Join us for this month's Getting Things Done DC Productivity Group Meetup event, as we discuss a new personal productivity framework developed by the AsianEfficiency.com team called the TEA Framework! We'll talk about what it is and how it works with Getting Things Done (GTD). Please arrive at 6:00PM to get your name badge, mix-and-mingle and complete the Challenges Forum signup form so we can start promptly! I. Introductions + Overview (6:15 PM) A. Introductions - Each member will introduce yourself briefly, tell us what you do professionally (or otherwise), your GTD experience, and a recent success with your productivity implementation and/or life. B. Challenges Forum - We'll give a few minutes to have the group help each member with solutions to challenges we may be facing currently with life or work circumstances with our productivity system. These are specific productivity challenges and only one challenge per member for time's sake. II. Discussion Topic: Asian Efficiency - TEA Time Energy Attention Framework (7:20 PM - 7:40PM) The guys over at Asian Efficiency have recently released a blog post and a series of podcast episodes about a new personal productivity framework they call the TEA Framework, which stands for Time, Energy, and Attention. If you'd like to diver into this material before the discussion, check out: - http://www.asianefficiency.com/productivity/tea-framework/ - http://www.asianefficiency.com/podcast/218-tea-framework/ We will be discussing the pro's and con's of the framework, how you would go about implementing this framework, and whether it works with Getting Things Done (GTD). Please feel free to bring your copy of Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity (https://amzn.to/2FllWn1) for reference, your questions and thoughts! III. GTD Resource Sharing (7:40 PM) This is where everyone can offer a book title, recent blog or magazine article, tip/trick/hack, tool, service or item that has helped them in their life either with GTD or otherwise. The above category is a recommended focus for sharing, but you may share any productivity resource that has helped you on your GTD journey.(We compile resources discussed and post them to our Resources Page in the GTDDC Google Group. Join us there (http://groups.google.com/group/getting-things-done-dc/)!) I encourage everyone to bring some kind of GTD or productivity resource they know about or use to offer to the group! You might think something is simple, plain, obvious or known already, but you would be surprised that sharing this knowledge is always helpful to new and veteran GTDers! IV.

Check out this episode of ProductivityCast, Episode 045, "Weekly Review: Getting Things Done (GTD)," via https://productivitycast.net/045 or your favorite podcast app! Also, join us for our next Weekly Review Accountability Party #7! Do you need a bit more accountability to get your Weekly Review done? You're not alone. One of the most-cited challenges with implementing Getting Things Done is showing up and doing the Weekly Review. In light of this, we have a new group accountability program here for us called the Weekly Review Accountability Party (WRAP was a better acronym than using Group...and making it WRAG!). The Weekly Review Accountability Party (WRAP) is a weekly accountability working group that meets to do your Weekly Review (WR). (We may be hosting an additional WRAP at another time of the week for those who cannot do the 10:30 AM EST Fridays.) Rules: 1) Show up at the time of the Weekly Review Accountability Party (WRAP). We use Zoom, a video meeting application, to host this WRAP; you need to use the link provided below to join our digital community and you will see a "Zoom Event" link there, then 15 minutes before WRAP click on that "Zoom Event" link to download and install Zoom to connect with the group...it's free for you to do so. 2) Once you join the WRAP, start your video, and stay on video for accountability. Say hello to the group, mix and mingle before we all get started. I suggest, if you haven't done so before, complete the GTD-Q to know where you are at: https://gettingthingsdone.com/gtd-q/. (Ray does this before every Weekly Review to help him track how well his system is keeping him in the C&C quadrant. But, you may not wish to do this weekly; that's OK.) Ray will walk everyone through a quick introduction of the Weekly Review, we'll introduce ourselves briefly, and then everyone's microphones will be muted to get started with our respective Weekly Reviews. 3) Start your Weekly Review. Feel free to stayed muted for your audio as not to distract others, but stay on video for accountability. We allot two hours for the event, but some will do their Weekly Review in more time, some in less time. If we get to two hours and you're still working on your Weekly Review, that's fine. The host will end the Zoom, but you should keep going to complete yours! ***IMPORTANT*** To RSVP for the event, please join the new Personal Productivity Club community (http://bit.ly/gtddc-community) and once you have you'll see the WRAP event to RSVP. You need to use the link provided to access the Zoom meeting information/link. If you have any questions/concerns, message Ray here on Meetup, or email him via [masked]. So, let's WRAP up the week strong, with a good Weekly Review!
