nmhouston @macbikegeek you’re moving? or you got rid of unneeded packing stuff? #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:07:21 +0000 2016
apinaud I don’t know if count as Productivity but yesterday my next book got First Draft Status #ProdChat Thu Apr 21 00:07:29 +0000 2016
nmhouston Q1: What comes to mind when you think about reflection? #prodchat https://t.co/oY1yu7eIeU Thu Apr 21 00:07:38 +0000 2016
macbikegeek @nmhouston @macbikegeek decluttering my office. A small portion of the cubic contents to be dealt with. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:08:09 +0000 2016
jcaridi123 I recently had a group project that took a while to start but once we did, we had a spurt of productivity until the end #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:08:21 +0000 2016
cbplan Hello hello hello… a success for the week? I think I’ve finally lost the taste for Diet Coke in favor of mineral water. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:08:50 +0000 2016
DrFrankBuck A1: “Reflection: says to me blocking the world away and focusing on something from yesterday than can impact tomorrow. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:08:50 +0000 2016
macbikegeek a1: let me reflect on that…. Two things, one the GTD sense of looking at everything and figuring it all out. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:08:59 +0000 2016
nmhouston @macbikegeek always good to declutter! #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:09:09 +0000 2016
nmhouston @jcaridi123 that sounds good! and welcome to #prodchat! Thu Apr 21 00:09:40 +0000 2016
jcaridi123 A1: The first thing that comes to mind, is pondering the things I did wrong, rather than the ones I also did right. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:09:47 +0000 2016
cbplan A1 Reflection… a vague word. But I think the value is looking back at something from a different vantage point. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:10:11 +0000 2016
dcc1393 I recently finished writing a song with my band that has had us stumped for months #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:10:13 +0000 2016
DrFrankBuck @cbplan Diet Coke? For me I could have lost the taste for it in favor of turpentine. lol #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:10:13 +0000 2016
nmhouston @cbplan welcome! that’s a great healthy switch #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:10:14 +0000 2016
apinaud @cbplan nice! Don’t pick Sprite. I made that mistake and still like it. More water than Sprite but it is harder to kick ##ProdChat Thu Apr 21 00:10:56 +0000 2016
nmhouston @dcc1393 hi Dan, welcome to #prodchat! and congrats on writing the song! Thu Apr 21 00:11:04 +0000 2016
macbikegeek A1b second is in the general sense of thinking/pondering reviewing things/life/whatever #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:11:17 +0000 2016
cbplan @DrFrankBuck One of those pious Classic Coke people I see… :-) #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:11:19 +0000 2016
nmhouston Q2: What kinds of reflection do you currently make time for? #prodchat https://t.co/vY4cV9ktYY Thu Apr 21 00:11:45 +0000 2016
apinaud A1 The first thing that come to mind is Coffee and a Blank Screen to Journal. The second thing is time to think #ProdChat Thu Apr 21 00:12:00 +0000 2016
DrFrankBuck @cbplan How did you guess. I have learned to make them rare in favor of water. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:12:00 +0000 2016
jcaridi123 @cbplan could not agree more, looking at it in retrospect you learn many more things for the future. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:12:17 +0000 2016
macbikegeek And guests are here so I’m out. happy to have @HeatherPierson visiting for the weekend while she and band play gigs in Chicagoland #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:12:19 +0000 2016
macbikegeek Goodnight all, I’ll catch you in the transcript! #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:12:40 +0000 2016
cbplan A2 I Reflect on things I’ve said in the past. That is where things have usually went awry. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:12:45 +0000 2016
dcc1393 A1: Reflection for me as a student means finding what is going to inspire me the most as I enter the real world in a couple weeks #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:12:48 +0000 2016
nmhouston @macbikegeek have fun with your houseguests! #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:13:42 +0000 2016
macbikegeek @nmhouston @macbikegeek thanks! We will! #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:14:00 +0000 2016
cbplan @macbikegeek Catch you later sir. Peace. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:14:04 +0000 2016
nmhouston Lots of great definitions of reflection coming up — looking inwards, thinking about the past, finding inspiration #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:14:41 +0000 2016
apinaud A2 I try to block at least one hour per week (ideally 3) just to think (or reflect) One of my best #productivity #tricks #ProdChat Thu Apr 21 00:14:50 +0000 2016
