Done event Gold Coast

20200128
A day for individuals to come together to get their sh!t done. We provide a facilitated day in a beautiful workspace.

Imagine a day spent 100% focussed on getting your priorities done with zero distractions. With tunes scientifically designed for concentration, and a facilitator to teach you productivity techniques and to hold you accountable.

Why? We spend a lot of time being busy, but not nearly enough of that time is focussed on completing the most important activities that will have the biggest impact. We tend to focus on the most urgent tasks, but leave the most important but less urgent tasks for another day.

Done is a new event series for getting the shit done that matters most. Those important tasks that we just don’t get to. It’s a chance to remove yourself from the distractions of the office or day-to-day duties to work on a key focus. Done runs on the third Monday of every month to keep you in check towards achieving your goals.

How it works:

We provide a beautiful workspace, music for concentration, and a facilitator to hold you accountable.

Each participant brings their own “To Do” list for the day and works through them in a series of sprints. Perhaps for you it’s building a new prototype or website, starting a new marketing campaign, booking yourself in to speak at events or on podcasts, designing new sales collateral, completing a grant application, or hitting a sales target.

As well as work sprints, we will use the power of the group to have short sessions for some brainstorming and co-creation for anyone that would like some fresh perspectives, new ideas, and new connections.

  • 0815 – Arrive
  • 0830 – Welcome & training

Who should attend:

The event is targeted to anyone who want to get better traction on key activities or projects. We are charging a ticket price to attend (free for Peak Persona Members) because we want participants who are committed to taking massive action and who are at a stage with their business where they need to get sh!t done.

But for others who don’t have their own “To Do” lists you can also attend to work on other participants projects to build up your experience and practice your skills, and to connect with some serious hustlers, movers and shakers.

  • Venue setup ready for you to work
  • Facilitator to guide you through the day
  • Some stationery and whiteboards for creative design work

  • Music and sweets to keep the energy up
  • Internet and power

  • Your laptop, charger and other required devices and work materials
  • A reusable water bottle and coffee keep cup
  • Your lunch (avoid carbs)

How to prepare for the event:

  • Identify one key activity or focus area that you want to get traction on – it could be implementing a new marketing campaign, building a prototype, hitting a sales target, completing a grant application, etc.
  • Create a plan of the core actions needed so that you will use the work sprints to maximum effectiveness.
  • Get good sleep the night before. Arrive in the right mindset to GSD!
