Join us for this month's GTD DC Meetup, where we'll be discussing how to pick the right GTD tool(s) for your GTD practice! Following the normal Meetup, we’re going to make our way to a local venue (see below) for a New Year Kickoff Gathering! Invite your friends, colleagues or significant other to join us in ringing in the new year, and new decade.

*** Please arrive between 5:45 PM and 6:00 PM to get your name badge, mix-and-mingle, and complete the Challenges Forum signup form so we can start promptly! ***

I. Introductions + Challenges Forum (~6:05 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. Topic: Picking the Right GTD Tool (~7:00 PM - 7:45 PM)

So often the topic of “What GTD tool do you use?” comes up in conversation with new and long-time GTD practitioners. But, we don’t really address how we survey and ultimately select the right GTD tool(s) for our GTD-inspired productivity systems. So, that’s what we’ll be doing at this Meetup. How do/did you pick the right GTD tool for you?

Bring paper and pen, or another writing implement, because you’ll want to do a lot of Capturing at this month’s Meetup!

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 (7:45 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.

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.


Those attending the main Meetup, we'll travel together over to The Madison Washington, DC, a Hilton Hotel (https://g.page/TheMadisonDC),[masked]th St NW, Washington, DC 20005. For those meeting us there, please give us 10-15 minutes to pack up at Cosi and make our way over to the venue!
