What we're about

Public Group

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!