jcaridi123 A2: I tend to reflect when I did something of poor judgement, or did not live up to my true potential. #prodchat #realtalk Thu Apr 21 00:15:06 +0000 2016
cbplan A2 I Reflect on things I’ve said in the past. That is where things have usually went awry. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:15:31 +0000 2016
jcaridi123 RT @nmhouston: Lots of great definitions of reflection coming up — looking inwards, thinking about the past, finding inspiration #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:15:44 +0000 2016
DrFrankBuck A2: I don’t really have a certain time or certain topics I reflect on. It’s more fluid. cont… #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:15:49 +0000 2016
nmhouston A2 I write in a journal every morning, also a daily gratitude practice in the evening #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:16:12 +0000 2016
DrFrankBuck A2: …cont. Everything is on one list, so there’s only one place to look for all of my plans. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:16:23 +0000 2016
dcc1393 A2: @jcaridi123 I agree, much of my reflections recently have been on things I could have or should have done differently #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:17:05 +0000 2016
DrFrankBuck A2: I have @IFTTT send me an email every evening at asked “How did you make today count?” #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:17:59 +0000 2016
nmhouston @jcaridi123 self assessment is an important first step to growth #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:18:06 +0000 2016
DrFrankBuck A2: That email contains a link to a Google Form with a big block for me to answer that question. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:18:46 +0000 2016
cbplan A2 For me Reflection is the mental equivalent of seeing a raccoon washing his food. Can be somewhat frenetic. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:18:55 +0000 2016
nmhouston @dcc1393 @jcaridi123 how do you capture your reflection so as to learn from it, carry it forward? #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:18:58 +0000 2016
DrFrankBuck A2: the answer goes into a spreadsheet date and time stamped. Geeky, I know. But it does make me reflect on the day. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:19:17 +0000 2016
cbplan A2 At times for me I should add… #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:19:27 +0000 2016
cbplan Tweetchat seems to be lagging a bit. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:20:12 +0000 2016
nmhouston @DrFrankBuck this is a great practice — I do the same thing with @idonethis #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:20:15 +0000 2016
nmhouston Q3: How does reflection affect your productivity? #prodchat https://t.co/jPVqbusd29 Thu Apr 21 00:20:29 +0000 2016
DrFrankBuck @nmhouston I will have to take a look at @idonethis #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:20:53 +0000 2016
jcaridi123 @nmhouston Imagining how a different action or work ethic could have changed the outcome, and perhaps try those in the future #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:21:07 +0000 2016
cbplan A3 Reflection is a future investment in productivity. A chance to process your “lessons learned”. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:21:37 +0000 2016
DrFrankBuck A3: Going back to my “How did you make today count?”, knowing I will be asked at the end of the day, it helps keep me on track. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:22:29 +0000 2016
DrFrankBuck A3: Going back to my “How did you make today count?”, knowing I will be asked at the end of the day, it helps keep me on track. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:22:29 +0000 2016
nmhouston @jcaridi123 yes, I like your point about harnessing the power of imagination as part of planning, trying new things #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:22:35 +0000 2016
nmhouston RT @cbplan: A3 Reflection is a future investment in productivity. A chance to process your “lessons learned”. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:22:47 +0000 2016
jcaridi123 Q3:reflection boosts my productivity significantly. If I am not being productive and don’t reflect on why I will fall into a slump #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:22:48 +0000 2016
nmhouston A3 Any amount of time I set aside for reflection is well worth it — multiplies the value of all the other minutes of the day #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:23:53 +0000 2016

cbplan A3 There is value in giving your brain time to wander. Kind of the opposite of meditation. Coffee shop windows are good for this. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:25:37 +0000 2016
dcc1393 A3: It is essential to my productivity as a musician. I need to reflect on what I want the end result to be before I can start #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:25:38 +0000 2016
nmhouston A3 Reflection is also a chance to assess whether I’m in alignment with my core values in how I’m spending my time. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:27:05 +0000 2016

