What we’re about
Getting Things Done Pittsburgh (GTD PGH) 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 Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 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.
Once a quarter (and sometimes more often) we host seminars and workshops by GTD experts to teach Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced level material to members interested in growing in their GTD practice.
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?" you're a good candidate for this Meetup. If you have read David Allen's materials, or even tried to implement GTD into your life, work or personal, join us. If you are a GTD black belt ninja and would like to share your GTD skills and knowledge with others. Well, this is the Meetup for you too!
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!
If you have any questions, please message Ray Sidney-Smith, the Founder/Meetup Organizer.

- Weekly Review Accountability Party (WRAP)Needs location
Are you doing your Weekly Review this week? I hope the answer is yes!
Get ready for your Weekly Review and join us at the Weekly Review Accountability Party! We start at 10:30 AM Eastern every Friday. (Check the GTD Weekly Review Accountability Party channel in Personal Productivity Club for other WRAP events that might be happening throughout the week via https://www.personalproductivity.club/share/WqsPYo0hLap9JnHE?utm_source=manual.)
What is the Weekly Review Accountability Party?
We are GTDers looking for greater accountability to setting aside time to perform our Weekly Reviews. This is a weekly event where you can join other GTDers who are doing their Weekly Reviews.
Also, check out this episode of ProductivityCast, Episode 045, "Weekly Review: Getting Things Done (GTD)," via https://productivitycast.net/045 or your favorite podcast app!

Please note the following:
1️⃣) Any old WRAP links are now ⛔ void. The new WRAP Zoom link is only accessible from within GTD Weekly Review Accountability Party (see this 🎥 video: https://vimeo.com/689262090/007ba50043).
2️⃣) You must join Personal Productivity Club's GTD Weekly Review Accountability Party (https://www.personalproductivity.club/share/WqsPYo0hLap9JnHE?utm_source=manual) and have a Zoom.us account (so make sure to sign up for a free Zoom.us account--https://zoom.us/signup--only if you don't already have one).
3️⃣) You must be logged into that Zoom.us account when you click on that "Zoom" or "Meeting Link" link. So, before going to the GTD Weekly Review Accountability Party event page, go to https://zoom.us and log in, then click on the "Meeting Link" to join the WRAP.
Apologies for all this, but we want to make sure WRAP's are a time when you can have relaxed focus to get your Weekly Reviews done. Please message the Organizer if you have any questions.
- Show up at the time of the Weekly Review Accountability Party (WRAP). We use Zoom, a video meeting software, to host this WRAP; you need to use the link provided inside Personal Productivity Club (see above), then download and install Zoom to connect with the group...it's free for you to do so.
- Start your video, say hello to the group, mix and mingle before we all get started.
I suggest, if you haven't done so before, complete the GTD-Q to know where you are at: https://gettingthingsdone.com/gtd-q/. (I do this before every Weekly Review to help me track how well my system is keeping me in the C&C quadrant. You may not wish to do this weekly; that's OK.)
I will walk any newbies through a quick introduction of the Weekly Review if needed (please message me to let me know if this is your first time), we'll introduce ourselves briefly, and then I'll mute everyone's microphones.
Start your Weekly Review. Stay on video for accountability, as you are able.
We allot two hours for the event, but some will do their Weekly Review in more time, some in less time. If we get to two hours and you're still working on your Weekly Review, that's fine. The host will end the Zoom, but you should keep going to complete yours, or find a time later in the the day or over the weekend to finish!
Introductions (while the numbers are reasonable)
- Where are you connecting from (city/state)
- Recent Success
Set the stage
Set yourself up for a quality Weekly Review: Music, beverage, snack, and all tools and resources needed for the review. Consistency is key here, too.
Optional: Do a quick mind sweep to capture any loose thoughts you need to come back to after your review, or into your inbox for this review
Weekly Review Checklist
Check-ins (Every 40 minutes - Clear. Current. Creative.)
Continue your Weekly Review if you're still working on it even when we disconnect from Zoom!
That's a WRAP!
