge with your GTD implementation. We'll give a few minutes to discuss solutions to the challenges we all share.

II. Book Discussion: Willpower: Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength by Roy F. Baumeister and John Tierney

(8:00 PM - 8:50PM)


Pioneering research psychologist Roy F. Baumeister collaborates withNew York Times science writer John Tierney to revolutionize our understanding of the most coveted human virtue: self-control. Drawing on cutting-edge research and the wisdom of real-life experts,Willpower shares lessons on how to focus our strength, resist temptation, and redirect our lives. It shows readers how to be realistic when setting goals, monitor their progress, and how to keep faith when they falter. By blending practical wisdom with the best of recent research science, Willpower makes it clear that whatever we seek—from happiness to good health to financial security—we won’t reach our goals without first learning to harness self-control.

If you haven't read it, never fear, here's a book summary so you can be join the conversation without missing a beat:
