The Now Habit at Work - GTD DC Productivity Meetup

  • Aug 20, 2014 · 6:15 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

DC GTD Meetup Agenda

==============================================

I. Introductions + Overview (6:30 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: The Now Habit at Work by Dr. Neil Fiore (7:20 - 7:40 PM)

The follow-up to Dr. Neil Fiore's acclaimed The Now Habit: A Strategic Program for Overcoming Procrastination and Enjoying Guilt-Free PlayThe Now Habit at Work attempts to bring this kind of optimal performance program to your work life. How does it facilitate GTD and how does it differ? That's what we'll be discussing at this month's Meetup! So, join us and we'll give a summary of the book's principles (so you're welcome to read it, or not) then discuss how The Now Habit at Work can complement your GTD implementation in your productivity system!

Book Description (from Amazon.com):

Increase productivity, efficiency, and full-brain power when you apply Now Habit strategies to your business.

What if working harder, stressing more, and putting in more hours aren't the secret to success? What if truly effective managers, entrepreneurs, and businesspeople simply use more of their brain to make creative decisions, work in the zone, and live more fully in the process?

The Now Habit at Work gives you a hands-on manual enabling the resilience and focus of champions-the ability to bounce back from set-backs, to believe in yourself, and focus on solving problems rather than seeing only obstacles. This one-of-a-kind program offers:

• Tools to enable superior quality work that creates work-life balance

• Strategies to maintain focus and self-confidence

• Tips to conquer stress through effective time management and goal setting

• Daily exercises to ignite motivation in yourself and others to tackle projects with creativity and ease

Filled with practical examples that are throroughly tested and easy to implement, The Now Habit at Work will have you increasing your mindfulness while reforming old habits and reducing your stress. You'll be amazed at how soon your new habits will be inspiring and motivating those around you to new levels of productivity!

III. GTD Resource Sharing (7:40 PM) -- CATEGORY: CALENDARING & SCHEDULING

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. (We compile resources discussed and post them to our Resources Page in the GTDDC Google Group. Join us there!)

I ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO BRING SOME KIND OF GTD OR PRODUCTIVITY RESOURCE THEY KNOW ABOUT OR USE TO OFFER TO THE GROUP!

IV. Announcements / Closing Remarks (7:50 PM)

Upcoming meetups, events, and programs announcements. All announcements must be sent to the Meetup Organizer within the RSVP form to announce to the group, at his/her sole discretion. Thank you!
