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 (https://www.meetup.com/members/6779661/), the Founder/Meetup Organizer.

II. GTD|REFRESH: Reflecting Effectively on Different Time Horizons

Join us for GTD Café on June 14, 2022! We’ll be discussing how Reflecting effectively on different time horizons impacts your Getting Things Done practice.

In Getting Things Done, David Allen says that, “You must be assured that you’re doing what you need to be doing, and that it’s OK to be not doing what you’re doing.” And further, “Reviewing your system on a regular basis, reflecting on the contents, and keeping it current and functional are prerequisites for that kind of clarity and stability.” Do you have that kind of clarity and stability in your GTD practice? I know it’s always a challenge in our workaday worlds.

But, Reflecting seems to be a deferred priority for many because it’s not the first step in the GTD workflow process. For this GTD|REFRESH, we’ll be diving into the various reviews and Reflecting skills GTD practitioners need in order to be successful at the business of life and game of work!

So, join us, bring your copy of Getting Things Done [https://amzn.to/3c8jKNA] to reference, and we’ll discussing Reflecting effectively on different time horizons for an optimal GTD practice!

III. GTD Resource Sharing (7:30 PM)
