What we're about

Getting Things Done NYC (GTD NYC) Productivity Group is a community of local personal productivity enthusiasts who enjoy discussing and sharing ideas/resources centering on David Allen's work, started with his well-regarded book on personal productivity, Getting Things Done®, in and around the New York City metropolitan area. It's that simple!

We do this by...

1) discussing components of the Getting Things Done methodology at the group meetups;

2) discussing, publishing and publicizing new GTD concepts/products of David Allen & Co. (as well as others) that improve upon members' GTD implementations;

3) inviting members (those new and old to GTD) to the group to share their background with GTD, challenges they are currently facing, and information and resource collaboration; and,

4) providing an online platform to connect outside of our monthly meetups about your ideas, challenges, SUCCESSES, and more with GTD.

Who should join?

If you have ever thought, "I could be more productive." Or, "I need to stop procrastinating on major goals in my life." Or, "Where did all this clutter come from?" If you have read David Allen's materials, or even tried to implement GTD into your life, work or personal. If you are a GTD whiz and would like to share your GTD skills and knowledge with others. Well, this is the meetup for you! :-P

When do we meet?

Our meetups are posted on the meetup site as scheduled, so check the main page often to see when they're announced!

Productivity Summit 2019

Needs a location

Productivity Summit (https://productivitysummit.org) is Ray Sidney-Smith‘s brainchild, contemplated almost five years ago, when Ray thought it would be really great to bring together all the personal productivity enthusiasts he knew with all the productivity experts​ he had come to know in the industry. After many iterations and finally realizing the technology could make it happen, this virtual summit is what has come of that idea. Productivity Summit is a two-day, four-track virtual summit about personal productivity, organization, technology and business development. Unlike other virtual summits that are pre-recorded presentations released on a schedule, this is a remote conference with over 40 expert speakers presenting in real-time. It’s primarily catering to professionals and executives interested in becoming more productive, organized and technologically capable in their productive lives. The conference runs Friday and Saturday, October 4 and 5, 2019 from 9am to 5pm US Eastern (plus 5pm to 6pm US Eastern for after-conference, optional networking/social virtual events). Video replays of all the recorded sessions will be available through Sunday, October 6, 2019 at 4:59 PM US Eastern, so those unable to attend can still enjoy the summit; we have a Premium Ticket available for those who want to get lifetime access to video/audio replays. You must register here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/productivity-virtual-summit-2019-tickets-48107518884 ***What to Expect*** Productivity Summit has four tracks: 1. Productivity – how to be more productive using principles, strategies and techniques. 2. Technology – what and how to use specific technologies to get things done. 3. Organization – how to get your home or office more organized, and dealing with clutter and disorganization. 4. Business Development – for those looking to build or grow their businesses more effectively and efficiently. Productivity Summit is free to attend live, and it’s all accessible through your Web browser. We have a panel discussion moderated by Ray Sidney-Smith, entitled, “The Future of Productivity Technology,” with productivity technology experts from leading companies in the industry on Friday, October 4, 2019. Our technology panelists include Ted Roden (Fancy Hands), Troy Christmas (TaskClone), Michael Sliwinski (Nozbe), Christina Willner (Amazing Marvin), and Andrew Malcolm (Evernote). Then, on Saturday, October 5, 2019, Demir Bentley, of Lifehack Bootcamp and Lifehack Tribe, will be keynoting the Summit with his presentation, “The Biggest Cover Up In Productivity History.” We have much more planned, so check out the website to see all the engagement opportunities at Productivity Summit (https://productivitysummit.org). ***Next Step*** RSVP for Productivity Summit: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/productivity-virtual-summit-2019-tickets-48107518884 ! Then, sit back and you will be receiving a few messages from Ray Sidney-Smith a week or so before the conference, walking you through how to get the most out of Productivity Summit. We really do want it to be the most productive two days of your life!

The Getting Things Done Workbook: 10 Move to Stress-Free Productivity (~8:15 - 8:45 PM) Starting your Getting Things Done (GTD) practice is tough.

Thankfully, David Allen has partnered with his long-time colleague/instructional design expert, Dr. Brandon Hall, to bring us The Getting Things Done Workbook: 10 Move to Stress-Free Productivity. For October, we are going to discuss the contrast between reading Getting Things Done and this new GTD Workbook. * * * Ray has a surprise for those in attendance who want to dive deeper into the 10 moves of the GTD Workbook! * * * If you have already purchased a copy of The GTD Workbook (https://amzn.to/2M08gy9), feel free to bring that along.