disgamechanger RT @nmhouston: A3 Reflection is also a chance to assess whether I’m in alignment with my core values in how I’m spending my time. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:29:52 +0000 2016
michelle1908 A3) Reflection helps me refocus and clarify what I should be working on and if I’m moving toward my goals #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:30:31 +0000 2016
nmhouston @IsaPinaud hi Isabel! great to see you! #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:30:40 +0000 2016
IsaPinaud I’m Isabel a 21yr old Design student obsessed with productivity (I might be a bit of a perfectionist, but don’t tell anyone :P) #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:30:49 +0000 2016
nmhouston Q4: What gets in the way of reflection? #prodchat https://t.co/XnD1ozqjeS Thu Apr 21 00:30:54 +0000 2016
IsaPinaud A1 Definitely a minimalist mindset. I love getting rid of physichal, mental and emotional clutter #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:31:16 +0000 2016
apinaud A3 Reflection is for me one of the Keys for #productivity it is what allow me to differentiate regular tasks and high impact ones #ProdChat Thu Apr 21 00:31:30 +0000 2016
nmhouston @michelle1908 hi Michelle, welcome to #prodchat! Thu Apr 21 00:31:53 +0000 2016
michelle1908 Q2) I don’t make time for reflection right now. I definitely need to. It’s always beneficial. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:31:54 +0000 2016
DrFrankBuck A4: A common enemy of “reflection” is “busy.” Often the reflection could help with some of the “busy.” #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:32:06 +0000 2016
IsaPinaud A2 I like the idea of giving yourself at least 20 min at the end of the day just to think about the day that has passed & the next #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:32:17 +0000 2016
nmhouston RT @DrFrankBuck: A4: A common enemy of “reflection” is “busy.” Often the reflection could help with some of the “busy.” #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:32:39 +0000 2016
IsaPinaud A3 If we don’t take time to stop, slow down and reflect, then we aren’t being productive, we are just engaged in busy work. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:32:51 +0000 2016
apinaud Hello @IsaPinaud #ProdChat Thu Apr 21 00:33:01 +0000 2016
nmhouston @IsaPinaud yes, it’s great to have a process for closing out one day and preparing for the next #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:33:16 +0000 2016
michelle1908 Q4) General resistance and focusing too much on doing instead of taking time to step back #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:33:20 +0000 2016
IsaPinaud A4 Life in general. We are “so busy”, that we “don’t have time” to slow down. (We do have it, we just don’t recognize it) #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:33:40 +0000 2016
cbplan A4 Anger gets in the way of reflection. One must be open to accepting what one is seeing. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:33:51 +0000 2016
IsaPinaud @DrFrankBuck Hello hello :) How are you doing? #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:34:01 +0000 2016
IsaPinaud @nmhouston Hey Natalie! Great to see you as well :) #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:34:12 +0000 2016
IsaPinaud @apinaud Hola tuto :) I haven’t seen you on here for a long time. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:34:38 +0000 2016
nmhouston A4 It’s easy to get caught up in just *doing* without enough *thinking*. That’s precisely when you need to reflect more! #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:34:55 +0000 2016
IsaPinaud @nmhouston It helps to keep sight of where you want to go and what you are doing to get there :) #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:35:04 +0000 2016

IsaPinaud @cbplan This is so true! We often let our negative feelings blind us of the things we must do. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:36:00 +0000 2016
nmhouston cbplan yes, strong emotions can get in the way or cause resistance #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:36:01 +0000 2016

nmhouston @apinaud right, why even judge it as good or bad? reflection is reflection #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:38:36 +0000 2016
nmhouston @dcc1393 this is a really good point — our productivity habits can help or hinder us from reflection #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:39:09 +0000 2016
apinaud @IsaPinaud add to your list buy bigger mirror 😜 #ProdChat Thu Apr 21 00:39:25 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith @IsaPinaud @apinaud Good evening, Siblings Pinaud! How’re you? #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:39:52 +0000 2016
apinaud Having fun at #ProdChat how are you doing? https://t.co/8xv7vOQK0s Thu Apr 21 00:40:54 +0000 2016
IsaPinaud @rsidneysmith @apinaud Doing great ray! How about you #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:41:28 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith @apinaud @IsaPinaud Great! I’m sure! @nmhouston is at the helm! #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:41:44 +0000 2016
