• GTD and the Rise of Digital Technology: Is Paper and Pen Still Possible?

    Join us for GTD Café on September 8, 2020 (our fifth virtual meetup)! Let's come together to discuss whether paper and pen is still possible and practical in your GTD practice! *** 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.

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

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. * * * Please complete the Challenges Forum form here: https://forms.gle/dpra7TJX8jSVGTpD9 * * * II. Discussion: Is GTD Still Possible and Practical Using Paper and Pen? (~7:00 PM - 7:30 PM) For September's GTD Café Virtual Meetup, we’re discussing paper and pen productivity! David Allen argues in his opening to Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity (2015) that the GTD methodology is a new practice for a new reality--one where the speed of information and change, along with the lack of clear boundaries in our work and life roles, are coming at us with increasing pressure. So, does paper and pen still work? Where does it? Where doesn’t it? Let's come together to discuss whether paper and pen is still possible and practical in your GTD practice! 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. 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! IV.

Discussion: Tiny Habits, Mini Habits, Elastic Habits, Habit Stacking, Atomic Habits and More! (~7:00 PM - 7:30 PM) For August’s GTD Café Virtual Meetup, we’re discussing habits! From Tiny Habits by BJ Fogg, PhD, Mini Habits by Stephen Guise, Habit Stacking by SJ Scott, Atomic Habits by James Clear, Habits by William James, MD...the lists and more lists go on and on. Hailed as the panacea to all your personal productivity woes, habits that we frequently seek to establish or change tend to be the ones that are most difficult. Why is this the case? How can we use GTD to build habits better? Are habits really worth working on? Come join the conversation and we’ll all learn something together about making and breaking habits. III.

Discussion: GTD|REFRESH: Capturing / Collecting (~7:20 - 7:45 PM) As part of our regular discussion series on core Getting Things Done (GTD) principles, GTD|REFRESH, we will be discussing the first step in the GTD Workflow diagram/map, capturing (or, collecting). Capturing is a skill that you must learn, then a habit you need to develop, in order to get into that first stage of stress-free productivity promised by Getting Things Done (http://x.co/getgtd). We will cover the following concepts in the discussion: • defining and honing your capturing in different work and personal environments; • collection buckets and capturing tools; and, • the concept of "ubiquitous capture" for getting to Getting Things Done. As well, many GTDers struggle with Getting Things Done (http://amzn.to/2gYcerF)'s concept of "Inbox Zero," getting your inputs in your in-basket and inboxes to zero every 24 to 48 hours, as David Allen posits in the book. And, aside from my own perspectives on prioritizing which of these "in" containers gets clarified/processed first, or at all, we all need to capture inputs and manage them well for our systems to run smoothly. In this month's Meetup, we're going to discuss ideal practices for capturing and managing inputs in your GTD-influenced productivity systems. Please feel free to bring your copy of Getting Things Done (http://x.co/getgtd) for reference, your questions and recommendations as well! Your conversation contributions are what make the discussions awesome! III. GTD Resource Sharing (7:45 PM) This is where everyone can offer a book title, recent blog or magazine article, tip/trick/hack, tool, smartphone app, service or item that has helped them in their life productively either with GTD or otherwise. You may share any productivity resource that has helped you on your GTD journey. I encourage everyone to bring some kind of GTD or personal productivity resource they know about or use to offer to the group! IV. Announcements / Closing Remarks (7:50 PM) Upcoming Meetup events, and additional programs, announcements will be given. >>> Personal Productivity Club | GTD PGH <<< We have a digital community where we can discuss topics from our Meetup, and ask questions of our fellow GTDers. You can access it on the Web, as well as via Android and iOS apps, and we’re very excited to have you join us there. Please visit https://bit.ly/gtdpgh-community and you will be taken to the new digital community to join. See you there!

(Ray does this before every Weekly Review to help him track how well his system is keeping him in the C&C quadrant. But, you may not wish to do this weekly; that's OK.) Ray will walk everyone through a quick introduction of the Weekly Review, we'll introduce ourselves briefly, and then everyone's microphones will be muted to get started with our respective Weekly Reviews. 3) Start your Weekly Review. Feel free to stayed muted for your audio as not to distract others, but stay on video for accountability. 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! ***IMPORTANT*** To RSVP for the event, please join the new Personal Productivity Club community (http://bit.ly/gtdpgh-community) and once you have you'll see the WRAP event to RSVP. You need to use the link provided to access the Zoom meeting information/link. If you have any questions/concerns, message Ray here on Meetup, or email him via [masked]. So, let's WRAP up the week strong, with a good Weekly Review!
