*** Please log in between 10-15 minutes early to get your audio/video working, mix-and-mingle, and complete the Challenges Forum signup form so we can start promptly! ***
0. Joining the Virtual Meeting Room & Mix-and-Mingle (5:45 PM - 6:00 PM)
Please note that you will join this Meetup via Zoom.us, a free, Web-based meeting and phone conferencing software. You need to have a microphone and speakers working on your computer or laptop to connect by computer/laptop/mobile device with high-speed Internet access. For the best experience, instead of speakers, we suggest using headphones (the kind you plug into the 35mm audio jack in your computer or laptop) if you have a pair.
You can join the Zoom meeting by PC, Mac, Linux, iOS or Android.
If it asks for a Passcode:[masked]
There is a backup phone option for audio, if you cannot connect by audio through your computer or laptop over your Internet connection.
To join the Zoom Meeting, visit the link in this event and type your name when it asks. If you cannot join by computer audio, there is an option when you launch the meeting to dial-in by phone.
I suggest you visit https://zoom.us/download#client_4meeting to download the "Zoom Client for Meetings" on your PC, Mac or Linux computer/laptop, or https://zoom.us/download#mobile_app for the iOS and Android OS device mobile app links, prior to the meeting. If you would like to familiarize yourself with Zoom or need further help joining the meeting, please visit https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201362193-Joining-a-Meeting.)
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. Taking Productive Macro- and Micro-Breaks
It turns out that working endlessly doesn’t actually make you more productive. It’s the strategic cycle of work and rest that produces more. Yet, many of us struggle to take productive breaks.
I classify my breaks into macro-breaks (a part of a day) and micro-breaks (usually a few minutes, but could be up to an hour) to rest and transition to other projects and next-actions.
How do you take productive breaks throughout your workdays? Join us for this upcoming GTD virtual Meetup and tell us what you do to recharge between work!
Please feel free to bring your copy of Getting Things Done by David Allen for reference, your questions, thoughts and experience!
III. GTD Resource Sharing (7:30 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.
IV. Announcements / Closing Remarks (7:45 PM)
