Join us for this month's GTD VIRTUAL Meetup (in lieu of our normal date/time/location)! Let's come together to discuss the skills, strategies and tools we can all use now and in the future to be more effective and efficient working when we're not physically at work.

*** 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.

There is a backup phone option for audio, if you cannot connect by audio through your computer or laptop over your Internet connection.

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. Topic: (~7:15 PM - 8:00 PM)

In this period of uncertainty, we can all work to be safe and productive using the Getting Things Done methodology. As many of us are required or selected to work remotely (and for many of us that means working from home) through the next few weeks, let's come together to discuss the skills, strategies and tools we can all use now and in the future to be more effective and efficient working when we're not physically at work.

III. GTD Resource Sharing (8:00 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. The above category is a recommended focus for sharing, but you may share any productivity resource that has helped you on your GTD journey.

I encourage everyone to bring some kind of GTD or productivity resource they know about or use to offer to the group! You might think something is simple, plain, obvious or known already, but you would be surprised that sharing this knowledge is always helpful to new and veteran GTDers!

We compile resources discussed and post them to our to our online community group here: http://bit.ly/gtdpgh-community!