IsaPinaud @apinaud Or I could go the minimalist route and get rid of the mirror altogether :P #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:41:45 +0000 2016
nmhouston Q5: Are there tools or tips that help you reflect? #prodchat https://t.co/wHeRiFosQp Thu Apr 21 00:41:45 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith @IsaPinaud @apinaud Hi, Isabel. I just left @gtddc and it was great. I’m exhausted. I taught a full-day podcasting workshop. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:43:05 +0000 2016
jcaridi123 A tip I heard that I don’t usually do, is to write everyday, simply reflecting at the end of the night, good or bad, always helps #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:43:34 +0000 2016
apinaud A5 that’s a difficult one. I use #DayOne for Digital Reflection and good paper and color markets for the analog version #ProdChat Thu Apr 21 00:43:53 +0000 2016
nmhouston A5 my favorite notebook and my favorite pen are my trusty reflection companions #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:43:58 +0000 2016
DrFrankBuck A5: One tool that helps (makes) me reflect is the daily “How did you make today count?” email. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:44:06 +0000 2016
cbplan A5 Any independent coffee shop with a window makes a good environment for reflection. And the caffeine will pick you up a bit too. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:44:30 +0000 2016
michelle1908 A5) Checklists and journal templates have been helpful in the past. I just need to stick with it. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:44:32 +0000 2016
nmhouston @jcaridi123 what stops you from writing every day? #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:44:46 +0000 2016
DTNEtiquette I put reflection time on my calendar – it works! #ProdChat A4 Thu Apr 21 00:44:47 +0000 2016
DrFrankBuck A5: The other is having a comprehensive task list that helps keep me focused on what I had decided I wanted to be doing. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:44:48 +0000 2016
dcc1393 A5: I need to be in a good space. Good lighting, absolutely no noise, and usually a notebook, pen, and often a guitar #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:44:58 +0000 2016
IsaPinaud @rsidneysmith That sounds exhausting, but totally worth it :) #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:45:07 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith A5: My journal. I tag my emotions and review them monthly to see patterns. #prodchat https://t.co/X7AAPvNszo Thu Apr 21 00:45:17 +0000 2016
apinaud A5b I also write 3 things I am #grateful at the beginning of the day and another 3 before I disconnect #ProdChat Thu Apr 21 00:45:29 +0000 2016
IsaPinaud A5 Sometimes I journal my thoughts, sometimes I sketch them out :) #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:45:52 +0000 2016
IsaPinaud RT @jcaridi123: A tip I heard that I don’t usually do, is to write everyday, simply reflecting at the end of the night, good or bad, always… Thu Apr 21 00:46:04 +0000 2016

jcaridi123 @nmhouston the only thing stopping me is just to sit my self down and actually do it, but I tend to only do it when I “need” to #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:46:14 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith @IsaPinaud Yes, we had a great workshop group. I hope some of my #smallbiz participants launch podcasts! #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:46:14 +0000 2016
nmhouston A5 A structured approach to daily reflection is Seligman’s Three Good Things exercise https://t.co/CtDbvApQmr #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:46:44 +0000 2016
apinaud I called my #ExtraordinaryHour but it is the same idea I think #ProdChat https://t.co/e9K5iIqvHJ Thu Apr 21 00:47:11 +0000 2016
IsaPinaud A5a I write down things I’m grateful for that day and read an affirmation before going to read…I mean….bed. :) #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:47:34 +0000 2016
IsaPinaud RT @DTNEtiquette: I put reflection time on my calendar – it works! #ProdChat A4 Thu Apr 21 00:47:40 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith @michelle1908 I normally use @Evernote (of course!). ;) But I’ve also been playing with Journey and @dayone. Or is it @dayoneapp ? #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:47:58 +0000 2016
IsaPinaud @rsidneysmith I love the tagging your emotions idea!! How many do you choose from? I’m curious now #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:48:13 +0000 2016
nmhouston A5 I already mentioned @idonethis — or a repeating reminder in your calendar app helps create reflection habit #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:48:18 +0000 2016
IsaPinaud @rsidneysmith Maybe someday I’ll have to bother you so you can spoil your podcast secrets with me! Not yet, but someday :) #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:49:18 +0000 2016
michelle1908 @rsidneysmith I have several journal entries in @evernote – I like the idea of tagging them. I’ll check out the others. Thanks! #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:49:23 +0000 2016
