Ikigai + Eudaimonia + Pursuit of GTD | Getting Things Done DC Meetup
Join us this month's Getting Things Done DC Productivity Group Meetup event! We'll be discussing the Japanese art of eudaimonia (i.e., attaining human happiness, flourishing and prosperity), Ikigai, as well as kintsugi (the Japanese art of rejoining cracked pottery), and how it relates to Getting Things Done. 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: Ikigai/Kintsugi + Eudaimonia + Pursuit of GTD (7:20 PM - 7:40PM) We'll be discussing the Japanese art of eudaimonia (i.e., attaining human happiness, flourishing and prosperity), Ikigai, as well as kintsugi (the Japanese art of rejoining cracked pottery), and how it relates to Getting Things Done. Some recommended reading to pique your interest before the Meetup: Ikigai - https://medium.com/thrive-global/ikigai-the-japanese-secret-to-a-long-and-happy-life-might-just-help-you-live-a-more-fulfilling-9871d01992b7 and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ikigai Kintsugi - https://www.lifegate.com/people/lifestyle/kintsugi III. GTD Resource Sharing (7:40 PM) -- CATEGORY: Summer Reading Suggestions! 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. Announcements / Closing Remarks (7:50 PM) Upcoming meetups, events, and programs announcements.