2TimeLabs RT @DrFrankBuck: A5: One tool that helps (makes) me reflect is the daily “How did you make today count?” email. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:49:32 +0000 2016
IsaPinaud RT @DrFrankBuck: A5: The other is having a comprehensive task list that helps keep me focused on what I had decided I wanted to be doing.… Thu Apr 21 00:49:33 +0000 2016
dcc1393 @DrFrankBuck couldn’t agree more, my worst habit is how easily I can get off task. Having a list always visible is key #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:49:34 +0000 2016
IsaPinaud @michelle1908 Sticking with it is the hardest part! Have you tried setting an alarm to reming you? #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:49:59 +0000 2016
nmhouston A5 Lots of people really like 5 Minute Journal too https://t.co/n1iwbLeyjt — who doesn’t have 5 min? #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:50:04 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith @IsaPinaud I’d be more than happy to! #podcasting #smallbiz #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:50:10 +0000 2016
nmhouston Q6: What would you like to do over the next week to help you reflect? #prodchat https://t.co/GXLBvf4LCg Thu Apr 21 00:50:57 +0000 2016
rsidneysmith @IsaPinaud I’ve chosen only 10 positive and 4 negative (apathy, anger, sad, hurt) emotions. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:51:38 +0000 2016
apinaud @michelle1908 set for the same time everyday. Begin your day 15 minutes early and do it before you begin the day #ProdChat Thu Apr 21 00:51:42 +0000 2016
IsaPinaud @nmhouston I might have to try this out! #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:52:23 +0000 2016
nmhouston A6 I’m going to work on my evening routine which tends to be a little more haphazard than my morning reflections. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:52:36 +0000 2016
DrFrankBuck A6: I will continue with what I have been doing. It’s been working for me. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:52:37 +0000 2016
dcc1393 A6: I’m going to follow some of the tips I’ve learned on here for a start! That’s all the time I have tonight, thanks for chatting #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:52:39 +0000 2016
michelle1908 @IsaPinaud No, I need to put it as a recurrring event on my calendar. I always benefit from it. I don’t know why I resist it so. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:52:42 +0000 2016
jcaridi123 A6: Considering it is about to be finals week my senior year I do not have much time for reflection, but will try and write daily #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:52:52 +0000 2016
IsaPinaud @rsidneysmith I think I’m going to try this out :) Thanks Ray! #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:52:56 +0000 2016
cbplan A6 Being an early riser in the morning is likely a good starting point to facilitate reflection. #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:53:18 +0000 2016
michelle1908 @apinaud That’s a great idea – do it before I begin my day! I’ll do that tomorrow. #ProdChat Thu Apr 21 00:53:19 +0000 2016
nmhouston @dcc1393 thanks for joining us! #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:53:24 +0000 2016
nmhouston @jcaridi123 transition periods are good times for reflection! good luck with exams #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:54:00 +0000 2016
apinaud A6 I will continue with my #ExtraordinaryHour before my day begins, it works great for me #ProdChat Thu Apr 21 00:54:05 +0000 2016
IsaPinaud A6a I might also look into the five minute journal (thanks @nmhouston ) #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:54:07 +0000 2016
DrFrankBuck @michelle1908 I love it when I hear people talk about entering recurring events and tasks. Relieves “I’ve got to remember.” #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:54:34 +0000 2016
IsaPinaud @nmhouston I should work on my morning routine which is crazy than the evening one! #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:54:51 +0000 2016
michelle1908 @nmhouston Put it on my calendar and do it before I start my day. I will plan to do it before I leave work too. #ProdChat Thu Apr 21 00:55:08 +0000 2016
IsaPinaud @dcc1393 Hope to see you again :) #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:55:10 +0000 2016
nmhouston Thanks, everyone, for a great productivity chat tonight! Join us next week at the same time for more #prodchat! Thu Apr 21 00:55:32 +0000 2016
apinaud @michelle1908 learn to first plan for grow and recharge time, then focus time and use the rest of the time to protect those two #ProdChat Thu Apr 21 00:55:39 +0000 2016
IsaPinaud @michelle1908 It took me a while, but having a recurring alarm that reminds me to do it has helped a lot! #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:55:42 +0000 2016
jcaridi123 Thank you @nmhouston for running tonights chat, it was a pleasure! Hopefully I will use these tips in the near future #prodchat Thu Apr 21 00:56:15 +0000 2016
